Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/2/2015, Location: Europe

Wood Group Kenny (WGK) has appointed Bob MacDonald as chief executive officer (CEO), effective 6 April. Bob moves into the role from his position as WGK regional director for the North Sea.

Bob succeeds Steve Wayman who now becomes Wood Group’s head of strategy and development. He is replacing Ali Green who will step down from his current role but will continue to provide support to the team as he transitions out of the business in 2015.

With more than 20 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry, Bob joined WGK in 2003 having previously worked in various subsea sector roles across Europe, the Middle East, and North and South America. Bob has held a number of positions in WGK, including operations director before becoming regional director for the North Sea in 2013.

Bob is on the board of the newly formed Scottish Government ‘Invest in Young People’ initiative, as well as the Oil & Gas UK work group for ‘Cost Efficiency, Standardisation & Simplification’. He is also actively involved with Subsea UK, the Society of Underwater Technology and Scottish Enterprise, acting as a mentor for small business owners.

As CEO, Bob will lead the WGK executive team in the growth and governance of the business. He will take his place on the Wood Group Executive Committee, reporting to Robin Watson who will take up his new position of chief operating officer of Wood Group in April.

“Taking the helm at Wood Group Kenny is an honour and I look forward to working with the strong team here to build on the success Steve has achieved,” said Bob. “My focus will be on expanding our activities, continuing the high level of service delivery and supporting our customers through sustainable efficiencies in what is currently a highly competitive market. Wood Group Kenny has the right people and is well positioned globally to add real value to clients in these challenging times.”

Steve Wayman said: “Bob’s wealth of experience in our industry, together with his in-depth knowledge of our company, people and capabilities, makes him the ideal candidate to lead Wood Group Kenny for the future and I’m certain that the business will go from strength to strength under his direction.”
