ROMAR International appoints international business development manager

Thursday, Dec 13, 2012

Aberdeenshire-based oilfield service company ROMAR International has
appointed an international business development manager to focus on business opportunities in the Middle East, North Africa and India.

Lyle Hopkins is responsible for identifying new commercial opportunities and driving growth across these regions. He joins the company after accumulating many years' experience within the oil and gas industry working in various international locations including Dubai, Oman and India.

ROMAR's core business is in the provision of magnetic separation products and services for the offshore oil and gas industry worldwide. The appointment is amongst a number of initiatives taken by ROMAR to ensure the business meets its on-going strategy for international growth.

Prior to joining ROMAR, Mr Hopkins worked for Tesco Canada International in Dubai for three years where he was responsible for developing North African markets and supporting sales in the Middle East and India. From 2006 to 2009 he was sales and operations manager for Tesco Corporation UK, working with casing running and top drives.

Mr Hopkins also has experience in sales consulting and product development and has held positions at Noble Drilling, Petro Care Supply and Western Well Tool. In his new role he will be based at ROMAR's head office in Newburgh, Aberdeenshire.

ROMAR International commercial director, Robbie Gray said: "Lyle Hopkins
joins the company at a very exciting time for ROMAR as we continue to
progress into further international locations. The Middle East, North Africa and India are significant areas for ROMAR and his expertise and knowledge will be invaluable towards achieving our plans for international expansion in the coming years. We are committed to growing and maintaining our reputation for providing high quality products to our clients.

"As a business development manager for ROMAR, Mr Hopkins will be working to shape the expansion of the company's strategy by analysing the market and advising ROMAR directors of development opportunities. He will also work to initiate and develop business relationships with existing and potential clients."

ROMAR has continued to increase its staff numbers this year in response to business growth - the company currently has 16 members of staff and plans to expand this by a further five-six in the coming months.

Since 2001 the company has grown in size and currently trades in many
oilfield industry provinces including the UK and Norwegian North Sea, West Africa, Gulf of Mexico, SE Asia and South America. Its success is
underpinned by its ability to set up strategic partnerships in regions where ROMAR's products will be well utilised.
