This has been a planned succession move with Jim’s desire to transition to an operating role. I am confident that he will be successful in leading our Drilling and Subsea segment.

“Pablo has been an integral part of Forum’s development, including our initial public offering and the completion of over twelve merger and acquisition transactions during his tenure. His leadership, experience, and excellent judgement will ensure a smooth transition into his new position as our chief financial officer. I have the highest level of confidence in his ability to create shareholder value and help drive profitable growth.”

Pablo joined Forum in 2011 as vice president, Corporate Development and has held positions with increasing responsibility.
