Offshore survey company Fugro Chance Inc. has appointed Blaine Thibodeaux to president. His responsibilities include Fugro’s Gulf of Mexico and Arctic offshore operations, including marine positioning, offshore construction and subsea projects, and international services.
 
Having begun his career with Fugro’s IT group in 1996, Thibodeaux joined John Chance Land Surveys (a Fugro company) in 1997. As a Division Manager, he oversaw FLI-MAP, the airborne corridor mapping system, collecting thousands of miles of LiDAR data for federal and state agencies and the private sector.
 
In 2010, Thibodeaux returned to Fugro Chance as Vice President of Marine Operations and assumed the role of Chief Operating Officer in April 2014. He has a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and is a graduate of the Fugro Academy Executive/Leadership Development Program in the U.K. and the LSU Executive Development Program in Baton Rouge, La. He is also involved in community related activities and serves on the Board of Directors for the United Way of Acadiana.
 
Thibodeaux succeeds Glynn Rhinehart, who will retire this year after 19 years with Fugro.
