PJ Valves (PJV), the specialist manufacturer and supplier of valves for the global energy industry, has appointed Tien Do as Group Operations Director to its UK office. Tien will bring the highest standard of customer service whilst leading project delivery and overseeing operations at PJV’s global manufacturing facilities.
Tien has almost two decades’ experience in operational management, project execution and global manufacturing. His previous roles include Director of Projects and Tenders at National Oilwell Varco after the acquisition of Fjords Processing. Previously, he held the position of Operations Director at Fjords Processing from 2007 to 2016, where he led the successful development of its manufacturing facility in Shanghai. In addition to his practical experience, Tien holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering (Honours) and a Masters of Business Administration, both from the University of Western Australia.
Tien has proven expertise in project delivery having played a key role in the Catcher FPSO project, one of the world's largest floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels, where Fjords Processing supplied the largest Produced Water Treatment and Seawater Injection Module. He worked on the project from initial sales lead through to completion of the manufacturing stage, delivering an 18,000-tonne module to the FPSO.
Tien states: “Having worked on large technical projects, I understand the complexities involved and the importance of meeting clients’ exacting standards. Above all, they demand fast execution and a manufacturer they can depend on. PJV already has a strong reputation for its high-quality manufactured products and I look forward to leading its facilities in India and Italy.”
Dan Munro, Group Managing Director, adds: “With over 15 years of experience in the industry, Tien has the crucial role of enhancing our customer service, which is very important to us as a business. He will also ensure all manufactured products remain of the highest quality and are aligned with industry standards. With his wealth of knowledge, including EPC expertise and understanding of valve procurement, he is the ideal candidate to consult our customers, drive our projects forward and champion our manufacturing facilities.”
