Aberdeen-based risk management consultancy Marex Risk and Marine Consultancy (Marex) is on the move.
Significant business growth means that as well as opening a new office in East Anglia, the company is relocating its Granite City headquarters.
The UK-based consultancy, that specialises in managing risk in the energy and marine sectors, is moving its Aberdeen offices to Neo House.
The last two years have seen Marex expand its international reach. With more than 20 global consultants now in place, it continues to support not only oil and gas but also businesses operating in the renewables sector.
This growth has driven the move to the newly refurbished office space on Riverside Drive, as well as reacting to wider changes in the working environment.
Wayne Henderson, Marex managing director, said: “We are looking to the future as we continue helping our clients develop new opportunities.
“While we are committed to retaining a presence in Aberdeen, we decided it was time for a new base as we navigate our way through the energy transition.
“It is the Marex team that maintains our reputation in the industry and it is important to us to support them in striking the right work-life balance.
“So as well as choosing first class facilities in a safe and healthy environment, the rapid evolution of how we work in the last couple of years means that we know we can offer the flexibility and efficiencies of home or hybrid working.”
East Anglia growth
Also supporting the significant steps Marex is making in its diversification into green energy; the new office in Lowestoft reflects the company’s increasing presence in the region.
Wayne said: “Opening the office in East Anglia is a logical step in our strategic growth plan, particularly as we are already operating in Great Yarmouth.
“Our transition into offshore wind has been a particular focus for diversification. It offers opportunities not only to use existing skills and services but to establish a position between windfarm operators and maintenance contractors that allows both parties to work more efficiently and effectively.
“We help our clients manage risk when seizing new business opportunities. It is a specific expertise developed in over 20 years of offshore operation, and our more recent work in renewables.
“The potential for Marex to win more work across the energy sector in the Norfolk and Suffolk regions is huge when you consider our skillset and expertise, and this is one of the main drivers behind this investment.”
