Bibby Offshore, the leading subsea services provider to the oil and gas industry, has appointed a new general manager for renewables.
Dorothy Shepherd joins Bibby Offshore with more than 15 years of experience in the energy industry.
She has spent a significant time at The Crown Estate, a key player in supporting the delivery of energy supply for the UK, and brings with her a wealth of offshore renewables knowledge, a press release said.
In her new role, Shepherd will be instrumental in the delivery of new business in the renewables sector. The role will include supporting existing business development and tendering efforts, while collaborating with Bibby Offshore’s sister companies Bibby Marine Services, which offer SOV and Walk to Work vessels and Bibby HydroMap, which offer a range of seabed survey services.
The appointment follows the formation of Bibby Offshore’s new business optimisation team, led by Graeme Wood, as part of the company’s strategic growth strategy. The primary purpose of the team is to facilitate a number of key business initiatives, accelerating the business through the next level of growth.
Shepherd said: “I am thrilled to be joining Bibby Offshore and to be working with a company which has such a strong track record. I am confident my knowledge will help to identify new opportunities in the renewables market and deliver the strategic results required for long-term success.”
Graeme Wood, business optimisation director at Bibby Offshore, said: “Renewables has been a key element of Bibby Offshore’s strategic growth plan for a number of years, and Shepherd’s appointment demonstrates the importance that we attribute to this market as a potential source of revenue in the future."
