Ardyne announce Senior International Appointments

15th February 2018

Ardyne is accelerating the global implementation of its leading casing recovery technology with the addition of two senior international roles - Jacob Wright as Gulf of Mexico Region Manager, and Ed Kerr as Far East Business Development Manager.  Both Jacob and Ed bring a wealth of oilfield experience to Ardyne:

Jacob Wright worked as a Field Engineer, Operations Coordinator and Account Manager for Baker Hughes prior to joining Knight Oil Tools where he was most recently a key member of the management team, in the role of Vice President of Operations managing multiple business units across 9 districts in key US basins.  Jacob will play an instrumental role in managing relationships with Ardyne’s Houston-based clients and will lead Ardyne’s growth in the Gulf of Mexico Region.

Ed Kerr has worked in various roles with Baker Hughes, from Field Engineer to Operations Manager in a multitude of international locations. Ed has spent 7 years in the Far East in various management roles spanning operations and business development, and was most recently Product Line Manager for Completions & Wellbore Intervention.  As Ardyne begins to bring its technology to wells in the Far East, Ed will play a pivotal role in shaping Ardyne’s footprint in the region.

Alan Fairweather, CEO of Ardyne, said: “Following Ardyne’s field successes in 2017, and significant expansion to our operational and HQ team in the North Sea, Ardyne is taking shape as a global provider of downhole technology for mid- to end-life wells.  A major factor in our success has been assembling a team that have a proven track record in service delivery and providing solutions in a timely manner – we are absolutely delighted to have Ed & Jacob as part of the team as we enter the next phase and continue to build our international offering."
