Swire reshapes management for growth

Swire reshapes management for growth
ABERDEEN firm Swire Oilfield Services, which supplies specialist offshore containers, has reshuffled its boardroom team in a move it says will help to propel it to further growth.

ABERDEEN firm Swire Oilfield Services, which supplies specialist offshore containers, has reshuffled its boardroom team in a move it says will help to propel it to further growth.

Rupert Bray has been appointed as chief operating officer, having served as director and UK general manager for three years.

Roy Burrell, Swire’s operations director since 2002, takes up the roles vacated by Mr Bray.

Swire said the management changes were part of global expansion plans, under which the firm would add more than 4,000 cargo-carrying units to its international fleet this year and construct multimillion-pound bases in the Gulf of Mexico, Angola and Nigeria.

Mr Bray was seconded to Swire in 2007 from parent company John Swire and Sons, having spent 12 years working for its airline subsidiary Cathay Pacific Airways.

As chief operating officer, his focus will be the day-to-day operations of Swire’s 14 subsidiary firms, the group’s global growth plans and the introduction of new product lines.

Mr Burrell joined Swire as operations manager in 1997 and was promoted to operations director five years later.

Swire said he was integral to the rapid growth of its UK operations, including the construction and opening of new operating bases and refurbishment facilities in Aberdeen and expansion of the group’s UK workforce to more than 100 employees.

It added: “Mr Burrell will ensure the UK business remains highly responsive to industry customer requirements and is well-positioned for growth during 2010 and beyond.”
