Energy Institute CEO Kingham to replace Mather as BP’s UK country head

Energy Institute CEO
Louise Kingham

The Energy Institute’s long-serving chief executive, Louise Kingham, will join BP as the oil giant’s UK head of country and senior vice president for Europe.

Louise Kingham, who has led the Energy Institute (EI) and its precursors for more than 20 years, will succeed Peter Mather in the role.

EI announced last month that Ms Kingham would be departing for BP, but didn’t say which position she would be filling.

She will join BP in May and report to William Lin, executive vice president regions, cities and solutions.

She said: “This is a pivotal time for the energy industry and I’m thrilled to join a progressive company with a clear net zero ambition.

“I’m excited to represent BP’s businesses, and work with partners across Europe and in the UK to help deliver innovative and decarbonized energy solutions at scale.’’

Mr Mather has been UK head of country and regional president for Europe since 2010.

Though he is leaving BP at the end of the year, Mr Mather will continue in his non-executive role as chair of the BP Europe Supervisory Board.

Mr Lin said: “We’re immensely grateful for Peter’s unwavering commitment to BP over his career.

“We will miss not only his sound counsel but his ability to represent the company and skilfully manage a broad set of relationships across the UK and continental Europe.”

On Ms Kingham’s appointment, Mr Lin said: “We are very fortunate to have such a qualified successor to Peter in this key role.

“Louise’s experience in public policy, issues management and stakeholder engagement, not to mention her extraordinary network, position her ideally to help advance bp’s transformation agenda.’’
