Welaptega Names New General Manager

Welaptega, an underwater inspection provider, has appointed Tyler de Gier as a new general manager for its global business.

Tyler de Gier has been promoted from within Welaptega and will be based in the company’s headquarters in Halifax, Canada.

The appointment is part of an international growth strategy for the business and follows the acquisition of the company by global subsea equipment and solutions specialist, Ashtead Technology.

Tyler de Gier will oversee the day-to-day running of Welaptega, applying the group strategy and growing the business globally, with the support of Ashtead Technology.

He holds a B.Eng in mechanical engineering and during an extensive career with Welaptega has held business development, engineering and project management roles.

He previously worked for the Canada-Nova Scotia offshore oil & gas regulator (CNSOPB), where he was advisor – offshore installations and safety officer.

Allan Pirie, CEO of Ashtead Technology, said: “With his engineering background and vast experience of the Welaptega business and mooring inspection technology, Tyler has the skills and knowledge to support the company’s growth ambitions. I look forward to working closely with him as we continue to deliver a comprehensive asset integrity management service to our clients.”

Tyler de Gier said: “I am very pleased to be taking on this role at Welaptega at such an exciting time for the business. The acquisition by Ashtead Technology has given us the opportunity to invest in R&D, further develop our state-of-the-art inspection technology, and expand our international presence to provide a local service delivery to our clients.”

The announcement of a new general manager for the business follows two further appointments by Welaptega of business development managers in the UK and USA. The appointments mark the first time Welaptega has had a presence in these energy hubs and have been made in direct response to industry need.

Jonathan Miller is based in Ashtead Technology’s Houston office in the USA and Kyle MacInnis has relocated from Welaptega’s headquarters in Halifax (Canada) to Aberdeen in the UK. Both are tasked with implementing and managing business growth and are supported with locally based equipment and service personnel.
