Swire Oilfield Services Appoints New CEO

Swire Oilfield Services, a supplier of cargo carrying units to the offshore energy industry, has appointed John Bruce Rae-Smith as its new CEO.

He succeeds Tor Helgeland following his retirement in August after 22 years with the company. Smith has been an integral part of the Swire group since 1985 in a variety of roles, says Swire, gaining significant experience in the offshore energy industry as managing director of Swire Pacific Offshore.

Most recently, Smith was director of Swire Pacific Ltd and executive director of the trading and industrial division.  

Based in Aberdeen, Smith will join the company’s management committee alongside Roy Shearer, chief financial officer, and Wayne Manning, chief business development officer, to drive the company towards achieving its vision of being recognized as an essential part of upstream activity.

“I’m delighted to be joining Swire Oilfield Services, I wish Tor all the best in his retirement and look forward to continuing to build upon the successes that he achieved in his time as CEO,” said Smith.
