Leading international oilfield service company Expro has appointed Charles Woodburn as Chief Executive Officer.

Woodburn is a UK national who was educated at Cambridge where he graduated with a PhD in Engineering. He joins Expro following a highly successful 15-year career with Schlumberger where he held many senior management roles including President of Wireline up to 2009. Latterly he was in charge of Schlumberger’s engineering and manufacturing, reporting directly to the Executive Vice President of Oilfield Services.

Charles has been appointed to Expro’s main Board and will spend his time between Aberdeen and Reading, but will travel extensively in support of Expro’s international strategy.

The appointment takes effect from September 1. From that date, Graeme Coutts will revert to the position of Chairman, a role he had occupied previously until February this year when he stepped back in as Chief Executive.

“We have taken a significant amount of time to look at the industry talent and I am delighted that we have been fortunate enough to recruit the very best without compromise,” said Graeme Coutts. “Expro has become a recognised leader in the provision of well flow management solutions to the global oil and gas industry. The appointment of Charles as CEO will bring dynamic and refreshing leadership as we continue to develop our business to meet the industry’s challenges.”
