Halliburton CFO Takes Weatherford CEO Chair

Oilfield services major Halliburton informed that its chief financial officer Mark McCollum is leaving the company effective immediately to become chief executive officer at Weatherford.

Halliburton executive vice president and general counsel, Robb L. Voyles, has been named interim CFO and will manage the CFO responsibilities in addition to his current responsibilities until a replacement is found.

Halliburton said it has engaged an executive search firm to conduct a comprehensive search for its next CFO. The Company also announced the promotion of Lyn Beaty to senior vice president of Finance effective immediately.

“We are pleased that Robb has agreed to serve as interim CFO during this important time and believe Lyn’s well-deserved promotion will provide additional leadership to the Finance organization and ensure a seamless transition as we secure a new CFO,” said Dave Lesar, chairman and CEO. “On behalf of the Halliburton Board of Directors and our management team, we thank Mark for his financial leadership and contributions to Halliburton. We built a strong team under Mark that will continue driving our financial functions.”

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
