JDR extends Sales Team as it grows Offshore Wind and Subsea Power Cable business


Brad Rabone appointed as UK & Southern European Sales Manager for Subsea Power and Renewable Energy Cables

4 November 2013: JDR, a leading provider of technology connecting the subsea energy industry, is pleased to announce the appointment of Brad Rabone as UK and Southern European Sales Manager for subsea power and renewable energy cables.  The appointment comes as JDR targets further growth in offshore wind subsea power cable markets.

Brad, who joined in September 2013, will be responsible for developing and implementing sales strategies, creating new business opportunities and providing greater support for existing JDR clients in the UK and Europe.  Brad has over 10 years industry experience and joins JDR from French cable supplier, Nexans, where he was UK Infrastructure Sales Manager.

Paul Gahm, EVP of Sales & Marketing said: “I’m delighted that Brad has joined JDR at such an important moment.  Renewables, in particular offshore wind, are an increasingly important energy source as Governments seek to balance their energy mix and reduce dependence on hydrocarbons.  Brad’s knowledge of medium and high voltage power cables will be invaluable as we drive the next generation of renewable energy cables and support oil and gas operators as they electrify the seabed.”

Brad Rabone said: “I am delighted to be joining JDR at a time of great promise for the offshore renewables sector. It is great to work for an industry leader, particularly one which is supporting British industry by manufacturing cables in the UK. I hope to be able to help grow the company’s markets both in the UK and abroad”

John Price, Sales Director – Subsea Power Cables, added:  “We are pleased to welcome Brad on board at JDR. His appointment will help the company build on our impressive roster of clients in existing markets and give us capacity to target new markets for power and renewable energy cables”
