Neptune Energy, the independent global E&P company, said it has made two key senior appointments based in London.
Gro Gunleiksrud Haatvedt (pictured left) is joining Neptune as vice president and group head of exploration. Haatvedt joins Neptune from Aker BP ASA where she has been senior vice president for exploration for the last four years. Previously, she was senior vice president for the Norwegian Shelf at Equinor. During her career within Equinor, Gro was responsible for business development in the Middle East and was country manager for Libya. In 2016, Gro was the first woman to be awarded the prestigious Group Petroleum Medal from the British Geological Society.
Meanwhile, Amanda Chilcott (pictured right) will take up the position of group human resources director. Amanda joins Neptune from Aggreko Plc where she was human resources director of the Power Solutions division. Amanda brings more than twenty years of international HR experience gained at BP and Ford, both organisations that are recognised for their HR management and talent development.
Jim House, chief executive officer of Neptune Energy Group, said: “It is with great pleasure that I announce these appointments. Gro and Amanda have exceptional track records in their fields and each will play a major role in our plan to become a leading independent international E&P Company.”
