New VP to boost Claxton sales, marketing and commercial team
Claxton has appointed Gerry Miller as vice president sales, marketing and commercial in a drive to strengthen its sales, marketing and commercial team. His base will be at Claxton’s headquarters in Great Yarmouth, UK.
Ongoing international expansion has seen Claxton’s commercial team grow significantly, and it is now operating from Dubai, Norway and Singapore. Miller will head the newly expanded commercial department and undertake responsibility for all territories.
Miller has an engineering, operations and project management background, as well as an MBA (2000) from Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, UK. His 30 years’ plus experience in the on- and offshore segments of the oil and gas industry has been with major oil companies such as BP, Shell and Statoil and major engineering service contractors such as KBR, Petrofac and AMEC. He has held various positions in design engineering, construction engineering, operations and operations management but spent the last 13 years focusing on the sales and marketing side of the oil and gas industry.
Laura Claxton, managing director, Claxton Engineering, says;
“Gerry’s appointment is just one aspect of an ongoing strategy aimed at ensuring Claxton is positioned to deliver the family-business quality of service and high level of applied innovation we are renowned for – while we continue to grow our business through our newer bases in Norway, Dubai and Singapore. Our talented sales and marketing team will benefit from his leadership and experience in the industry.”
