Transocean Execs Donate Bonuses to Deepwater Horizon Memorial Fund
Transocean's senior management team, led by Chief Executive Officer Steven Newman, announced that they are voluntarily donating the safety bonuses that were awarded to them for 2010 to the Deepwater Horizon Memorial Fund.
"The executive team made this decision because we believe it is the right thing to do," Newman said. "Nothing is more important to Transocean than our people, and it was never our intent to diminish the effect the Macondo tragedy has had on those who lost loved ones," Newman said. "We offer our most sincere apologies and we regret the impact this matter has had on the entire Transocean family."
The senior executives who will be donating their safety bonuses, in addition to Steven Newman, include Ricardo H. Rosa, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Arnaud A.Y. Bobillier, Executive Vice President, Asset and Performance, Eric Brown, Executive Vice President, Legal & Administration, and Ihab M. Toma, Executive Vice President, Global Business.
