MDL Names Business Development Director for APAC Region

Maritime Developments (MDL) has increased its support to the Asia-Pacific market with the appointment of a business development director for the region.

Paul Douglas has joined the back deck specialist with more than 20 years of experience in global sales and business development roles, including VP at Aquatic Engineering & Construction and business development manager at Subsea 7.

From his base in Perth, Australia he will focus on supporting the company’s existing clients in the APAC area, as well as building the MDL brand in the region.

Douglas said: “I have known of MDL almost since they started in the oil and gas business and have been watching their progress from the sidelines.

“They have always impressed me with their fresh approach to the challenges of portable flex-lay equipment and it seems like the market needs their innovation now more than ever.

“The company’s portable portfolio carries huge savings for vessel owners and operators around the globe so I am very excited to be part of this team and drive its global development efforts.”

Derek Smith, CEO of MDL said: “I’m glad that Paul has joined our team – he is a great fit for MDL to build a solid foothold for the company in Asia Pacific.

“Having spent most of his life in the marine industry, he has a thorough understanding of the challenges faced in this sector, and how smart equipment like ours can mitigate or eliminate associated risks and decrease operational costs.

“On top of that, he brings on board invaluable experience of working in different regions around the world in various business development roles – all of which will help accelerate the company’s global growth.”
