Reporting to Jan-Hein Dissel, COO of Supply Chain Solutions at ISS, he will head up an experienced business development and operations team based in Dubai.

Captain Durnan was commissioned as a Naval Officer in 1978 and spent his career serving on various U.S. Navy ships. His final at-sea posting was as the first Commanding Officer of USS Oak Hill which deployed to the Mediterranean theatre. Latterly, he worked in senior roles with both the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff and U.S. Naval Forces Europe.

His insights, built through many years of dealing effectively with governments across Europe, North America and the Middle East, will be invaluable to ISS.”
