ROV specialist Forum Energy Technologies (FET) has recently made a significant move by appointing Martin Thomson as its first energy transition business development director within its subsea business. This strategic decision comes at a time when the company is looking to strengthen its influence in the market, particularly in the offshore wind sector.
Martin Thomson, who will be based in FET’s Aberdeen office, brings with him a wealth of experience in both the offshore and subsea wind sectors. With previous senior sales positions at Subsea7, GE Oil & Gas, KCA Deutag, Oerlikon Surface Solutions, and most recently as sales director for Europe and Africa at Dril-Quip, Thomson is well-equipped to drive FET’s expansion in the energy transition landscape.
His appointment marks an exciting milestone for FET as it deepens its commitment to supporting the transition of the energy landscape, particularly in offshore wind. As FET looks to ramp up its business in the offshore wind sector and expand further within the organization, Martin’s leadership will play a crucial role.
“I am excited to be joining FET at what is a crucial period for the company as it ramps up its business in the offshore wind sector alongside further expansion within the organization,” said Thomson.
According to Ivo Bozukov, Vice President of Dynacon & Energy Transition, FET Subsea Division: “With his extensive experience and leadership acumen, Martin will be instrumental in strengthening our efforts to expand our footprint in the offshore wind sector. His strategic vision and dynamic approach will play a critical role in leveraging our capabilities to align with the growing demand for renewable energy solutions.”
Thomson will report directly to FET headquarters in Houston as he takes on this new role. His expertise and industry knowledge are expected to drive FET’s initiatives forward as they seek to make an impact on the evolving energy landscape.
This move reflects FET’s commitment to staying ahead of industry trends and positioning itself as a key player in supporting renewable energy solutions. It also signals their recognition of the growing importance of offshore wind and other renewable energy sources.
