Scotland-based energy equipment manufacturer and service provider Flowline Specialists announced changes to its senior management team, including the appointments of Ross Whittingham as CEO and Graeme Chalmers as COO.

Whittingham, who was previously the firm’s engineering manager, has been with Flowline Specialists for 10 years. The new CEO will lead Flowline Specialists alongside the firm’s existing senior management team, which includes group operations manager and now COO Chalmers – who is based in Dubai and leads the firm’s Middle East division Flowline Specialists DMCC – and long-standing business support manager Jan Foster, both of whom joined the company in 2011.

The management changes come after former CEO Jim Smith’s decision to step down after 11 years with Flowline Specialists. He has left the cable and pipe handling, deployment and recovery solutions provider to pursue other opportunities, the company said.
