Pat Fal­lon has stepped down as the chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer (COO) of Uae-based rental com­pany Byrne Equip­ment Rental af­ter 26 years with the com­pany.

Fal­lon said:“i will re­flect on my time at Byrne with tremen­dous pride on what we achieved, along with my sin­cere thanks and re­spect to its team of peo­ple across the re­gion who I was priv­i­leged to work with on the jour­ney to de­liver its en­vi­able growth and suc­cess. I hope to see that jour­ney con­tinue in the same vein and I wish ev­ery­one at the Byrne Group the very best go­ing for­ward.”

Fal­lon started with Byrne in a busi­ness de­vel­op­ment role, be­fore pro­gress­ing to a po­si­tion in gen­eral man­age­ment and ul­ti­mately be­com­ing the Group COO in 2008. Over that time, he has ex­panded the com­pany’s prod­uct of­fer­ing and seen the busi­ness de­velop along­side the mar­ket as it has ma­tured.

He has man­aged Byrne’s ge­o­graph­i­cal ex­pan­sion in the GCC (Gulf Co­op­er­a­tion Coun­cil) coun­tries from its UAE base, firstly into Qatar and later into Saudi Ara­bia and Bahrain, and most re­cently into Oman and Kuwait.

Al­though no sin­gle suc­ces­sor to Fal­lon has been named, Ha­mad Al Su­laiman, Chair­man and CEO of the group, said: Pat, as a friend and a pil­lar of Byrne, will be missed by all of us, and his pre­vi­ous re­spon­si­bil­i­ties will be spread to other mem­bers of se­nior man­age­ment in a way that will re­flect am­i­ca­ble con­ti­nu­ity of the ex­cel­lent job he was do­ing.”
