Global standards and workforce development organization OPITO has appointed a new director of the company.

OPITO said on Tuesday that Stuart Clow was named as a new director with a remit focused on supporting industry safety through high-quality training and competency standards.

Clow has over 30 years of experience in the oil and gas industry in a variety of roles both in the UK and internationally including Africa, South America, and the Middle East.

He spent 28 years with Transocean, latterly as a workforce planning manager where he was responsible for resource planning for both offshore and onshore operations in the eastern hemisphere and also worked on major capital projects globally.

Clow spent the last 16 months with Norwegian firm COSL Drilling Europe where he established crew resource requirements for its North Sea operations.

John McDonald, CEO of OPITO said: “Stuart has impressive and varied industry expertise from being involved in drilling operations offshore to managing complex global resourcing and workforce requirements for a multi-national company.”

The new director will be based in Aberdeen, leading the approvals team which oversees the international training provider network and managing workforce development programs including the successful Oil and Gas Technical Apprentice Program (OGTAP).

Regarding his appointment, Clow said: “Having worked offshore for 18 years in different global locations and then being fortunate to lead global workforce development programs, I’ve witnessed first-hand the importance of consistent standards. I’m looking forward to supporting the organization with its ambition to maintain quality at every step of the process.”
