Subsea services provider, Rever Offshore (formerly Bibby offshore), has appointed Bob Bryce to the newly-created role of Operations Director.
Mr Bryce’s 40-year career in the oil and gas industry has seen him hold senior leadership positions on a global basis with key subsea-surf contractors, including McDermott, Subsea7 and Technip.
He joins Rever’s executive team with a remit to oversee the operations, assets & services and QHSE functions. He does so as the company announces a board re-structure and will sit alongside fellow-executive team members, Barry Macleod (CEO), Nicky Etherson (Commercial Director) and Neale Stewart (Chief Financial Officer).
The reorganisation reflects the commitment to strengthen operational execution, together with a real focus upon growth opportunities. An increase in flexibility and responsive decision making will allow Rever to reinforce client relationships and exceed expectations.
Commenting on Mr Bryce’s appointment, Barry Macleod said: “It is a pleasure to welcome Bob to Rever Offshore’s executive team. His strong track record in day to day project operations and EPIC contract execution will add valuable strength to the company.
“He brings a huge amount of experience in asset development – from the design and build of vessels and heavy installation equipment, to global CAPEX portfolio management – and we are confident that his skills and experience will ensure we continue to create sustainable competitive advantages.”
Bob Bryce commented: “I’m looking forward to help shape the direction of future activities for Rever, at what is an exciting time for the company. The role will allow me to play a key part in delivering the strategic results required for continued success and I’m delighted to be working with a company with such a strong track record in the subsea services sector.”
