JEDCO was founded by Darren McLean, a former Director and Senior Leader at global workforce solutions company Airswift (formerly Air Energi), operating across the energy, process and infrastructure markets.

Darren began his career in 1999 with NES in Scotland. In 2001 he joined Brunel in Glasgow. After one year Darren was promoted into an Account Management role tasked with expanding Brunel’s business across the onshore and offshore construction markets in South East Asia. At that time he was relocated to Singapore and it was here that his Far Eastern journey began.

After a successful couple of years, Darren had the opportunity to join Air Energi in 2004, who at that time were relatively new to the Asia market. The 13 years that followed he held senior roles across the region, based at several strategic locations including Malaysia, South Korea and Singapore, playing an instrumental role in Air Energi’s exponential growth in revenues, territory expansion and market share across the energy sectors in Asia Pacific and surrounding regions.

It was during the three years following the 2014 market shift, Darren closely monitored how his customers, partners and consultants and their associated projects were being impacted. A common theme was an ever increasing demand for a solution based alternative to how businesses engage with subject matter experts, as well as with one another.

Leveraging his background and experience, complemented with an extensive network of partner companies and technical consultants, all aligned to his vision and mission, Darren is confident the time is right and proud to introduce the JEDCO model to the market.
