Subsea Innovation has reinforced its senior management team with the appointments of a Non-Executive Director and a Business Development Manager.
James Ritchie and Chris Wann have taken up the respective roles.
James Ritchie joins the board whilst maintaining the position of CEO at Tekmar Energy.
“I am joining a strong company that is looking to grow into new markets with innovative products and solutions for the offshore sector that is ideally placed to provide its clients with efficient equipment that will save time and money on projects. Its 25 year track record over such a varied product range sets it apart from any other company I have worked with” said Ritchie.
“The recent delivery of the Mattress Deployment System is evidence of Subsea Innovation’s potential to develop new products from conceptual design to a finished product.”
Chris Wann joins from Pipe Coil Technology where he had the role of Business Manager. He will be responsible for further driving forward Subsea Innovation’s commercial and business development for new products and new clients across the globe, the company said.
Managing Director at Subsea Innovation, Martin Moon, said: “Appointing James and Chris greatly strengthens our commercial and sales team and gives us the potential to access new markets where our track record and experience can be demonstrated for clients.
“James’s knowledge and contacts in the offshore wind market will be an invaluable asset to our company at a time when the oil price is under pressure.”
