Stephen Johnson, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, McDermott said at the opening ceremony, “The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is a major engineering and industrial hub in the Middle East and we at McDermott are pleased to be able to partner with a local industry expert to launch our new office and develop and grow our engineering capabilities in the Kingdom.”
