Aiken Group recently bid a fond farewell to well respected friend and colleague, when Alex Wood retired after ten years with the company.
Glasgow-born Alex began his career as an apprentice piping draughtsman and engineer at piping fabrication and installation company Munro and Miller in the early 1960s. From there, he went on to grow his career with a variety of industry names and in a variety of posts, ranging from senior project engineer and construction manager to global construction and commissioning manager.
Most recently, Alex worked as sales and marketing director for Aiken Group, based at the company’s global headquarters in Aberdeen.
During a career spanning many decades, Alex gathered a wealth of experience both at home and overseas in locations such as Abu Dhabi, Brunei, Japan, Korea and Singapore and Aiken Group was delighted to draw on these years of expertise during his decade with the company.
Commenting on Alex Wood’s retirement, Aiken Group managing director Danny Donald said: “Alex is the embodiment of the rich and diverse opportunities which exist within the oil industry, and his passion for the industry he has been part of for so long is unrivalled.
“We as a company feel honoured and privileged to be able to tap into the breadth and depth of experience he brought to us, and we are very grateful to Alex for his commitment, passion and enthusiasm during his ten years with us.”
