World leading industrial technology specialist Tracerco, part of the Johnson Matthey group, has appointed Gary Phillips as the new head of its operations in Aberdeen.
Gary takes up his new post having worked for Tracerco for 13 years, latterly as Reservoir Technical Manager, and has over 20 years' experience in the industry, primarily in reservoir operations and characterisation.
Working from Tracerco's base in Carden Place, Aberdeen, Gary's considerable experience and knowledge will enable him to effectively represent all areas of the Tracerco business in the North-East and ensure enhanced client service delivery.
He said: "The Aberdeen oil and gas market is a significant one for Tracerco. We value very highly the clients that we have here, and we recognise that there is great potential for further business in the area.
"As an Aberdonian, having the opportunity to oversee our Aberdeen operations is a great opportunity and one that I am looking forward to. It is a pleasure to represent a world-class business such as Tracerco and to be able to demonstrate the value of our products and services to the Aberdeen oil and gas industry. My role will be to maintain and where possible enhance the excellent reputation Tracerco has in this part of the world."
Assisting Gary in his new position is John Lambley, Tracerco's radiation protection advisor (RPA) consultant. John will oversee all RPA matters for the company's customers in Aberdeen and the North Sea. Formerly an in-house RPA in Aberdeen with a North Sea operator before joining Tracerco as base manager in Aberdeen, John has been an RPA since 1986 and has considerable
experience and knowledge in radiation protection, in addition to having an extensive understanding of the UK Continental Shelf. Tracerco managing director, Andy Hurst said: "The experience and technical expertise that Gary and John bring to our team in their new roles are invaluable to Tracerco. Their vast experience of the industry and the UKCS will help us to form even closer links with our valued customers in Aberdeen."
