Aker Solutions has appointed David Clark as regional president of the UK and Africa to oversee an expansion and support operations in these key markets.
Clark, a UK national, has more than 30 years of experience from the oilfield services, projects and contracting industry, most recently as vice president of production facilities for Schlumberger. He has also held leadership positions at Wood Group and Technip and has broad international experience in overseeing operations and new business developments.
Clark will be based in London and work on expanding Aker Solutions’ international presence with a special focus on the African market. He will assume the position on September 21 and report to Chief Executive Officer Luis Araujo.
“David is a true oil and gas professional with extensive experience in some of our most important markets,” said Araujo. “His strong track record in business development will be of major value as we grow in strategically important regions such as Africa.”
Aker Solutions, based in Norway has operations in more than 20 countries. The company in 2011 established regional management teams in key markets to better coordinate customer contact and operations between its business areas, Subsea, MMO and Engineering. The UK role has been expanded to include Africa, a major growth market, according to Aker Solutions.
