Ex-TechnipFMC man becomes McDermott senior VP, general counsel and corporate secretary

Engineering and construction company McDermott has appointed John Freeman as the company’s new senior vice president, general counsel, and corporate secretary.

McDermott said on Monday that Freeman succeeded Liane Hinrichs who announced her intention to retire from the company at the end of the year.

According to the company, the appointment of Freeman to his new roles is effective immediately.

David Dickson, president and CEO of McDermott, said: “The company is grateful for Liane’s contributions to McDermott over the past 18 years, and her leadership of the company’s legal group. We extend our best wishes to Liane for the future.

“As McDermott continues to grow, John’s versatility and global experience in our industry will be of particular benefit to the company. I am looking forward to working closely with him.”

Freeman joins McDermott from TechnipFMC where he was most recently the special advisor to the integration of Technip and FMC.

Before the merger of Technip and FMC, Freeman was the corporate general counsel for Technip, based in Paris, where he had worldwide leadership responsibility for all legal and compliance matters for Technip.

Prior to joining Technip in 2009, Freeman was with Baker Hughes where he held different legal and compliance positions. His cumulative legal experience spans over 30 years, both in the private and public sector, the company concluded.
