Equinor proposes two new board members

Equinor’s nomination committee has recommended that the company’s corporate assembly elects Anne Drinkwater and Jonathan Lewis as new members to its board of directors.

Furthermore, the nomination committee recommends a re-election of Jon Erik Reinhardsen as chair and Roy Franklin as deputy chair of the board, in addition to Jeroen van der Veer, Wenche Agerup, Bjørn Tore Godal and Rebekka Glasser Herlofsen as shareholder-elected members of the board of directors, Equinor said on Tuesday.

The election to Equinor’s board of directors takes place in the company’s corporate assembly meeting Tuesday, June 5, 2018. It is proposed that the election enters into effect from July 1, 2018 and is effective until the ordinary election of shareholder-elected members to the board of directors in 2019.

Anne Drinkwater was employed with BP in the period 1978 to 2012, holding a number of different leadership positions in the company. In the period 2009 to 2012 she was chief executive officer of BP Canada.

The company noted that, through her career, Drinkwater has acquired a deep understanding of the oil and gas sector, holding both technical roles, and more distinct business responsibilities.

In recent years she has served on the board of Tullow Oil in England and Aker Solutions in Norway. She has now stepped out of these boards. Through her role as managing director of BP Norway and board position at Aker Solutions she has acquired a good understanding of the Norwegian oil and gas sector, Equinor noted.

Jonathan Lewis joined as Chief Executive Officer to Capita in December 2017; having previously spent 30 years working for large multi-national companies in technology-enabled industries. Lewis came to Capita from Amec Foster Wheeler, a global consulting, engineering and construction company, where he was CEO from 2016-2017.

Prior to this, he held a number of senior leadership positions at Halliburton, where he was employed in the period 1996 to 2016.

Lewis has previously held several directorships within technology and the oil and gas industry and has an existing board membership with Heriot-Watt University, Industrial Advisory Board.
