Ardan Risk & Support Services is Growing its Operations
Ardan Risk & Support Services has announced it has improved its operational performance and increased its revenue and profitability.
The company, which is owned by AIM-listed Africa Oilfield Logistics, is further augmenting its business with the announcement of three key appointments.
Ardan now operates through three divisions instead of six and has centralised its internal procurement, logistics and support.
This is improving efficiency and controls, whilst the increased visibility of the end to end offering for clients is providing further cross-selling opportunities.
A new regional operational management team has also been recruited, comprising African focused support service professionals.
To facilitate its continuing growth strategy Lachlan Monro, who has 15 years’ senior management experience in support services, has been appointed Chief Operating Officer.
Barry Lobel, who has 12 years’ financial experience, has been appointed Chief Financial Officer and Brendan Scott, who has 15 years’ construction and support services experience in Africa is the new Projects Director.
Chief Executive Officer Carl Esprey said: “Excellent progress is being made in all areas of the business as we look to solidify our position as one of Africa’s leading and fastest growing natural resource focused support services companies.
“The restructuring at Ardan has translated into increased activity and revenue generation, which we anticipate will be reflected in their next update expected shortly.
“Quality management are crucial in the execution of projects and I am delighted that we have secured both highly experienced professionals to head the business as well as new management who are already making a positive impact.
“With these positive changes and Ardan’s established international client base, the group is well positioned to take advantage of the rapidly increasing demand for support services in Africa.”
