Ensco plc, a UK drilling provider for petroleum industry, has named Paul Rowsey Non-Executive Chairman of the Board following Dan Rabun’s planned retirement on May 18, 2015.
Rowsey has been a member of Ensco’s Board of Directors since 2000, where he most recently served as Lead Director. The company says that he will remain Chairman of the Nominating and Governance Committee.
Paul Rowsey said: “I am honored to have been selected by the Board to serve in my new role as Non-Executive Chairman. We thank Dan for his dedicated leadership over many years and we wish him and his family the very best.”
Rabun served as Chairman following his retirement as President and CEO in 2014. He served on Ensco’s Board of Directors since 2006 and was appointed CEO and Chairman in 2007.
As Offshore Energy Today reported last week, Rabun has joined the Apache Corporation’s Board of Directors.
