Proserv said on Wednesday that it had named Julie Thomson as its new group chief financial officer (CFO). She will be replacing Andy Cooksey who fulfilled the role of interim group CFO since last June.

In October 2019, Proserv completed a corporate realignment that saw the formation of two standalone divisions – Proserv Controls based at the firm’s Aberdeen head office, and Houston-based Gilmore.

Thomson’s arrival as group CFO marks the latest addition to Proserv’s senior leadership team, which sees David Currie as group chief executive officer (CEO), Davis Larssen as CEO of Proserv Controls, and David Nemetz as the president of Gilmore.

The company added that its finance teams, across both Proserv Controls and Gilmore, will have a functional reporting line to Thomson, who will work from the firm’s Aberdeen headquarters.

Proserv CEO David Currie said: “Following our realignment in 2019, we conducted an extensive international search to secure the right candidate for this crucial role within our business, who will represent, not only the leader of our financial, legal and IT functions but the clear business partner for the future growth and advancement of our company.

“Julie meets the very high specification we set for this role and I am excited someone of her proven experience and caliber is joining our leadership team.”

Thomson has more than 20 years of experience in the energy industry, many of which have been spent at Weatherford International, where her most recent role was that of finance director for the Europe-Africa region.

Regarding her appointment, Thomson stated: “Proserv has an experienced and talented management team and I am delighted to be joining the firm at this exciting time. I look forward to building on the significant progress that has already been made positioning Proserv for profitable and sustainable growth, and positively contributing to the company’s strategic priorities.”

Currie added: “As we welcome Julie to the Proserv executive team, we would like to thank Andy Cooksey for his role in supporting Proserv through the transformation process in 2019 and for providing leadership and support to the business globally. We wish him every success for the future.”
