OTAQ has appointed Tom Houghton as Business Development Manager for the newly formed OTAQ Connectors Division which has been created following the acquisition of Link Subsea Ltd earlier this year.

Tom has been working in the offshore industry since 2006 and brings extensive ROV knowledge combined with an in-depth understanding of technology in the subsea oil & gas sector. He started out in a hands on role as a ROV technician before moving into sales management and business development most recently in Unique Group.

Tom said “OTAQ Connectors has an incredible heritage in underwater connector design, engineering and production from our base in Cumbria spanning back to 1997.  I am relishing the opportunity to present OTAQ Connector products and services to the market as I believe we present a unique proposition in terms of our in house skills, high quality products, short lead times and over 20 years experience.”

Chris Hyde, Chief Commercial Officer of OTAQ Group said “We are delighted have Tom join us at OTAQ and further strengthen our team.  His industry knowledge will be a very valuable part of our introduction of the OTAQ Connectors brand to the market which includes the launch of several key new products in the coming months.”
