Maersk Drilling has appointed Christine Morris as chief financial officer (CFO) and member of the executive management team, effective 5 January 2021
The appointment follows the decision by current CFO Jesper Ridder Olsen, announced on 31 July 2020, to pursue another opportunity outside Maersk Drilling.
With some 25 years’ experience in finance, Ms Morris has served as executive vice president and CFO of US-based hydraulic fracturing and cementing services provider BJ Services since December 2019.
Ms Morris also served with Halliburton in executive finance positions for seven years.
Mr Olsen will remain at Maersk Drilling until the end of January 2021 to ensure a smooth handover process.
