Ecosse hires managing director
Mark Gillespie appointed to help boost growth over next five years
Ecosse Subsea Systems (ESS) has appointed Mark Gillespie as managing director with the aim of boosting company growth over the next five years.
Gillespie (pictured) has more than 25 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry and most recently was managing director of Aberdeen-based engineering and project management consultancy PDi.
ESS founder Mike Wilson said the appointment strengthens the management team and introduces new skills needed to accelerate the business through the next level of growth.
Wilson, who is chairman of the company, will continue to have strategic oversight of ESS and will concentrate on business-to-business relationships, special projects and technology market penetration and adoption.
Gillespie said: “ESS’s long pedigree in oil and gas and its fast-growing reputation for delivering renewables and interconnector projects puts the business on a strong footing for future growth and this was an attractive proposition which was difficult to refuse.”
