Wood Group has announced changes to its Executive Leadership Team.  Andrew Stewart has been appointed chief executive officer (CEO) of the Asset Life Cycle Solutions (ALCS) business in the Western region and Michele McNichol has been appointed to the new role of executive president – integration, effective immediately.

Andrew Stewart succeeds Michele McNichol as CEO of ALCS in the Western region.  He was most recently president of the Construction, Maintenance & Operations (CMO) business, which provides a majority of the business activity in the region. He previously led Wood Group’s brownfield production services operations in Australia and Asia Pacific.

Following the announcement March 13 of Wood Group’s potential acquisition of Amec Foster Wheeler (AFW), Michele McNichol has been chosen to lead the global integration of that business. She was previously CEO of ALCS in the Western region and CEO of Wood Group Mustang.

Robin Watson, chief executive of Wood Group stated: “Since announcing the proposed acquisition of AFW, the largest Wood Group has undertaken, we have begun thinking about the structure of our business to best serve our customers.  Although the potential acquisition still requires regulatory and shareholder approval, there is already much work to be done in relation to integration planning. Michele’s insightful leadership and knowledge of the business will be key to a successful integration post-completion and to the future success of Wood Group. Andrew’s knowledge of Wood Group’s global business and best practices will help drive our strategy for ALCS across the Americas.”
