The Crewing Company is setting up a new division at the Twofour54 media campus in the United Arab Emirates.

The Abu Dhabi arm of the company will provide opportunities for the talent currently on the Crewing Company’s books, but the long-term aim is to establish a talent pool across the Middle East and North Africa region.

“About a third of our business is on projects in the Middle East, so it makes sense for our first international office to be in the region,” said The Crewing Company joint managing director Stuart Hatton.
