Gulf Keystone Appoints New Chief Strategy Officer

Gulf Keystone Petroleum announced late Sunday that it has appointed Nadhim Zahawi as its chief strategy officer.

Zahawi has held a number of advisory roles in the oil and gas sector and is the co-founder and former CEO of international market research firm YouGov. He has been a conservative member of parliament for Stratford-on-Avon in the UK since 2010 and, given his parliamentary commitments, will work with Gulf Keystone on a part-time basis.

Gulf Keystone CEO Jon Ferrier commented in a company statement:

"I am delighted to have secured the services of Nadhim at this important time in Gulf Keystone’s development. He will be a key part of the management team, alongside Sami Zouari, Tony Peart and John Stafford. With his Kurdish heritage and as a successful businessman, Nadhim brings a range of additional and critical skills to the company. I firmly believe that the breadth and depth of his regional knowledge will prove invaluable, and will help further strengthen our relationships within the Kurdistan Regional Government amongst other key stakeholders in the Kurdistan Region and internationally. On behalf of everyone at Gulf Keystone, I extend a warm welcome to Nadhim and look forward to his contribution."
