Sparrows Group bolsters industry expertise with key hire

Sparrows Group (Sparrows), the engineering and maintenance services specialist for the global energy and industrial sectors, has welcomed an experienced member to its team with the appointment of David Moore as Regional Cranes and Lifting Subject Matter Expert in Asia Pacific and Australasia.

Bringing over 24 years’ experience in machinery design and maintenance, with a background in manufacturing prior to his current focus on cranes and lifting operations, David will be responsible for providing support to large, complex projects and facilitating tenders and newly won contracts.
