By Belinda Smart25 November 2022
Byrne Group in Dubai, UAE, has appointed Steve Caygill as Chief Commercial Officer.
Caygill was formerly Regional General Manager and Group Head Specialist Divisions for the group’s UAE and Oman operations. He took up the role on 1 October 2022.
Byrne’s Deputy CEO Pat Fallon said the appointment would see Caygill “work closely with myself and the Group’s senior management team in delivering on our business objectives, as we continue our focus on sustainable growth as one of the leading equipment rental suppliers in the Middle East.
“Steve is well positioned to step into this role; since joining Byrne Group 11 years ago, he has led the team in delivering the strong growth of the business in UAE and later Oman.”
Caygill’s career spans two decades in the oil and gas, logistics and construction industries in the Middle East and his native Australia.
He joined Byrne in 2011 in the role of Area Manager for Dubai and Northern Emirates before becoming the Regional General Manager covering UAE, Qatar and Oman. In 2021, he added Group Head Specialist Divisions to his role.
“Steve has a depth of industry experience, as well as a sound understanding of the Byrne business, so we are confident that this appointment will enhance our ability to achieve growth, improve operational efficiencies, and deliver long-term value, while nurturing the Byrne brand and the organization”.
Caygill commented; “Byrne Group has experienced significant growth and transformation over the past few years and looking forward, the future is bright.
“With on-going significant investments in our people, services and equipment, our highly skilled team of experts are well-prepared to meet the region’s increasing demand for high quality, reliable equipment rental solutions and I am looking forward to what’s to come next for us.”
In 2020 Byrne made a number of management changes that saw the return of Fallon, formerly COO, to the business as deputy CEO.
