Paul Smith has been appointed group managing director at UTEC Survey.
Since joining Acteon in 2011, Smith has undertaken a variety of commercial and operational roles.
He was instrumental in the merger of UTEC with NCS Survey in 2015 and was, most recently, responsible for the day-to-day management of UTEC’s operations worldwide.
As a member of UTEC’s senior management team since 2016, Smith helped the company to navigate a challenging period in the industry’s fortunes and enabled it to emerge with a more consistent approach across all operating regions and a focus on quality.
“I am looking forward to building on the efforts made by everyone in the organisation over the past few years, cementing our hard-earned reputation for service quality and working to grow the business from what is now a very sound base,” Smith says.
Smith took over from previous managing director Stuart Cameron and will lead UTEC from its headquarters within the Acteon building in Aberdeen, UK.
