AXYS has appointed Richard Khaira-Creswell as the director of the Project Management Office (PMO) and senior principle metocean engineer.
The PMO at AXYS coordinates efforts company-wide to help the company meet and exceed clients’ Floating LiDAR and Metocean campaign project expectations.
In this role, Richard oversees a team of project managers who work closely with client teams, internal groups and external partners to ensure AXYS provides accurate, reliable and complete data sets during its turnkey data campaigns.
“We are excited to welcome Richard to the AXYS team,” said PS Reilly, CEO and president of AXYS. “Providing the right data at the right time takes not only superior technology, but also a strong Project Management Office to coordinate efforts and de-risk our FLiDAR and Metocean campaigns. Richard has both the metocean knowledge and “boots on the ground” experience to lead the PMO and make sure we continue to bring the best-in-class value and bankability to our clients’ data campaigns.”
Khaira-Creswell is a seasoned metocean project manager with extensive experience with floating LiDAR and metocean technologies used to support key financial, operational and design decisions with robust high-quality data.
A chartered scientist, marine scientist and marine technologist with IMaREST, Richard has a commitment to help advancing the industry. He has previously worked with Fugro and, most recently, Ørsted as senior metocean engineer with the Measurements Team.
“These are incredibly exciting times for offshore development as we transition to a green economy, and we need reliable and accurate data to accelerate this progress,” said Richard Khaira-Creswell. “The level of redundancy and system integration in AXYS FLiDAR and wave buoy systems provides an unprecedented level of control for our clients to secure robust, high quality Metocean data. From this quality starting point, the PMO establishes and reinforces best practice in everything we do across the organisation to support those systems to ensure we get the best campaign results for our clients.”
