The oil-to-renewables Wood Group has appointed Alan Johnstone as president of its Asset Life Cycle Solutions business in Europe.

Joining Aberdeen-based Wood Group from his position as Amec Foster Wheeler’s managing director for upstream asset solutions, Jonstone brings almost three decades of North Sea, Southern North Sea and Caspian oil & gas experience.

A long-standing member of Step Change in Safety’s leadership team and former co-chair of the organisation’s asset integrity steering group, he is a former chairman of the Offshore Contractors’ Association until August, 2016 –  a position he held for three years.

Johnstone said: “”One of Wood Group’s clear differentiators is its proven success working in partnership with customers and supply chain to streamline operations and maximize productivity across the asset life cycle. I look forward to leading the team in Europe with a strong focus on seeking new opportunities for us to extend and enhance how we support our clients.”
