Software consultancy to boost headcount after senior Aberdeen hire

Software consultancy AG is looking to increase its foothold further in the energy sector and heavy industries and boost its headcount after a key senior appointment in Aberdeen.

Greig McDonald will spearhead the firm’s next phase of strategic growth in the North-east.

Bosses said the business was experiencing a steady increase in demand from companies looking to improve their SAP system capabilities to streamline complex business processes and improve efficiencies.

AG is headquartered in Slough, Berkshire with delivery centres across India serving clients and projects across Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Americas. Last year, the firm was recognised as one of Europe’s fastest-growing companies in the FT1000.

Based at the company’s Aberdeen base within the Mariscal Square development, McDonald joins AG with more than a decade’s experience of leading and managing SAP enterprise software divisions for several North Sea and Middle East operators and supply chain companies. This includes Subsea 7, where he was most recently for almost four years, as well as North Oil Company Qatar, Maersk Oil and CNOOC.

“With my experience and insight coupled with AG’s SAP credentials, I am looking forward to leveraging these strengths to spearhead significant efficiencies for our clients.”
