The Beginning of a New Era
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Steve Ellis, our long serving Operations Director has decided, for family reasons, that it’s time to return to the UK and will leave Asia Waterjet Equipment at the end of July 2015.
Steve has been instrumental in the success of AWE over the last 12 years, overseeing the significant growth of the business in Dubai as well as the overwhelming success we have had in Singapore. He is a loyal partner and friend to us at Asia Waterjet, and will be sorely missed by all.
The Way Forward
Steve’s position will be filled by Dan Galley, who during his 5 years at Asia Waterjet, has proved himself to be both highly competent and successful in his current position as Regional Sales Manager and gained valuable experience and in depth knowledge of our business.
In order to ensure a smooth and successful transition, there will be a 7 month handover period during which Steve and Dan will be working very closely together and we have every confidence in both the process, and Dan’s future success in the role.
As Dan takes a step up in the business, we wanted to move quickly to replace him, so Dan’s position as Regional Sales Manager for the U.A.E, Qatar and Oman will be filled by a new employee, Kenneth (Ken) Flynn.
Ken has previous experience in both High Pressure and Centrifugal Pumps and has been working in the region for some time. Ken starts on the 11th January, again allowing a 7 month transitional period. Ken’s experience coupled with that imitable Irish charm, means that we are confident all will have a positive experience in working with him.
I am sure that all will join me in welcoming Dan and Ken into their new positions, and wishing Steve every success in whatever future endeavor he may embark upon.
