After 37 years with Schlumberger, I retire from a worldwide position responsible for placing Schlumberger equipment packages on new build and existing offshore drilling rigs around the world using contacts and relationships developed over the last 20 years while assigned to the offshore drilling contractors worldwide.

Win rate for equipment placements was >50% through the most recent offshore rig build cycle, helping position SLB as the largest offshore cementing company by footprint worldwide. Achieved through working with a motivated team, industry relationships, innovative equipment strategies, and bold commercial ‘deals’.
