Byrne Group names new Chief Commercial Officer

The appointee had been leading the company’s operations in UAE and Oman for the past several years

Equipment rental specialist Byrne Group has announced the appointment of Steve Caygill to the role of Chief Commercial Officer.

The former Regional General Manager and Group Head, Specialist Divisions for Byrne’s UAE and Oman operations, officially began the role last month, the company said.

Spending almost two decades in oil and gas, logistics, and construction across the Middle East and in his native Australia, Caygill joined Byrne in 2011 in the role of Area Manager for Dubai and Northern Emirates before becoming the Regional General Manager covering the UAE, Qatar and Oman. In 2021, he added Group Head Specialist Divisions to his role.

In September 2022, Johnson Arabia enhanced its rental fleet with a wide range of new battery-powered equipment and, in early November 2022, Construction Machinery Middle East said its forthcoming Access & Handling Summit will showcase ‘smarter ways to work at height’.

Speaking on the appointment Byrne’s Deputy CEO Pat Fallon said, “I am delighted to announce the appointment of Steve to the role of Chief Commercial Officer, a role in which he will work closely with myself and the group’s senior management team in delivering on our business objectives, as we continue our focus on sustainable growth as one of the leading equipment rental suppliers in the Middle East.”

He concluded, “Steve is well positioned to step into this role; since joining Byrne Group 11 years ago, he has led the team in delivering the strong growth of the business in UAE and later Oman.”

In mid-November 2022, United Rentals said it would acquire Ahern Rentals for $2bn.
