Executive Changes as bp Simplifies Organisational Structure



(18/04/24)
 
As bp simplifies its organisational structure,
the company will continue to have three businesses – production &
operations, gas & low carbon energy and customers & products –
enabled by trading & shipping.

The current regions, corporates & solutions
organisation will be integrated into the businesses and functions,
and bp will now be supported by five functions: finance;
technology; strategy, sustainability & ventures; people & culture;
and legal.

Together, the changes are expected to reduce
duplication and reporting line complexity.

Bp’s executive leadership team will also reduce in
size to ten members, whilst bp’s financial reporting structure
remains unchanged.

William Lin, who previously led regions,
corporates & solutions, will now lead the gas & low carbon energy
business, succeeding Anja-Isabel Dotzenrath who is retiring from
bp and her executive career.

William is already a member of bp’s leadership
team in his current role as executive vice president for regions,
corporates & solutions. For the past four years, he has led RC&S
as a key integrator of bp’s global activities with customers,
partners, and governments.  William has worked in bp for 28 years,
holding senior management roles across the world including in Asia
Pacific, Egypt and the US, and as head of bp’s group chief
executive office and as chief operating officer in the former
Upstream responsible for all oil and gas regions across the
portfolio.

Emeka Emembolu will head bp’s technology function,
taking over from Leigh-Ann Russell who is leaving bp for an
external opportunity.

Emeka has worked as chief of staff for the past
two years. In this role he has run the CEO office and provided
direct support and advice to the bp leadership team. Emeka has
been with bp for 25 years, starting his career working offshore as
an engineer. Before joining the executive office, he ran bp’s
business in the North Sea. Prior to that, he held a range of
senior technical leadership roles in the Gulf of Mexico/Canada,
North Africa and Alaska businesses and in bp’s subsurface
function.

 “As I set out in February, bp’s destination
from IOC to IEC is unchanged – and we need to deliver as a
simpler, more focused and higher value company. These changes will
help us do just that, reducing complexity within bp, allowing our
team to focus on delivering our priorities and growing the value
of bp,” said Murray Auchincloss, bp’s CEO. “I congratulate William
on his new role and am delighted to welcome Emeka to the
leadership team. William brings extensive experience, expertise,
and leadership to gas & low carbon energy – a key part of our
portfolio. He has a proven track record of delivery, managing
complex relationships and deals – effectively leading teams to
build resilient businesses. Emeka has been chief of staff for the
past two years and in a 25-year bp career has held senior
technical roles right across the business, always focused on
safety, value growth, people and technology.”

Regional teams will report to their most relevant
businesses. The Latin America team, formerly part of RC&S, will
now report to P&O. The bp America and China teams, formerly part
of RC&S, will now report to G&LCE, as will bp’s strategic
corporates and partnerships team and central non-operated joint
ventures team. The UK and Europe teams, formerly part of RC&S,
will now report to C&P. Other teams from RC&S will report into
relevant functions.

“I would of course also like to thank Anja and
Leigh-Ann,” added Auchincloss. “Anja has made a hugely positive
and lasting impact, building a world class team and low carbon
business platform and leading and implementing the right low
carbon strategy for bp for the long term. Leigh-Ann has ensured bp
kept aware of both the opportunities and risks presented by
today’s fast-developing technologies. Her leadership, commitment
to building diverse teams, and care for people are deeply
appreciated throughout bp. I wish them both all the very best for
the future.”

CEO, Murray Auchincloss
CFO, Kate Thomson
EVP Production and operations, Gordon Birrell
EVP Gas & low
carbon energy, William Lin
