Lamprell picks ex-Petrofac man as new CEO

Lamprell, a UAE-based provider of fabrication, engineering and contracting services to the oil & gas industry, has appointed Christopher McDonald as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and director.

Lamprell said on Wednesday that McDonald will be succeeding Jim Moffat who will be retiring from the company. The company added that the changes will become effective on October 1.

Lamprell announced Moffat’s decision to retire back in August 2015. The retirement was supposed to become effective on June 30, 2016 but Moffat agreed to extend his role while the search process to find a new CEO continued.

Before his appointment, McDonald held the position of Executive Vice-President and Group Head of Business Development with Petrofac based in the UAE where he had overall accountability for global sales for the company.

According to Lamprell, McDonald has extensive international experience in the EPC and oilfield services sectors having worked and lived in the USA, Asia, Australia, Europe and the Middle East.

Before Petrofac, he was employed at Halliburton/KBR for 18 years during which time he served on the board of MW Kellogg and led KBR’s worldwide lump-sum EPC sales and marketing activities.

Lamprell ended by saying that McDonald will join the company on September 13 and transition into the CEO role effective October 1. Moffat will take up his part-time consultancy role from mid-November until March 31, 2017, and will stand down from his director role on September 30.
