Swire Energy Services, the world’s largest supplier of specialist offshore cargo carrying units and leading supplier of cargo carrying solutions, modular systems, fluid management and offshore aviation services, has restructured its leadership team and created two new senior roles to support an ambitious growth plan for 2015 and beyond.

The two new roles, HR Director and Chief Business Development Officer, will help the company develop new product lines and expand into new markets as well as continuing to provide career opportunities and a great working environment for its global team.

Wayne Manning has been appointed as Chief Business Development Officer. Wayne joined the company in 2010 as General Manager for Africa, before moving on to become Regional General Manager for Europe and Africa. In his new role Wayne will be responsible for diversification, evaluating the commercial opportunities of new product lines and services including Modular Systems, Track and Trace Solutions and Special Units. He brings a wealth of experience from a varied career spanning a variety of industries including travel, advertising, media and PR.

HR Director, Dag Rune Gabrielsen, joined Swire Energy Services in Norway in 2007 as HSEQ and HR Manager before becoming Group HR Manager in 2012. In his new appointment Dag Rune will lead people development and a global HR strategy to underpin the company’s expanding business. Dag Rune has enjoyed a diverse career that includes positions in the police force and the army.

Tor Helgeland, Chief Executive Officer, said: “It’s an exciting time for Swire Energy Services. The pioneering edge of our people and the innovation of our technology means we’re at the forefront of our field.

The appointment of Wayne and Dag Rune to the global leadership team is a central part of our growth strategy for the coming years. Their collective experience across a variety of industries combined with their in-depth knowledge of our business positions them perfectly to help us realise our ambition of becoming an essential part of upstream activity. Both appointments are testament to our investment in our employees, and show our commitment to developing our existing talent to the highest level. I look forward to working with them both as we continue to expand our international business.”
