Welligence’s next destination – Middle East and North Africa

November 18, 2021

ABU DHABI, Nov. 18, 2021 – Welligence Inc. has announced the hiring of Martin Sherriff to lead its upstream expansion into the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) regions. Martin, based in London, is joined by two analysts with MENA expertise. Hiring for the team is set to continue into 2022, as the group looks to press forward with upstream asset valuation and energy transition coverage in the region. The group will be launching full coverage of three countries from the region by the end of November.

The Welligence hiring spree in the UK continues, following the build-out of its North Sea and Sub-Saharan Africa teams over 2020-2021, in addition to business development, client support, and data science roles. The company has ambitious plans to continue hiring.

“The Middle East and North Africa not only represent some of the most prolific upstream producing areas in the world, but they will also play a vital role in the energy transition. Many of the countries are on the cutting edge of new technologies and partnerships, and Welligence looks forward to being a key provider of intelligence from across the region,” said Welligence CEO Ross Lubetkin. “Welligence has long looked forward to this pivotal moment in our growth. Visiting Dubai last week and then Abu Dhabi this week for the ADIPEC Conference has confirmed just how dynamic the region will be for many years to come.”

Prior to joining Welligence, Martin worked for IHS Markit for seven years, where he managed a team covering upstream asset valuation and marine support vessel tracking in the Middle East and Indian subcontinent regions.

The addition of the Middle East and North Africa platform will bring Welligence one step closer to global upstream coverage, complementing the company’s growing upstream energy transition business. Over the last year, Welligence has announced several strategic hires, with major announcements expected to continue through early 2022.
