Effective 1 January 2016, Robin Watson will succeed Bob Keiller as chief executive officer (CEO) of Wood Group. Keiller has decided to retire from Wood Group on 31 December 2015. Watson has served on the board since 2013, initially as CEO of Wood Group PSN and, since April 2015, as group chief operating officer. His appointment represents a natural evolution in the group’s leadership.
“[Watson] has been with the group since 2010, has more than 25 years’ oil and gas industry experience and his appointment provides important continuity for our people and customers,” said Ian Marchant, chairman, Wood Group.
“I am delighted and honored to have the opportunity to lead Wood Group in the next stage of its development,” said Watson. “I look forward to leading the team as we develop and execute our strategy to support our global customer base as we continue developing innovative and cost efficient solutions.”
