Expro, a UK-based provider of subsea equipment for the oil and gas industry, has appointed Mike Jardon as Chief Executive Officer, succeeding Charles Woodburn.
Jardon joined Expro in 2011 as Chief Operating Officer, after holding senior roles within Schlumberger’s wireline, completions, well testing and subsea businesses, and at Vallourec & Mannesmann, where he led the organisation’s commercial activities across North America.
Woodburn is leaving the company in April to join BAE Systems plc.
Commenting on this appointment, Expro’s Chairman, Sir George Buckley, said: “Mike has been instrumental in delivering the exceptional results we have seen from Expro in recent years. His experience, leadership skills and passion for the business will ensure a seamless transition for the company. The Board and Executive Management Team are delighted to see him succeed as CEO, as we focus on driving forward the business safely and efficiently.
“I would also like to thank Charles for his significant contribution and unwavering commitment to the business. His talent, honesty and integrity will be missed by everyone in Expro, and we wish him all the very best in his new role.
