Ocean Installer appoints Michael Newbury as President for its US office, located in Houston, Texas. The Ocean Installer Houston office has been established to cater for projects run out of the US.
“In line with our vision of becoming a key service provider in the global subsea market, opening an US office has been a natural step. Michael Newbury was chosen as President due to his extensive managerial experience and long track record from the US subsea industry, and because of his ambition to develop Ocean Installer to become an established contractor also in the US,” says Steinar Riise, CEO of Ocean Installer.
Michael Newbury comes from a position as Vice President for Operations and Business Development with the US based subsea contractor Deep Down, Inc. and has extensive senior experience from the US subsea industry, including Subsea 7 and Halliburton.
The process of opening an Ocean Installer US office was initiated last year and is now completed with the registration of the Ocean Installer legal entity, Ocean Installer Texas Inc., and the appointment of Michael Newbury as President. The Ocean Installer US branch will serve as an office for project development and management and is an important step in Ocean Installer’s global expansion.
Michael Newbury enters his new position in April 2013.
