Woodman is experienced in export credit financing and has been at the forefront of many of the projects supported by UK Export Finance (‘UKEF’) in the UAE over the past seven years.
In his new role with ASGC UK, Woodman will oversee relationships with UAE-based customers who are seeking UKEF-supported financing for their forthcoming projects, while also expanding the business’s activities into the wider GCC and select markets in Africa.
With significant experience working with organisations in both the UK and the Gulf, Woodman previously spent seven years as managing director of the Kier Group in the Middle East.
Prior to that, he held several senior positions with CarillionInternational in the UK and Al Futtaim Carillion in the UAE.
Bishoy Azmy, CEO of ASGC, said: “With his extensive experience both in the region and in the UK, Paul was the ideal choice to head up our UK division.
“We welcome him on board and look forward to his contribution in further strengthening ASGC’s relationship with partners in the UK, the UAE and beyond.”
