JFD has appointed Valerio Percoco as sales director.
The appointment follows the company’s contract win with NATO, as well as the merger of James Fisher Defence, Divex and the National Hyperbaric Centre.
Valerio Percoco joins JFD from Offshore Installation Services (OIS), the subsea integrated project management service provider.
Giovanni Corbetta, managing director, JFD said: “We are very pleased to welcome Valerio to the team, and I am confident that he will provide a significant contribution to the continued growth of JFD.
“2015 was a landmark year for the business, following a number of mergers and acquisitions which broaden our range of capabilities and services in the defence and commercial diving markets, as well as several significant contract wins including the landmark £12.1m contact for the provision of the NATO Submarine Rescue System (NSRS).
“It is therefore important that we further develop the infrastructure of the business and scale up accordingly to ensure we are able to meet the demands of our global customer base, both now and in the future.”
JFD also recently announced the expansion of its UK footprint with the opening of new offices in Glasgow and Bristol.
