Global energy industry support services company Asco Group, of Aberdeen, said yesterday it had appointed “seasoned” executive Gary Paver as chief financial officer.
Mr Paver is a chartered accountant with more than 25 years’ experience in oil and gas.
His career includes stints with Halliburton, Petroleum Engineering Services and, most recently, as senior vice-president, finance, at KCA Deutag.
Group finance manager Marianne Lipp has been Asco’s interim CFO since last May, after Mark Walker left the business to join drilling waste management specialist TWMA as CFO.
Asco chief executive Peter France described Mr Paver as “an extremely accomplished individual, with a proven track record and private equity experience”.
Mr France added: “I have no doubt he will play a pivotal role as part of the leadership team as we seek to grow and strengthen the business.”
Mr Paver said: “I have gained considerable experience during my career, driving business strategy and direction, and I am very much looking forward to working with the management team and making a positive contribution to Asco’s strategic objectives.”
