Encana has appointed Doug Suttles as its president and CEO and a director of the Calgary-based company.
Doug Suttles is a seasoned executive, with 30 years of oil and gas leadership experience. He has led oil and gas businesses in numerous countries and consistently delivered strong results. Most recently, Doug has served as Chief Operating Officer, BP Exploration & Production. He is a mechanical engineer and a 2008 recipient of the University of Texas Mechanical Engineering Distinguished Alumni Award.
Randall D. Eresman, the company’s previous president and CEO, retired from the company in January after nearly 35 years with the company and its predecessor, Alberta Energy Co. Ltd.
Clayton Woitas, an Encana director, took over as interim president and CEO while the company conducted its search for Eresman’s successor.
"After an extensive global search, Doug stood out as the ideal candidate to lead Encana into its next phase of growth and development," said Woitas, who remains as a director of the company and is the designated future chairman of the board.
