Sparrows Group, an engineering and maintenance services specialist for the global energy and industrial sectors, has appointed David Moore as regional cranes and lifting subject matter expert in Asia-Pacific and Australasia.

Moore will be responsible for providing support to large, complex projects and facilitating tenders and newly won contracts.

He brings with him more than 24 years of experience in machinery design and maintenance and a background in manufacturing, and has worked in both onshore and offshore oil and gas, helping to secure and deliver multi-million-dollar contracts with majors including Woodside, Inpex, Shell and Chevron.

The hire comes at a pivotal moment for Sparrows as the company focuses on expanding into industries beyond oil and gas, such as the industrial market, with its key services including mechanical handling – which is an area of expertise for Moore, who was recently a business line manager for this service offering.

Matthew Marinovich, regional manager – Australasia at Sparrows, said: “As a leading supplier in the energy industry, we are determined to offer the best possible services to clients, wherever in the world they operate.

“By bringing David into Sparrows, we know he can add another dimension of experience and knowledge and help us continue to grow and win contracts. We’re incredibly impressed by his ideas and technical prowess, which will be essential in helping us expand our offering to an even wider range of sectors and projects.”

Moore said: “Throughout my long and varied career I’ve always been driven and determined to achieve the very best outcomes for clients and deliver high-quality work with safety front of mind. I’m hugely excited at the opportunity to play my part in delivering large, complex projects for Sparrows, putting my engineering background and considerable experience in different technical roles to use.”
