Matt Corbin, regional operations director for the UK and Europe at Sparrows Group.

Aberdeen crane engineering company Sparrows Group has brought in a new regional director to spearhead its operations in the UK and Europe.

Sparrows said Matt Corbin would be responsible for maintaining the firm’s market share in the two regions and finding ways of growing its footprint outside the oil and gas sector.

Mr Corbin used to be UK managing director of Aker Solutions’s subsea division and UK regional general manger at GE Oil and Gas.

More recently, he worked as supply chain consultant to the Oil and Gas Authority.

He has been a board member of industry body Subsea UK since 2014.

Sparrows chief executive Stewart Mitchell said Mr Corbin’s appointment would help “drive the business forward”.

Mr Mitchell said: “Matt has enjoyed a very successful career to date with an enviable track record of successes at some of the world’s biggest oil and gas service companies.

“His work with organisations such as the OGA and Oil & Gas UK demonstrate how highly respected he is by his peers and throughout the sector for his breadth of experience, knowledge and leadership qualities.”

Mr Corbin said: “Sparrows has an unrivalled reputation across the globe for its equipment, engineering services and its talented personnel who consistently deliver for its clients.

“These factors, coupled with the potential for increasing the business’ footprint with existing and emerging sectors, are what attracted me to this role.

“This is a great opportunity to be involved in some exciting projects and realise targeted growth while exploring new ways to deliver maximum value to customers.”
