Kreuz Subsea continues growth strategy with senior appointments
Singapore based subsea services firm beefs up senior management as it seeks to expand in the Middle East.
Global integrated subsea services business, Kreuz Subsea, has strengthened its senior management team with two appointments at its Singapore headquarters to support its global expansion plans.
Pradeep Verma has joined the company as chief commercial officer while Marek Kaminski is welcomed as director of marine assets. The duo brings more than 50 years of combined oil and gas experience to their roles.
Verma will be responsible for strengthening the company’s position in its core markets of India and Asia Pacific and the growth of business into the Middle East.
He joins the business from Larsen & Toubro where he was most recently the head of business development – offshore. Prior to this, Verma was regional proposals and commercial head at McDermott International where he was responsible for business development and project acquisitions across the South East Asia region.
Verma commented, “Kreuz Subsea is a forward-thinking and dynamic business which has built an unrivalled reputation as a key player in the global subsea services industry.
“It’s an exciting time to be joining the business as it looks to enforce its ambitious growth strategy and expand into new markets such as the Middle East while continuing to support our clients in South East Asia and India.”
Meanwhile, Kaminski has joined the firm from Subsea 7 where he held the role of regional vessel and asset manager, based in Houston, Texas. He also worked at EMAS Offshore for five years and Rubicon Oilfield International prior to this. Kaminski brings more than 30 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry, specifically across project management and operations roles.
As director of marine assets, Kaminski will be responsible for the overall supervision of the company’s owned and chartered fleet.
These recent additions to the senior management team follow on from last October’s changes to the top positions at Kreuz Subsea which saw AJ Jain recruited as CEO and Balaji Bhashyam COO. The firm also appointed Phil Bradbury as QHSE director at the end of 2017.
Kreuz Subsea was established in 2008 as an integrated subsea solutions provider to the global energy industry. It has operational bases in Brunei and India, and has around 400 personnel onshore and offshore.
