Summary

New General Manager for Middle East appointed

qedi, a leading completions, commissioning and technology provider, announces today that it has opened an inaugural office in Abu Dhabi and appointed Naveen Adusumilli as qedi’s General Manager for the Middle East.

Based in the new qedi office, in parent company Amec Foster Wheeler’s existing Abu Dhabi premises, Naveen Adusumilli’s remit is to support business growth in the Middle East and to expand the company’s operations throughout the region.

Demand for qedi’s world leading commissioning and completions services and GoTechnology® software in the Middle East is growing. We have identified new opportunities and engaged with customers in the conventional oil & gas, petrochemical and infrastructure industry and, having already helped to build our presence in the Caspian region, I am delighted to have Naveen building up our Middle East network.
