Viking SeaTech Appoints New GOM Managing Director

Global offshore support specialist Viking SeaTech will officially announce the arrival of Gulf of Mexico Managing Director Tom Bower this week at Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston. 

Group chief executive Bill Bayliss said: "Tom is a spirited and inspiring leader to steer future American operations.  Formerly of Topaz Energy and Marine, Tom brings almost 30 years of experience to our leadership team. We are recruiting a talented group of highly skilled individuals to support Tom and drive Viking SeaTech's achievable ambitions.  Tom's rich industry knowledge and clout will attract new business and I look forward to the exciting future ahead. I am confident we can maintain the company's success and continue to exceed our customers' expectations stateside.

"Tom will define our strategy to move into the U.S. to strengthen Viking SeaTech's international reputation as a premier supplier of services and solutions. The U.S. market will also be a crucial stepping stone into neighbouring territories as part of group-wide development."

With offices in all of the world's main oil and gas hubs including Aberdeen, Stavanger, Perth, Singapore and Jakarta, Viking SeaTech has a knack of locating emerging business locations and developing their services within the specific marketplace.

Bayliss continued: "We can sense when a potential opportunity for business growth should be translated into reality. Indonesia is fast becoming one of the industry's brightest prospects and we moved swiftly to cultivate our name there. The Jakarta office is an example of our proactive nature and indicates our flexibility in an ever-evolving global energy sphere."
