Kevin Kneebone named as new GCS Country Director for Iraq

We are glad to announce that we have expanded the GCS team with another seasoned industry expert: Kevin Kneebone (48) will lead GCS’ operations in Iraq as Country Director. He was the Managing Director of Bactec for 7 years and has implemented many successful land and marine clearance projects since 2003.

With the support of Kevin Kneebone, GCS is looking forward to rapidly entering the market. Having considerable experience working in this region, Kneebone states: "Iraq represents a substantial opportunity given the right technical and operational approach while also taking into consideration the unique operating environment. The variety of UXO, mines and IEDs is very challenging."

Philipp von Michaelis, CEO of GCS, welcomes Kevin Kneebone to the GCS team: "Kevin brings a wealth of experience to the GCS team. Especially his experience in land and marine is a big asset for GCS. Therefore, we are happy to have Kevin also working on strategic topics and helping us to develop our business."
