Wood Appoints Chief Technology Officer
Wood announced Tuesday that it has appointed Darren Martin as its chief technology officer, a newly created role within the company.
Described as a digital and technology thought leader, Martin previously led a range of strategic growth initiatives at an independent end-to-end IT services and solution company.
“Digital leadership is key to Wood’s strategy. The fourth industrial revolution is disrupting global markets and we intend to be a key player in the technological innovation critical to addressing energy transition,” Wood Chief Executive Robin Watson said in a company statement.
“We will continue to evolve to ensure our innovative capability extends across a range of end markets, within and beyond energy,” he added.
Darren Martin said it was an “exciting time” to join Wood.
“I am delighted to be given the opportunity to progress our digital footprint and accelerate the digital transformation of our services,” Martin said in a company statement.
“Our world is changing faster than ever. Everything around us is becoming smarter and more digitally connected; cars, factories, ports, mines, refineries, roads, office buildings, and even entire cities will be wired together in new ways and this will fundamentally change how Wood does business in the future,” he added.
