Claxton Engineering Services, an Acteon company, has appointed Martin Jolley as vice president sales and commercial to spearhead its global sales and commercial strategy.
Providing leadership and vision to direct the company’s sales, marketing, commercial and tendering divisions, Jolley will be based in Claxton’s UK head office, overseeing commercial development aimed at expanding the business worldwide.
Jolley’s appointment underlines Claxton’s commitment to global expansion and growth of operations. Claxton recently secured its biggest ever riser contract – for the development of the Hanz field, offshore Norway.
Jolley, who has a master’s degree in industrial economics and a degree in engineering science, was previously business development director for Camellia plc., where he was responsible for AKD Engineering Ltd and five other companies within the Camellia group.
Laura Claxton, managing director, Claxton, said, “Our ongoing aim is to extend the responsive, high-quality engineering services that we deliver in the North Sea into new markets. Martin will play a leading role in this and ensure that we deliver the same high levels of customer and market focus in Norway, South East Asia and the UAE. His experience and leadership capabilities will prove invaluable in our continuing international expansion and we are delighted to have him onboard at Claxton.”
Claxton holds one of the largest stocks of subsea risers with a wide array of bore, pressure and complete system options. The company has also pioneered rigless well abandonment operations and has installed approximately 5,000 structural centralizers globally.
