TechnipFMC, a global leader in subsea, onshore/offshore projects with a major presence in the Middle East, has appointed Arnaud Pieton as the new President and CEO-elect for its vital subsidiary - Technip Energies, effective immediately.
In another key development, the company has elevated Jonathan Landes to the role of President, Subsea.
TechnipFMC said these appointments follow the resignation of Catherine MacGregor, who will be leaving the company to work for a company client, Engie.
An industry veteran, Pieton has been with the company since 2004 and held multiple leadership positions across TechnipFMC including that of Vice President, Projects. He most recently served as the Company’s President, Subsea since 2018.
Prior to this, he was Executive Vice President, People & Culture, as well as President, Asia Pacific Region, where he was responsible for the Onshore/Offshore business (now Technip Energies).
Landes, who has 25 years of experience in the energy sector, most recently served as the company’s Senior VP (Subsea), where he had global responsibility for all commercial strategy, and front-end engineering activities.
He played a critical role in the successful introduction of the company’s integrated business model – iEPCITM – and new technologies, including Subsea 2.0TM. Throughout his career, he has held roles in project management, operations, sales and marketing, technology and services.
Lauding the appointments, Chairman and CEO Doug Pferdehirt said: "Arnaud has extensive operational experience in EPC and subsea, and has made significant contributions as a member of TechnipFMC’s executive team. I am confident in his ability to continue to drive the excellent project performance and strategy of Technip Energies."
Landes, he stated, has held both operational and commercial roles in Subsea and is a natural successor to Arnaud.
"His commitment to client success, through close and long-standing relationships, will continue to drive change in the industry and ensure our continued leadership," he said.
“Finally, I would like to thank MacGregor for her many contributions, including her leadership of Technip Energies. I wish her all the best and look forward to working with her as a client,” he added.
