Wood Group PSN has appointed Andrew Stewart as its new managing director of its operations in Australasia and Asia Pacific. Stewart continues is rise through the PSN ranks after moving up from the position of the company’s southern business manager in Australia.
The 36 year old, who is from the Melbourne area, joined Wood Group PSN Australia in 2009 after other roles in the UK, India and the Netherlands.
Regarding the appointment, Mr. Stewart said “It’s an exciting time to be a leading brownfield production services contractor in the Australia & Asia Pacific region. We have an amazing group of people spanning project management, engineering, business services and the full suite of maintenance and construction trades. What this means for our customers is low transaction costs and single point accountability for ‘cradle to grave’ delivery performance.”
Stewart replaces Mat Gavin, who held the post as Wood Group PSN’s regional director for more than five years and is largely credited with expanding the business from a staff of 700 to over 2,000 during that time and currently has operations in Papua New Guinea, Singapore, New Zealand as well as Australia.
Wood Group PSN’s chief executive Robin Watson commented, “Andrew has played a key part in our regional growth story and in transforming our southern operations in Australia where we maintain contracts with Esso, Caltex and Melbourne Water. He is an exceptional leader who has a natural ability to engage with customers and employees alike. I am very much looking forward to working with him to grow our business in this important region.”Last updated on 11:55PM - 31/07/14
