Prior to his appointment as Chief Executive, Chris was responsible for BG Advance, including BG Group’s exploration team, the Group’s major capital projects program, contracts and procurement, and technology.

Ellis Armstrong joined BP in 1983, and has had an extensive career in offshore operational roles, commercial and planning roles, and leadership functions, ending his career with BP as CFO of Exploration and Production.
