Aberdeen based Maggie Braid Associates (MBA) has won over £1m worth of contracts for 2015 and taken on a new Global Business Development Manager.
The global competence assurance consultancy is well on track to achieving its overseas targets for the year, focusing predominantly on the UAE as well as other thriving oil and gas producing countries such as Australia, Nigeria, Ghana, Angola and Kuwait.
The beginning of 2015 has seen a considerable recruitment drive for MBA, with an expanding team of experienced competence specialists and software developers being taken on to meet the growing demand for their services.
The recent appointment of David Weston as Global Business Development Manager will ensure MBA will achieve its global targets for 2015 and beyond.
David has a multidiscipline engineering background bringing fourteen years of experience in the field of Training and Competence Assurance having worked for Centrica Energy, and latterly as an Auditor for OPITO where he helped design and implement their Competence Management Forum.
David started his career in competence assurance in the Royal Air Force as a Lead Internal Verifier on the engineering apprenticeship programme. Commenting on his appointment with MBA David said “I am delighted to join MBA at this very exiting time for the company. MBA has a fantastic reputation and I’m very much looking forward to becoming an intrinsic part of the team.”
Maggie Braid, Global Business Development Director, welcomes David commenting: “I have known and worked with Dave for a number of years and know him to be a great guy who is professional, approachable with an open friendly style, while being truly client focussed and an expert in the field of competence assurance – in other words a perfect fit for our business development team here at MBA. Competence remains at the core of all businesses as its not only a legal requirement but also a top priority to enable employers to assure the safety of their personnel.”
