As managing director of MSIS Group, it’s my responsibility to manage the company’s resources to ensure we successfully meet our business objectives and report back to the board.
My number one priority is to ensure that we continue to comply with all health, safety and environmental regulations and mitigate any potential hazards, as the company operates in environments which pose high risks. I also ensure that we do this in a cost efficient manner to deliver value to our clients.
Another key part of my role is to ensure that the management team have the resources, processes and support to deliver this is on a daily basis.
MSIS provides specialised environmental services, more specifically, tank cleaning with confined space entry and managing toxic waste. Our core markets are offshore and onshore which are supported by our bases in Aberdeen and Invergordon.
Someone who is able to make decisions in a calm and rational manner. Understands their own weakness’s and are able to build teams around that.
Given the current challenges and uncertainty in the oil and gas industry, its ensuring we keep our levels of investment up and provide innovative solutions to sustain our growth and value to our clients.

I wanted to join the Merchant Navy.
No phones ringing.
With the new investment that has been injected by Primary Capital I would like to see the company grow by introducing innovative cost saving solutions to our clients in the UK and expanding our presence in the international oil and gas markets, thereby strengthening our position as a specialist in our field.
Make a plan and stick to it. As Butch Harmon said ‘If you aim at nothing you will sure as hell hit it!’
I fulfilled my boyhood dream of going to sea and joining the Merchant Navy.
After spending five years in the Merchant Navy, I started working offshore in the North Sea in the late seventies. After gaining considerable experience in the field I came ashore in the late 80’s. Since then I have been involved in a number of successful companies that I helped to build. I also spent nine years with Schlumberger Oilfield Services.
