Ashtead Technology appoints Middle East Regional Director

Ashtead Technology has further strengthened its global leadership team with the new appointment of a regional director to oversee operations in the Middle East.

Brad Kirkland, who joined the specialist subsea equipment and IMR services company in February, is based at the firm’s Abu Dhabi facility.

With a career spanning more than 15 years focusing on international subsea asset integrity and project management, Brad most recently held the Middle East, India and Caspian Regional Marine Asset Integrity Director role at Fugro, having joined the business in 2012.

I've lived and worked in Abu Dhabi for several years and I am very attuned to the industry's demands in the region. Ashtead Technology has a first-class reputation and I'm excited to have joined the team as the group's capabilities in the region continue to grow.

"The additional cutting services and asset integrity monitoring solutions which the group acquired last year provide additional services which will be rolled out in the region over the coming months to better support our clients.

Brad Kirkland, Regional Director - Middle East

Brad brings a wealth of knowledge and first-hand experience of successfully managing subsea projects, which will help to drive the business forward and support this next stage of Ashtead Technology's growth plans in the Middle East.
