UK risk firm names new leader for MEACA
London, December 12, 2012
UK’s Altor Risk Group, a leader in understanding risk, has promoted one of its international team leaders, Brian Davis, to the post of business unit leader for the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia (MEACA).
The existing MEACA business unit leader Dominic Webb will now perform the same role for the company’s Asia Pacific (APAC) operation.
Davis has worked for 12 years and in 16 countries as a specialist in many aspects of emergency response, crisis management and business continuity particularly within the oil & gas and aviation industries.
A specialist in developing systems for use in emergency and crisis management situations, he also provides specialist training for on scene response and crisis management teams. Last year Davis achieved Technical Expert status by the Business Continuity Institute.
He said: “It is a great opportunity for me to be responsible for one of Altor’s regions, which will also undoubtedly bring its own challenges. It is a region where we have experienced strong growth and have found a real need for the expert services we provide.”
Established in July 2010 by Jim Walker, Altor Risk Group has offices in Aberdeen, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Perth, Australia.
Walker, chief executive officer of Altor, said: “We have built the business on the ability to provide our clients with access to local expertise able to prevent, prepare for and deal with emergency situations. Our growth means we can provide our services to customers all over the world, even those operating in the most remote areas.
“The increased demand for our services has given us the opportunity to boost our senior staff. This underlines the success we have achieved to date and prepares the way for our continued growth.” – TradeArabia News Service
