Ross Whittingham, who was previously the firm’s engineering manager, has taken on the role of CEO.
Whittingham has been with Flowline Specialists for 10 years. During that time he has played a role in the strategic planning, management and evolution of the company, led the development of new equipment and delivered global projects for oil and gas, subsea and renewable energy clients.
In addition, group operations manager Graeme Chalmers – who is based in Dubai and leads the firm’s Middle East division Flowline Specialists DMCC – becomes chief operating officer. As COO Graeme will combine overseeing operations in the Middle East with an enhanced role spearheading the international growth of Flowline Specialists.
Ross Whittingham will lead Flowline Specialists alongside the firm’s existing senior management team, which includes Graeme Chalmers and long-standing business support manager Jan Foster, both of whom joined the company in 2011.
The management changes follow former CEO Jim Smith’s decision to leave the company to pursue new challenges.
