On 12 January 2013 our office in Mumbai, India celebrated its tenth anniversary.
The office’s General Manager, Anil Borkar, hosted the celebration, which was attended by Craig Muir, Managing Director, Engineering & Consulting Services (ECS) and Rajesh Verma, Managing Director.
Anil Borkar, Vice President and General Manager of the Mumbai office described the growth he has witnessed: “The first five years were a period of growth and establishment within Petrofac. These last five years have been about reinforcing capabilities and competencies, setting up robust systems, honing processes; and shaping our culture.”
During the ceremony eight of the Mumbai office’s longest standing employees were congratulated and presented with a certificate to mark ten years of service.
Gwen Folland, Group Head of Corporate Social Responsibility, also joined in the celebrations along with local school children and colleagues from the Mumbai office. Commenting on the Mumbai team’s commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR), Gwen said: "It was a great pleasure to be part of these celebrations. Our colleagues in Mumbai have built up a successful business over the last ten years, with a significant focus on supporting the local community.
"The main focus of Petrofac’s social and community investment is on global education initiatives. The education initiatives which the Mumbai office supports, such as the scholarship programmes and infrastructure development of the tribal schools, are all designed to help foster a better working environment for young people. I‘ve been fortunate to visit all the Mumbai schools which Petrofac supports, and have been humbled by the commitment of the children to learning, their self-discipline and respect for others, and the dedication of the teachers. It is self-evident just how much the schools appreciate Petrofac’s contribution.
“I’m sure the Mumbai team will continue to grow and excel, and I wish them all the best for the future.”
Mr Anil Borkar closed the celebrations by thanking the organisers of the evening, the Energising Committee, and the Master of Ceremonies Dnyanesh Kamath, Head of HR in Mumbai.
