International logistics firm Peterson has announced the appointment of Sarah Moore as its new CEO.
Ms Moore, already an executive director, will replace the retiring Erwin Kooij in the chief executive’s role at the start of January.
She will continue to be based in Aberdeen after she takes up her new position.
With more than 10 years experience in the business, Ms Moore joined in 2009 and has held several senior posts, including innovation and projects director and most recently executive director.
According to Peterson, she brings considerable experience in energy logistics and internationalisation to the CEO’s role.
Ms Moore said: “It is an honour to succeed Erwin and lead Peterson Energy Logistics alongside a strong management team.
“Supply chain innovation will be critical to realise the energy transition for our industry. Our ambitious plans and firm partnerships with our clients will see new models drive this change, against a backdrop of unwavering focus on quality and safety.”
Mr Kooij joined Peterson in the early 1980s and was part of the formation of the southern north-sea pool, a pioneering collaboration model in the Netherlands, where operators outsource their combined marine and helicopter requirements to one logistics facilitator, Peterson.
The outgoing CEO said: “I am very pleased that, following a diligent and thorough selection process, Sarah Moore has been chosen as my successor.
“Sarah has made a significant contribution to the business over the past 12 years, firstly by playing a major role in the development of our Lighthouse technology suite, supporting the development of our portfolio businesses and latterly in establishing us in international locations, such as Qatar and Australia.
“With the energy industry going through a period of significant change, these are exciting times for Peterson Energy Logistics, and I am pleased that Sarah will lead the business forward from the start of next year.”
Peterson has bases across the world including in the Netherlands, Norway and Trinidad, as well as Aberdeen.
