Atlantis Resources announces the appointment of Ian Cobban as an independent Non-Executive Director with immediate effect.
Ian has over 30 years’ experience in the subsea construction, operations and maintenance industry. He first joined Subsea Offshore Ltd, a subsidiary of Subsea 7, as an Offshore Inspection Coordinator in 1985. Thereafter Ian held various positions within the business, including General Manager with responsibility for the Asia Pacific and the Middle East; Vice President for Global Project and Operations in Aberdeen and Vice President for the Gulf of Mexico, covering the USA, Mexico and Trinidad.
He was recently Vice President, Health, Safety, Security, Environment and Quality (HSSEQ) at Subsea 7, where he reported directly to the CEO.
The Company also announces that Rune Nilsen, Non-Executive Director, is stepping down from the Board with immediate effect, having served a successful four year term on the board of Atlantis.
John Neill, Chairman of Atlantis commented:
“I am delighted to welcome Ian to the board of Atlantis. His expertise in offshore construction and over 30 years in the subsea and marine industries brings a wealth of experience to our Board as we increase our focus on the execution of our strategy. He has an excellent track record in the offshore construction industry and is well known in the UK and international oil and gas community. He is therefore well equipped to assist the Company as we prepare to commence our offshore operations at the MeyGen project site in Scotland later this year.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Rune for his substantial contribution to the Company over the past four years. He has been involved with the Company during an amazing period of growth and success. The Board wishes him well for the future.”
