Penspen underlined its commitment to growth in the Middle East with three new appointments and investment in a new office in Iraq.
Ahmed Al-Dadah and Na’el Barghouthi have this month joined the company from other engineering providers, while Michael Simm, executive vice president of engineering and project management, has been newly appointed to the role of regional director for Penspen’s Middle East business.
Al-Dadah has been appointed to the role of business development director for exploration and production management. He joins the company from Amec Foster Wheeler, where he spent 12 years working in various project delivery and business development roles.
