Ex-Halliburton man takes over as Diamond Offshore boss

Diamond Offshore has appointed Marc Edwards as its president, Chief Executive Officer and as a member of the Board of Directors, effective March 3, 2014.

Mark Edwards succeeds Lawrence Dickerson, who announced his intent to retire in September 2013 after almost 30 years of continuous service to the Company.

James S. Tisch, Chairman of the Diamond Offshore Board of Directors, said: “Marc’s broad experience during his 30 year career at Halliburton will be invaluable for continuing Diamond Offshore’s operational excellence and charting the Company’s future strategic course.”

“Diamond has an unparalleled history of value creation and superior service. I look forward to working with Diamond’s leadership team, employees and customers worldwide to expand on Diamond’s proud legacy,” said Edwards

Prior to joining Diamond Offshore, Edwards spent almost his entire career at Halliburton Company, one of the world’s largest and most diversified oil field services companies. Starting as a field engineer in Kuwait in 1984, his career took him across the globe with progressively greater management responsibilities; as a member of Halliburton’s Executive Committee, he most recently served as Senior Vice President, responsible for the Completion and Production Division, the largest of Halliburton’s two Divisions.
