Cameron Elects Jack B. Moore as President & COO
Cameron's board of directors has elected Jack B. Moore as president and chief operating officer of the company, effective January 1, 2007. Moore currently serves as president of Cameron's Drilling & Production Systems (DPS) group, and is a senior vice president of Cameron. Sheldon R.

"Each of these gentlemen brings a combination of talents and experience that make them well-suited for their expanded roles," Erikson said. "Jack has the leadership skills and industry knowledge necessary to take on a larger role as operating head of the company, and I look forward to partnering with him more closely in our efforts to continue Cameron's solid operating and financial performance. In addition, John has done an outstanding job of managing the V&M group through a period of growth and expansion, and Jim brings a wide range of international experience to his new role overseeing what has now become a billion-dollar business in the V&M group." Erikson also said he will continue to be hands-on in his day-to-day role as CEO of the company.
