ASCO has appointed Deborah Benjamin as managing director for Trinidad & Tobago as it looks to build on more than 20 years of local operations.
Ms Benjamin will manage local operations across the Caribbean and South America.
The Dyce-headquartered logistics and materials management company has been established in the region since 2000 and provides logistics, warehousing, marine gas oil, bulk storage and marine services to support the energy industry.
With over fifteen years of experience in the energy, retail and supply chain sectors, Deborah’s breadth of expertise will contribute to strengthening ASCO’s position in the region as it continues to grow.
Commenting on her appointment, Ms Benjamin said she was excited to be joining a strong and valued team.
“There are solid business opportunities in the region, and I am looking forward to expanding our operations. I am confident that utilising ASCO’s experience in supplying a fully integrated solution, we can build upon what has been achieved across our locations and use it to grow the local energy sector while maintaining high levels of service delivery to our customers,” she said.
ASCO managing director for international Fraser Stewart added: “I am delighted to have Deborah on board to continue our growth as the market leader in Trinidad & Tobago and the wider region. Her experience, knowledge and leadership will greatly strengthen the team.”
The appointment continues a strong year for the company, following the award of several North Sea contracts earlier this year with a combined value of around £200 million.
