Caley Ocean Systems has appointed a new Managing Director amid a suite of management changes within the Seanamic Group.
Douglas Morrison will assume the position with immediate effect, taking over from David Cooper who has stepped into an engineering advisory role. Mr Morrison has latterly worked as the firm’s Project Director.
In addition, Keith Hamill has been appointed as Caley’s Sales Director.
Mr Cooper will also step down from the role of CEO of the Seanamic Group. The international engineering corporation is now under the helm of Martin Barnes, who successfully managed the acquisition of IMES International in 2016.
The Group has also appointed Charlie Backhouse to lead the new UK office of Umbilicals International, which is headquartered in Houston, Texas. Mr Backhouse joins the Group from JDR Cable Systems, where he was in charge of running international operations.
David Pridden, Chairman of the Seanamic Group, said: “David Cooper has shown unstinting loyalty to the Seanamic Group and Caley Ocean Systems for a number of years. He ensured the Group thrived during turbulent times, and his steady leadership of Caley has positioned it as an internationally recognised provider of offshore handling systems for the energy, defence, seismic and oceanographic science industries.
“Douglas, Keith, Martin and Charlie bring a wealth of experience to their new positions, and I look forward to seeing the Group strengthen and grow under their leadership.”
Newly appointed CEO Martin Barnes said: “As a Group, we have hard working and talented people, recognisable brands and excellent track records. I look forward to working across the companies to integrate our capabilities, and bridge the gaps through further acquisitions, to support our clients. Our new Umbilicals International office in Scotland will only strengthen our position, so we can provide a more valuable service to our clients.”
