U.S.-based oil and gas services company Tetra Technologies has appointed a new president and chief operating officer (COO).
Tetra said on Monday that Brady M. Murphy was appointed to the positions, effective immediately. He will report to the company’s chief executive officer Stuart M. Brightman and succeeds him as president.
Brightman said: “Brady brings to Tetra the proven ability to execute growth and performance strategies, while always focusing on continuous improvement of operations, customer and employee relationships, profitability, and shareholder value. We believe his wealth of global energy services and executive experience will be valuable to increase our competitive position and our growth and development into the future.”
Murphy added: “I’m honored to join Stu and the Tetra team at this important time. I am excited to work with the Tetra leadership team to build upon our strong foundation and further leverage innovation and technology to achieve global excellence and strong financial performance.”
It is worth reminding that Tetra’s former COO, Joseph Elkhoury, resigned from the company for personal reasons in June 2017. Following Elkhoury’s departure, Brightman took over the responsibilities of the COO.
Murphy has more than 35 years of global operations, engineering, manufacturing and business development experience in a variety of areas within the energy industry, including deepwater, mature fields, and unconventional assets.
Most recently, he served as CEO of Paradigm Group, a private company based in The Netherlands that is focused on strategic technologies for the upstream energy industry. Before this role, he served as a part of Halliburton executive management team in the position of senior vice president of business development and marketing.
His previous executive positions at Halliburton included SVP of Europe/Sub-Saharan Africa region, VP of Sperry Drilling Services, VP of supply chain and management systems, VP of global manufacturing, and director of the product sales division.
