Aberdeen-headquartered energy services firm Wood has appointed a new chief executive for its Americas business.

Stephanie Cox takes on the role following 28-years at Schlumberger, succeeding Andrew Stewart who has been appointed executive president of strategy and development for the global business.

She will be responsible for the firm’s $4bn (£3.1bn) asset solutions business which employs around 20,000 people across the US, Canada, Trinidad, Brazil, Mexico and Guyana.

Based in Houston, Texas, she will report directly to Wood chief executive Robin Watson.

She joins the firm following her role as president of Schlumberger’s North America land drilling business and previously held a series of senior leadership positions within the company.

Wood CEO Robin Watson said: “Following a planned and rigorous search process, we are delighted that Stephanie is joining Wood in what is a very prominent and important role in our global business.

“Stephanie has very impressive career credentials having held senior leadership positions in the US, France and Malaysia, growing diverse businesses and bringing technological advancement and continuous improvement to service delivery.

“I am personally pleased we have attracted someone of her calibre and track record.

“Stephanie’s leadership, vision and authenticity are ideally suited to Wood’s culture and I am very confident she will help further establish our Americas business and drive next level growth to position Wood as the premier partner in cleaner energy, sustainable infrastructure and built environments.

“I speak on behalf of Wood’s executive leadership team when I say we are looking forward to working with Stephanie to continue exceptional growth in our Americas business.”

Meanwhile Andrew Stewart will move to Melbourne, Australia in his new position following a four-year period in the Americas.

Both new roles are effective immediately.

On her appointment, Ms Cox said: “Wood is major player in all of its sectors and remains ambitious and progressive in its plans for the future.

“With an incredibly deep pool of talented employees, a strong customer base and visionary plans to meet the mega-trends of energy transition, digitalisation, urbanisation and future skills head on, it’s a very exciting move for me.

“I have been thoroughly impressed with the candour and inspiration I have seen in Wood’s executive leadership team and I am looking forward to leading the Americas business into the next stage of its strategic development.”
