OSSO, the specialist fluid temperature control and separation solutions provider, has appointed David Mitchell as Middle East Manager in Dubai, UAE to implement its regional growth strategy.
David brings 23 years of industry experience, having previously worked in global operational leadership roles at Hoover Ferguson and FMC Technologies, with a particular focus on the Middle East. His extensive energy sector knowledge has seen him successfully grow plans in prior roles, leading multimillion-dollar projects and ensuring design standardisation across oil and gas products. With a wealth of experience across the Middle East, and his understanding of client challenges in the oil and gas market will be essential in spearheading OSSO’s regional growth.
Mitchell comments: “There is huge opportunity in the Middle East for OSSO. Especially for advanced fluid cooling solutions and environmental solutions like ours. We’ve seen a recovery in demand for energy as we come out of the pandemic, this along with commitment to provide cleaner energy makes it’s an exciting time for the entire energy sector. I’m joining a strong team who’s customer service is second to none due to their hands on rig experience and deep understanding of solving client challenges. I’m excited to work with our team and local partners to grow our capabilities across the middle east.”
The appointment follows OSSO’s recent partnership with Medra Arabia, the national diversified oil and gas service company, in Saudi Arabia. Through this agreement OSSO now provides clients with direct access to its rental fleet of equipment, along with rig site support and heat transfer solutions in the Middle East. The company plans to significantly grow its Middle East footprint in the next three years with Mitchell at the helm. With his appointment and strong experienced team in the region, the company will invest in new product lines, geographies and people to support its goals.
James Scullion, CEO at OSSO, said: “We’re delighted to have David join our expert team in the region and for him to power our ambitious growth plans – driving the business forward. His impressive experience in leading growth strategies and delivering on enhancing product design will significantly build on our successes to date in the region. We see ample opportunities for helping clients address challenging fluid treatment problems across sectors, from oil and gas to wider energy and we have the people to make that happen.”
