Wood Group Kenny (WGK) has appointed a North Sea regional director with 20 years of experience in the oil and gas industry as their new chief executive officer.
WGK’s new chief executive, Bob MacDonald, succeeds Steve Wayman who has now become the company’s new 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.
MacDonald joined WGK in 2003 after working in various subsea roles across Europe, the Middle East, and both North and South America.
Before becoming a regional director for the group in the North Sea in 2013, he held a number of positions at the company, and has joined the board of the recently formed Invest in Young People initiative with the Scottish Government.
He said: “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.
“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.”
