Merrick, a provider of production management and accounting solutions to the upstream oil and gas industry, has named Scott Raphael as its new CEO.
Raphael previously served as the production and economics portfolio manager at Schlumberger Information Solutions. He spent 16 years in Schlumberger predominantly in areas of business development, operations, sales, and product management.
“He has a strong track record in the world of oil and software, and his impressive experience and background will bring continuity to Merrick’s growth strategy and plans to serve new and existing customers’ needs as they grow and expand,” Ola Saetre, chairman of the Merrick board, said in a statement.
In October, Merrick announced the departure of Kemal Farid, Merrick’s co-founder. Farid left his role as president and CEO after serving 16 years with the company. He continues to serve as member of the Merrick board. Samina Farid, co-founder, executive vice president, and COO, served as interim CEO in the interim.
