Expro Promotes Jardon into CEO Role



UK-based well services firm Expro reported Monday that current COO Mike Jardon will succeed Charles Woodburn as chief executive officer. Woodburn will leave in April as he has been announced as the new boss of aviation and defense contractor BAE Systems.

Jardon joined Expro in 2011 as chief operating officer after having held senior roles within Schlumberger's wireline, completions, well testing and subsea businesses. He also led Vallourec & Mannesmann's commercial activities across North America.

Expro Chairman Sir George Buckley commented in a company statement:

"Mike has been instrumental in delivering the exceptional results we have seen from Expro in recent years. His experience, leadership skills and passion for the business will ensure a seamless transition for the company. The board and executive management team are delighted to see him succeed as CEO, as we focus on driving forward the business safely and efficiently.
 
"I would also like to thank Charles for his significant contribution and unwavering commitment to the business. His talent, honesty and integrity will be missed by everyone in Expro, and we wish him all the very best in his new role."
