Interwell UK has a change in managing director with David Aitken taking on the role with the departure of Andrew Louden.
 
Andrew Louden joined Interwell in December 2010 to establish a UK subsidiary of Interwell AS. Over the last four years the UK business has gone from strength to strength with the team growing from an initial two employees up to its current headcount of 48.
 
His leadership has overseen growth in revenues from just over £1m to more than £16m. During this period the team have established a strong safety and quality focus and have achieved ISO9001, 14001 and 18001 accreditation.
 
The UK organization now enters a new chapter with expanded geographical responsibility for West Africa operations. Andrew has decided to pursue a new challenge and has handed the reins of responsibility to David Aitken, who has worked alongside him since the UK’s inception in January 2011.
 
Dave joined Interwell as the UK Operations Manager, following a long and distinguished career with a major service company where he had overall responsibility for its North Sea slickline business.
 
Dave became the UK Country Manager at Interwell in 2014 and is well known in the Aberdeen well services community where his depth and breadth of knowledge is highly respected. In Dave’s new role as UK Managing Director he will assume responsibility for all of Interwell’s core business activities in the UK and West Africa.
 
Interwell’s CEO, Eirik Bergsvik, said: “I’d like to thank Andrew for his significant contribution to the growth of the Interwell business in the demanding UK market. He has built, and leaves behind a strong, committed team.
 
“Dave’s acute focus on safe operations and service quality, his proven management skills, and his comprehensive understanding of running a well services business makes him the ideal person to lead the UK team during this exciting new phase of further expansion.”
