Lloyd’s Register Energy has appointed Joanna Pohorski senior vice president, compliance services, for Lloyd’s Register’s Energy business, reporting directly to the energy director John Wishart.
In her new role Pohorski will take a lead on the compliance team’s strategic direction, expansion and technical operations.
At its core the compliance team of Lloyd’s Register Energy assesses the design, construction, and operation of offshore and onshore oil and gas facilities against engineering principles and a range of codes and standards, making sure that assets are safe and meet performance expectations set by the designer, operator or regulators. Pohorski will lead a global compliance team of over 400 staff.
Pohorski initially joined Lloyd’s Register in 2012 as the program manager for the floating offshore installations team, and a few months later she was appointed to the London-based VP projects role within the newly created compliance team.
Polish-born and a graduate of Leopold-Franzens University in Innsbruck, Pohorski has worked in financial and operational business improvement roles, focusing on the development and implementation of management systems driving performance and ownership in leading global energy organizations. She has worked for the international consulting group Hitachi Consulting (previously Celerant Consulting) working on projects with BP in Angola. Pohorski has also worked with major organizations in Continental Europe and the UK, such as ConocoPhillips, BG Group and Nexen.
Pohorski will be based in Lloyd’s Register Energy’s central London offices on Fenchurch Street.
