Alan McIntyre to run state of the art incident management centre in Aberdeen
Stirling Group, a global provider of health, safety and environmental services to the oil and gas industry, has appointed Alan McIntyre to head up emergency response and crisis management consultancy services in the UK which includes the running of the £250 000 state-of-the-art Incident Management Centre (IMC) in Aberdeen.
The IMC provides round the clock support to global companies in the event of an emergency situation, staffed by an extensive pool of specialist responders and client representatives.
Mr McIntyre will lead a team of more than 20 staff to deliver crisis and continuity management support to clients in the UK and Europe, following Stirling Group’s acquisition of Altor Risk Group last year.
Mr McIntyre joined Stirling Group in 2012 as lead major emergency management instructor and most recently held the position of training manager for UK and Europe.
Previous to working in the emergency response and crisis management sector, Mr McIntyre worked for Rowan Drilling as a safety representative following three years with Petrofac Training Services as a technician.
Angus Neil, managing director of Stirling Group said “Alan’s in-depth knowledge and hands-on offshore experience are invaluable in his role as Country Manager.
“The UK team has created a strong foundation in its first five years of operation. Alan will be instrumental in growing our services to provide oil and gas companies with the skills, knowledge, resources, training and support to ensure they are adequately equipped to deal with any emergency situation.”
Mr McIntyre said: “I am honoured and excited to take on this challenging new role. This is a very exciting time for Stirling Group and I look forward to the opportunity to co-ordinate our efforts across the UK and Europe to ensure we continue to deliver cost-effective services to reduce our clients’ exposure to risk.”
Covering the full HSE spectrum across Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia Pacific, Stirling Group provides consultancy, training and response services in crisis and continuity management, risk and process safety, fire and rescue services, safe journey management, HSE Management and workforce development.
The company provides a complete risk management service and has secured work from organisations around the world.
