He held several leadership positions including UK managing director for the subsea division of Aker Solutions and UK regional general manager for GE Oil & Gas.

Most recently, he was a supply chain consultant to the UK Government’s regulatory body, the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA) and contributed to Oil & Gas UK’s Efficiency Task Force. Corbin, who has been a board member of industry body Subsea UK since 2014, has also been supporting Scottish Enterprise’s ‘Grey Matters’ program in an advisory capacity.

Based in Aberdeen, Corbin will lead the UK and European business operations for Sparrows. He will be responsible for maintaining its leading market share position in lifting operations and maintenance in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS).

Sparrows CEO, Stewart Mitchell, said: “Matt has enjoyed a very successful career to date with an enviable track record of successes at some of the world’s biggest oil and gas service companies. His work with organizations such as the OGA and Oil & Gas UK demonstrate how highly respected he is by his peers and throughout the sector for his breadth of experience, knowledge and leadership qualities.

“His appointment will help to drive our business forward and enhance the capabilities of the group across the region. We look forward to Matt working with us.”
