  • Tony Mitchell - General Manager

    Aman Water and Air Manager Technologies Middle East

    As General Manager of Aman Water and Air Manager Technologies Middle East (divisions of Bahrain Energy Services) I have been working closely with Contax Partners since 2011 and have found them to be discrete, trustworthy, efficient and entirely professional in all dealings. Contax Partners have an excellent broad sector and market knowledge and an enormous network of industry contacts, particularly at senior levels, in sectors such as Oil & Gas (the wider energy sector), Petrochemical, Water & Electricity, Construction, and Healthcare, which are the focus sectors for our Clo2ix and Air Manager products and services.
     
  • JEREMY NOTHINGHAM – PARTNER

    COALTECH

    I have had the privilege to be associated with, and to work alongside the Contax Partners team for the past 4 years, and have always enjoyed doing business with the various members of their multi-talented team. Whether undertaking a study, developing ideas for a new investment, or developing a plan for the investment, or implementing that plan, the team works together seamlessly to make things happen in the best interests of their clients, they come highly recommended.
     
  • PAUL SCHOENFELD - MANAGER OF MARKET INTELLIGENCE & SPECIAL PROJECTS

    SHELL EXPLORATION & PRODUCTION CO.

    We used Contax Partners as a way to gain access to experts in a specific market where they have individuals with ‘boots on the ground’. I found Contax Partners to be particularly accommodating to the timeline required, and was impressed with their clear expectation setting from the onset. Furthermore, I found the support and interface to be top notch. We would absolutely recommend Contax Partners for consulting support where a company does not have the required knowledge. This is the space in which there is clear value add from procuring Contax Partners’ services.
     
  • Shukri A. Aziz Al-Mahrous – Deputy CEO

    KNPC

    Contax Partners is a highly professional organisation, which supported KNPC to implement its mega project strategy, and helped our company to make good decisions, particularly in relation to the Clean Fuels Project. Contax has excellent insights about the regional projects market landscape and Contractor landscape, and has definitely added value to us over the years.
