Leading global engineering specialist and pipeline maintenance expert, Wellube, a Unique Group company, has announced the appointment of Garry Kidd as Managing Director, as it completes a major rebrand as part of the renewal of the business, strategy and corporate vision. 
 
Beginning his career in the North Sea, Garry, brings over 13 years of experience in senior leadership positions to the role, 10 years of which were based in the Middle East.
