Piers Johnson, Managing Director of OPC said, “It has been an interesting 25 years with both great moments and troubled times. I am proud of the business that we have grown and it would not have been possible without our clients, consultants and staff so I was delighted to be able to celebrate with so many contacts, old colleagues and friends. I’m pleased to say that OPC continues to grow – this year alone we have opened offices in Astana, Stavanger and Basra, and I look forward to celebrating the 50 years anniversary in 2038!”
