(Aberdeen, UK) – 14 September 2017 – Westwood Global Energy Group (Westwood) is expanding its consulting team with the addition of two experienced professionals as it witnesses increased market activity levels. The new additions enhance Westwood’s consulting capabilities, based out of its offices in Houston, Aberdeen, London and Singapore.

Ian McDonald joins Westwood’s Aberdeen office as a Manager. He has a strong background in corporate finance, having previously worked for RSM, Campbell Dallas and Clydesdale Bank with a focus on the upstream oil & gas sector.

Boris Adokou joins the London office as an Associate, having spent five years previously at Schlumberger Oilfield Services as a Senior Field Engineer. Boris was also a recipient of the merit based bursary at Cambridge University, where he pursued an MBA with a specialisation in Strategy and Finance. Both Boris and Ian will report to Director and Head of EMEA Consulting, Arindam Das, who comments:

“We are seeing increased momentum in the market, particularly in areas such as M&A, financial restructuring and re-financing. Many corporates are also revisiting their strategic goals and initiatives in a dynamic commodity price environment.

“With the oil & gas industry going through such a profound shift, it’s essential that we have right skill set within our business to address our clients’ needs. Ian and Boris bring a wealth of knowledge and relevant expertise, which will be key in the continued provision of commercial advisory services to our global client base.”
