Mermaid Maritime, an international subsea and offshore drilling services company, has appointed Raza Ullah Khan as the company’s new CFO and Darren Morgan as the executive vice president of Mermaid Subsea Services.
Mermaid said on Monday that the appointment of the new CFO comes as a result of a recommendation made by the Nomination Committee.
The company added that the appointment will provide continuity to the finance and accounting team as Khan will be able to leverage on six years of experience with the Mermaid Subsea Services Unit.
He will be responsible for the overall finance and accounting function of the company.
Khan’s previous experience also includes the roles of audit supervisor associate at KMPG Fakhro, a management accountant at Schlumberger Seaco and five years as an audit supervisor at PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Mermaid also named Darren Morgan as an executive vice president of Mermaid Subsea Services. The company said that Morgan’s qualifications and extensive work in the offshore oil and gas industry in both operations and commercial roles will contribute to streamlining and enhancing Mermaid’s subsea services business.

Morgan’s role at the company will be the management and oversight of the company’s subsea services business.
