The office has an initial staff of 27 employees, including 22 engineers, with room to expand over time to 37 employees. "We are pleased to be back in New Orleans and committed to building our future in Louisiana," said Bob Deason, President and Chief Operating Officer of J. Ray. "The Engineering office in New Orleans is a key part of J. Ray's strategic plan, providing invaluable support to our local customers, our operations at the Morgan City fabrication facility and our projects at other facilities around the globe." "J. Ray McDermott has a long history in Louisiana," said Louisiana Economic Development Secretary Michael J. Olivier.
