Christian Brown said, “Adding James Compston to our management team provides us with a very strong hand in developing our existing relationships with key global clients and for exploring new opportunities in the wider infrastructure space.
“His wide ranging experience in senior business development roles is a welcome quality and aligning with John Grover, they will both be instrumental in driving forward our international integrated services offering for complex energy and infrastructure projects and operating assets.”

The integrated services we can offer and our highly skilled workforce and track record for completing complex workscopes, puts us in a strong position to take our business to the next level.”
