Xodus Appoints GM for First Egyptian Office

Thursday, February 8, 2018

Xodus Group appointed a general manager for its first office in Egypt as the company aims to build on its track record in the country and target upcoming new contracts’. The general manager, Salah Farid Tantawy, has 37 years of experience working in oil and gas.

“Xodus has gained a strong reputation within the country over the last few years so I know I am joining a very experienced team with capabilities throughout the lifecycle of an asset,” Tantawy said in a company statement.

Since 2013, Xodus has won over $2.8 million (GBP 2 million) in contracts in Egypt. Much of that work was previously carried out by Xodus’ offices in Aberdeen and London, but the company said an established base was required to increase business in the country.

The new office is located in the Maadi district of Cairo, which is central to many oil and gas company operational headquarters.

“With the addition of Salah and a new office it means we can engage with clients and deploy our services quicker which we hope will lead to us gain considerable new business,” Steve Swindell, managing director of Xodus Group, said in a company statement.
