Ezra Names Global Executives

press release
Wednesday, January 04, 2012

Ezra promotes key executives to anchor Group’s global strategy. They are as follows:

 

 

  • Captain Adarash Kumar steps up as Group COO to spearhead Ezra’s expanding global operations
  • Robin Kirkpatrick, EMAS Marine’s new CEO, will lead Ezra’s offshore support services division

 

Both industry veterans have assumed their new roles from 1 January 2012. Industry veteran Captain Adarash Kumar will become Chief Operating Officer (COO) at the Group level to spearhead Ezra‟s burgeoning international operations. He has been with the Group since its listing on the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited in 2003, forming part of the core team that has worked to transform Ezra to a leading provider of offshore O&G support services globally that it is today. Captain Kumar, 51, has served in the marine industry for more than 25 years and has been an executive director of Ezra since 24 March 2003.


Taking over the helm from Captain Kumar as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of EMAS Marine, the Group‟s offshore support services division, is Robin Kirkpatrick. Mr Kirkpatrick, 52, will steer the division as it moves to fulfil its growth targets and further strengthen Ezra‟s operating brand „EMAS‟ in the market. Since joining the Group in April 2007, Mr Kirkpatrick has played a significant role in expanding its geographical reach. A mariner with 20 years of experience under his belt, he was appointed COO of EMAS Marine in December 2007.
 

Since completing the acquisition of Aker Marine Contractors AS in March 2011, the Group has seen its orderbook grow rapidly. As at October 2011, the Group orderbook exceeded US$1.2 billion, US$745 million of which was attributable to its subsea construction division, which includes a subsea installation contract in the Gulf of Mexico awarded by BP Exploration & Production, Inc. Ezra also recently broke into the South American market, having announced in November 2011 a further US$231 million in charter awards for deployment of its offshore support vessels in South America and the Asia Pacific.
Both Captain Kumar and Mr Kirkpatrick have assumed their new roles with effect from 1 January 2012.
