Bringing more than 18 years’ experience in the electrical and power generation sectors, Damien makes the move from Crestchic’s UK office in Burton on Trent, where he worked as a Test and Commissioning Engineer. He now has a clear vision to drive the business forward at his new base in Dubai, UAE.
Damien worked with Crestchic loadbanks during his service in the Royal Air Force, where he became a specialist in site set-up and automation of pump installations.

“I really enjoy working for the organisation so when I was offered the opportunity to develop the business overseas I was delighted to accept. I believe that my experience, coupled with Crestchic’s vision for the Middle East, will result in a resounding success. It’s definitely going to be a rewarding challenge and I am eager to get started.”
