Machado previously served as managing director of Maersk’s operations in Brazil, where he played a key role in developing training for the wind and production industries and expanding its service solutions, said Maersk.

As managing director of MTUK, Machado aims to make the company the preferred training and solution partner across the oil and gas and renewables sectors. 

The appointment follows a recent GBP720,000 (USD1 million) investment to expand MTUK’s service offering. This has included an upgrade to its Training Management Service (TMS).

“Covid-19 has sped up the digital agenda, prompting us to introduce e-learning courses as well as blended solutions alongside accredited training bodies,” Machado explained. 

“By offering smart technology to manage the admin and logistical tasks associated with training we have established a greater partnership with our clients. TMS passes on cost and time savings, and due to its contactless nature, has offered a seamless approach into the cultural work changes we have seen during the pandemic,” Machado added.
