UTEC, a global survey company in subsea services group Acteon, has appointed a new group managing director.
UTEC said on Wednesday that it named Paul Smith as the group’s new managing director.
Smith took over the position from previous managing director Stuart Cameron on August 20 and will lead UTEC from its headquarters within the Acteon building in Aberdeen, UK.
Since joining Acteon in 2011, Smith has undertaken a variety of commercial and operational roles. He was a part of the merger of UTEC with NCS Survey in 2015 and was, most recently, responsible for the day-to-day management of UTEC’s operations worldwide.
As a member of UTEC’s senior management team since 2016, Smith helped the company to navigate a challenging period in the industry’s fortunes and enabled it to emerge with a more consistent approach across all operating regions and a focus on quality.
Regarding his appointment, Smith said: “I am looking forward to building on the efforts made by everyone in the organization over the past few years, cementing our hard-earned reputation for service quality and working to grow the business from what is now a very sound base.”
