IXSEA has announced the appointment of Richard Parkinson as Offshore Business Director.
Parkinson, an Oceanographer and Surveyor, was the founder, Managing Director and major share holder of UTEC Services Ltd, a start up offshore survey company set up in 2003. After attracting investment in UTEC’s survey services from a Houston based investment group, which allowed the company to expand, he became Sales and Marketing Director of UTEC Survey Ltd and now brings extensive experience in the offshore industry to IXSEA.
"We are confident that Richard will be an outstanding addition to our offshore team," said Thierry Gaiffe, IXSEA President. "During his career, Richard has shown his leadership qualities and innate understanding of the offshore sector."
Speaking of his appointment Parkinson said: "I have been using IXSEA products over the past seven years and as a contractor have benefited significantly from the quality and integration of IXSEA’s navigation, positioning and imagery systems and solutions. I relish the opportunity to deliver and develop IXSEA's state-of-the-art technologies, through our rapidly growing offshore team, to the solution hungry offshore survey industry."
