Tekmar appoints new chairman

NEWTON AYCLIFFE, UK -- Offshore cable protection company Tekmar Energy has bolstered its senior management team with the appointment of Ally MacDonald as the new chairman.

With 25 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry and a background in engineering, MacDonald brings a wealth of knowledge to the role where he will help to further drive forward Tekmar’s business growth.

He joins Tekmar after five years of executive management positions at Wellstream, which was acquired by GE Oil & Gas during 2011. Prior to that, MacDonald spent 19 years with Technip and was managing director of their DUCO umbilicals business. An engineer by trade, he graduated with an honours degree in mechanical engineering.

Founded in 1985, Tekmar initially specialised in oil and gas before expanding into the offshore renewables industry when it developed bespoke cable protection systems for cables connecting wind turbines. The company recently announced that it has further enhanced its oil and gas industry offering, whilst maintaining its leading position in offshore renewables.
