BP announced the appointment of Lamar McKay as Chief Executive, Upstream. He will take up the position with effect from January 1. In his new role, McKay will lead BPs combined Upstream business, comprising the Exploration, Developments and Production divisions together with the Upstream strategy and integration team. These Upstream functional divisions were formed in late 2010 in a major re-organisation of BPs Upstream segment designed to improve risk management and implementation of global standards. They currently report directly to BP Group Chief Executive Bob Dudley. Their current structure and management teams will remain unaffected by this change in segment leadership.
