Ex-Siemens man joins Deep Down as new COO

Houston-based oilfield services company Deep Down has appointed a new chief operating officer (COO) of the company.

Deep Down said on Tuesday that it had appointed Micah Simmons as its new COO.

The appointment is part of a broader management realignment effort initiated last month, which included the appointment of the company’s CFO Charles Njuguna to serve as CEO.

Simmons was most recently the VP of project management for global operations in Siemens Oil and Gas, based in Houston. He led the global project organization, with responsibility for project strategy, execution, processes, and governance across ten factories.

While at Siemens, he was charged with building the project management organization to improve customer satisfaction and project results across legacy Siemens & Dresser-Rand factories.

Before joining Siemens, Simmons spent 20 years with TechnipFMC most recently as a VP of Global Supply and led teams in Malaysia, Norway, and Houston, including those focused on subsea manifolds and pipeline systems.

Charles Njuguna, Deep Down CEO, said: “Having completed several key initiatives over the past few months to finetune Deep Down’s board and senior leadership, our remaining goal was to recruit a seasoned oil and gas industry operational executive to serve as COO.

“Micah Simmons met all of our primary objectives and much more, given his deep and relevant industry experience, proven track record in delivering improved operational efficiency and financial performance, and his strong interest in Deep Down’s long term business potential.”
