Mark Cowieson – Operations Manager, Archer
Mark is the Operations Manager at Archer, the world’s leading platform drilling provider and has mark-cowieson-docmastered the art of adding his warm and witty personality to the oil & gas industry.
Mark studied Mechanical Engineering design at Aberdeen Technical College while completing a technical apprenticeship with local crane engineering firm Sparrows.
Mark has worked in the offshore industry since 1990 and has far too many shaggy dog stories about the places and intriguing people he has been blessed to meet along the way.
Mark believes it his duty to inspire the next generation of oil industry leaders and actively shares his knowledge and experiences with university students and oil industry employees.
Mark was awarded the Oil & Gas UK award for Safety Leadership in 2012. He works tirelessly with industry bodies to improve safety standards in the offshore working environment.
He is doting father of two stroppy teenagers, (although his son will never forgive him for missing his birth when stuck offshore on an oil rig at the turn of the century) and a loving husband to a beautiful woman who has put up with an awful lot.
