Bridgeporth is pleased to announce the addition of Derric Richardson to their executive team in the position of Vice President of Sales. With over 17 years of experience as a geophysical service provider in the petroleum exploration industry, Richardson brings strong management skills and a proven ability to increase sales in the competitive oil and gas sector.
Derric has worked as the Business Manager and most recently, the International Marketing and New Ventures Manager for Tesla Exploration Ltd., a specialist geophysical firm with a wide client base across the oil, gas, mineral, and civil engineering industries. He has had a truly comprehensive background in the seismic and geophysical industry, getting his start as a young man in the field before turning his sights to a sales role in 2005.
Over the last 9 years in his previous role, Richardson built a proven track record of successful sales and satisfied clients. “Bridgeporth’s technical prowess and client-oriented approach makes it an appealing opportunity. I am excited to be joining a new company focused on innovation and positioned for strong growth,” said Richardson.
Bridgeporth has successfully capitalized on the significant increase in the use of airborne gravity and magnetics, particularly in underexplored, frontier regions. While the majority of its airborne acquisition projects are currently in Africa, Bridgeporth is a global provider of gravity and magnetic data acquisition, processing, interpretation, and project management. “At a time when our company is experiencing significant growth, I am delighted to have an individual with Derric’s experience in geophysical services leading our sales team,” said Dr. Mark Davies, founder and CEO of Bridgeporth Ltd.
“With Derric’s global experience coupled with our company’s offerings, he will be able to offer our clients and prospects cutting-edge technology combined with the exceptional, bespoke service that is the Bridgeporth brand.”
