As of 1 April 2016, Chadd will be responsible for overseeing the fulfilment of all strategic initiatives, as well as driving day-to-day execution of business globally.

Before joining CIS, Chadd worked as a Conductor Installation Engineer in the field – both onshore and offshore – installing conductors and piles around the world for nearly four years for BJ Tubular Services.
CIS, a member of Acteon’s Conductors, Risers and Flowlines group, provides conductor and pile installation services associated with construction projects carried out in the global oil and gas industry. These services are carried out both onshore and offshore to, for example, create foundations for new wells, platforms, bridges and jetties.
