April 5, 2023

Viper Innovations is delighted to announce the appointment of James Carnegie on the Board of Directors. James joins existing board members Managing Director Edward Davies, Finance Director Hugo Mansfield, and Founders/Directors Neil Douglas and Max Nodder. This appointment follows other senior appointments at the company over the past few years, all of which have been aimed at strengthening the board and senior management to support significant global growth.

James has been a key member of Viper since joining in August 2020, driving the business forward in his role as Sales (subsea) and Delivery Manager along with being a key member of the operational management board. James brings a wealth of leadership experience from his previous roles as Engineering Manager for GE Oil & Gas UK and in Vice President & Engineering Manager positions for Aker Solutions Malaysia. A skilled engineer and sales executive, his leadership and management skills will now benefit the business more widely from this board position.

The new addition to the company’s board reflects the significant, consistent growth and diversification of Viper’s technology into new sectors and applications. As part of its ambitious global growth strategy, the company has invested in increasing its support, local presence and focus in key markets including the Gulf of Mexico, Brazil, Norway, China, Malaysia and Australia. This growth has also been reflected in the expansion of Viper’s core engineering team who are dedicated to delivering the significant R&D activity required to support future products and markets.

Edward Davies, Managing Director, commented: “I’m delighted that James has accepted our invitation to the board. He is a significant talent and his skills add to those of the existing board members. This move is in line with our growth strategies which James will play his part in delivering.”
