MDL maximises focus in the Americas

Maritime Developments has strengthened its sales force with the appointment of Andrew Blaquiere as Vice President – MDL Americas.

Andrew joins MDL from a flex-lay equipment supplier where he held various positions including business development manager and proposal/project manager. He joins Mark Williamson, President - MDL Americas, in Houston to support the company’s continued growth in the offshore Americas market.

Andrew said:

“MDL has an excellent track record of being a technology partner with key clients in the subsea installation sector.

“I’m delighted to be joining a forward-thinking business and be a part of its growth journey.”

The news follows shortly after the announcement of MDL’s partnership with Delmar Systems, a global mooring specialist, which will see a complete MDL flex-lay spread set permanent base in the Gulf of Mexico, in Delmar’s Port Fourchon, Louisiana facility.

Derek Smith, MDL CEO said:

“It’s been an eventful few weeks for MDL as we’ve been ramping up our American operations.

“We have grown our physical presence in this key region twofold: firstly by moving our equipment across to set up a dedicated base for the Gulf, but also by expanding our customer-focused team.

“We quickly recognised Andrew shares our passion for delivering value to customers through personal service and targeted solutions, and so we’re pleased to welcome him as part of the MDL team.”
