LONDON, UK: BP appointed Lamar McKay as Chief Executive, Upstream. He will take up the position with effect from 1 January 2013. In his new role, McKay will lead BP’s combined Upstream business, comprising the Exploration, Developments and Production divisions together with the Upstream strategy and integration team. He is currently Chairman and President of BP America.

The Upstream functional divisions are currently reported directly to Bob Dudley, Group Chief Executive, BP. Their current structure and management teams will remain unaffected by this change in segment leadership. McKay will report to Bob Dudley and is already a member of BP’s executive management team.

“Lamar is an outstanding leader, with a proven record of strong operational effectiveness and strategic success. His leadership of BP America over the past three years has been exemplary, during a most difficult period for our company. His long and deep experience in the upstream, and of the US and Russia, will be invaluable as we deliver our Upstream strategy worldwide,” said Bob Dudley.
