BP Names New Safety, Operational Risk EVP

BP announced Tuesday it has named Bob Fryar as executive vice-president for Safety and Operational Risk (S&OR), reporting directly to Bob Dudley, group chief executive.

Fryar, who is currently executive vice president for production in BP’s upstream business will take up his new position from Feb. 15.

The appointment follows the decision of Mark Bly, who has headed BP’s safety functions since March 2008, to retire from BP in the summer.

"Mark has played a key role in advancing BP’s safety agenda, ensuring that we are heading towards industry-leading safety performance and processes, and helping to drive safe, reliable and compliant operations across BP’s operating businesses.

"I thank him wholeheartedly for his tremendous efforts,” said Dudley. “And Bob Fryar’s deep technical expertise, profound knowledge of our operations and commitment to our values will serve him well in his new role on my executive team."
