Rory joined CleanSubSea Holdings in October 2015 and has over twenty-five years professional experience and success in both the corporate world and more recently the SME environment.
This has included corporate accountability in regional VP, operational GM, and global business development & supply chain management positions, culminating in the successful start up and ownership of his own business which is now a market leader in Malaysia, operates across four countries and employs over 180 people. In particular much of his focus has been in corporate business start-ups and effective, scalable business growth for established businesses, whether directed by market geography, core competencies, customer alliances or competition in the Asia Pacific, Australia, European Union and North American markets.
Rory has developed these skills in a number of business sectors including F&B Processing Technologies, Packaging, Manufacturing and Financial Services. Exposure to decision making at the Corporate Board level, while also leading the local teams out in the field of multi site operations, often in challenging settings and culturally very different environments, has developed a strong international strategic business sense combined with a hands on financial and operational leadership focus.
In his role as COO, Rory will lead the effort to commercialise this new and innovative technology across all aspects of the business.
