Petrotechnics opens new Saudi office
Dubai, July 26, 2011
Petrotechnics, the global leader in providing frontline work execution solutions to the oil and gas sector, has opened a new office in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia.
The new office will allow leading organisations in asset-intensive industries to better benefit from Petrotechnics’ market leading work execution solutions to improve their frontline operational risk management and operational efficiency and optimisation.
The company will operate directly in the Saudi market as a registered, wholly owned foreign investor.
Zaid AlShaddadi has been appointed to head up the new office. He takes on the role of territory manager and will be responsible for driving Petrotechnics operations, growth, and profitability throughout the Middle East region.
AlShaddadi has more than ten years experience of enabling asset-intensive industries, including oil and gas, petrochemicals, telecom and aviation, to adopt IT solutions. These include complex IT business applications and enterprise platform technologies.
Prior to joining Petrotechnics, AlShaddadi spent six years working in a variety of business development positions with Oracle Corporation, a provider of the world’s most complete, open and integrated business software and hardware systems.
"The Middle East offers a highly promising market and well-developed supporting infrastructure. We have already undertaken a number of contracts in the region but there is tremendous scope for us to do more,” Iain McKay, executive vice president.
“The opening of the new office is part of our aggressive growth strategy to scale our presence worldwide and will enable us to provide focused, scalable and efficient in-region management, support and solutions to current and prospective customers,” he added.
AlShaddadi said: “I am excited to be joining Petrotechnics as it enters a period of growth. I have spent many years working with companies to provide specialist IT solutions and look forward to working with the team of industry respected experts at Petrotechnics.” – TradeArabia News Service
