New CEO for Wood Americas

Wood has appointed Stephanie Cox as CEO of its Americas business, succeeding Andrew Stewart who has been appointed executive president of strategy and development for the global business.

Responsible for the firm’s $4 billion, asset solutions business which employs around 20,000 people working across the U.S., Canada, Trinidad, Brazil, Mexico and Guyana, Stephanie will be based in Houston, TX and report directly to Wood’s chief executive, Robin Watson.

Cox joins Wood from her role as president of Schlumberger’s North America land drilling business. Prior to this she was vice president of Human Resources (HR) for Schlumberger and held various other senior leadership positions for the company, including president of North America, president of Asia, and GeoMarket manager for the Gulf of Mexico.

Commenting on her new role, Stephanie Cox, said:

Wood is major player in all of its sectors and remains ambitious and progressive in its plans for the future. With an incredibly deep pool of talented employees, a strong customer base and visionary plans to meet the mega-trends of energy transition, digitalization, urbanization and future skills head on, it’s a very exciting move for me. I have been thoroughly impressed with the candour and inspiration I have seen in Wood’s executive leadership team and I am looking forward to leading the Americas business into the next stage of its strategic development.”

Andrew Stewart is moving into the role of executive president of S&D for Wood, following a near four-year period in the Americas. He will be based in Melbourne, Australia and will remain on Wood’s executive leadership team.
