A PARTNER from BDO International specialising in the oil and gas industry has joined the board of Dragon Oil.
Justin Crowley, audit and assurance partner at BDO International, the world’s fifth-largest international accountancy network, joins oil and gas explorer Dragon Oil as an independent non-executive director.
Based in Dubai, Crowley specialises in regulated industries, the oil and gas industry and other manufacturing and industrial sectors.
Prior to joining BDO International, Crowley had an extensive audit career with PwC and with two UK-based mid-tier auditing firms as a director. His working experience covers external audit services; internal audit, specifically risk management, corporate governance, compliance audit; as well as forensic audit and corporate advisory. He is a member of the ICAEW.
Mohammed Al Ghurair, chairman of Dragon Oil said: “Following the resignation of Nigel McCue earlier this year, we had been looking for a non-executive director with strong accounting experience and we felt Mr Crowley was the right person. He brings extensive external and internal audit experience, risk management and corporate advisory skills, as well as understanding of corporate governance.
