GREAT YARMOUTH -- Claxton Engineering Services, an Acteon company, has appointed Gerry Miller as V.P. of sales, marketing and commercial in a drive to strengthen its sales, marketing and commercial team. His base will be at Claxton’s headquarters in Great Yarmouth, UK.

Miller has an engineering, operations and project management background, as well as an MBA degree from Robert Gordon University. His 30 years’ plus experience in the on- and offshore segments of the oil and gas industry has been with major oil companies such as BP, Shell and Statoil, and major engineering service contractors such as KBR, Petrofac and AMEC. He has held various positions in design engineering, construction engineering, operations and operations management, but spent the last 13 years focusing on the sales and marketing side of the oil and gas industry.
