Sensornet Names New International VPs, Promotion to COO

Sensornet has announced two senior appointments and a promotion as it continues to expand its international network.

John Perrin joins as VP for North and South America, while Doug Walker has taken up a similar position with the Company’s Asia-Pacific region. Richard Kluth, who has been with the Company for five years, has been promoted to Chief Operating Officer having previously served as Operations Director.

John has more than ten years industry experience specialising in wireline oilwell logging in both open and cased hole environments. He joins Sensornet from an international oil services company where he worked as a petrophysicist in Canada.

With more than 20 years sector experience, Doug has held senior management positions in Abu Dhabi, Norway, Gulf of Mexico and Vietnam with a global energy services business. While he originally specialized as a wireline field engineer, his most recent position saw him in the role of district manager for India and Bangladesh.

Since joining Sensornet in 2003, Richard has been responsible for a number of the company’s key developments, including the installation of the world's first fibre optic inwell Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) system. He has a wealth of experience in the fields of drilling and reservoir monitoring and has worked in North America, Middle East and Europe.

Sensornet CEO, Neale Carter, said, "The appointments of John and Doug will allow us to capitalize on buoyant sector conditions and high levels of exploration and production in the Americas and Asia-Pacific.

"Their dedication to pushing the boundaries of oil and gas technology makes them ideal members of the Sensornet team and the commitment they show to customer service is inline with our core values. Both have the experience and technical knowledge to lead our operations in their respective growth areas and I am confident they will be a great success.

"Richard is an invaluable member of the team and his tenure as operations director was highly successful and his promotion is well deserved. I am sure he will meet and exceed the challenges that lie ahead and I wish him all the best in his new role."
