BP appoints Murray Auchincloss as its permanent chief executive

BP has appointed Murray Auchincloss as its chief executive following his tenure in the role on an interim basis since September.

The company said the move is the result of a “robust and competitive” search process over the past four months.

Helge Lund, chair of BP said: “Since September, BP’s board has undertaken a thorough and highly competitive process to identify BP’s next CEO, considering a number of high-calibre candidates in detail. The board is in complete agreement that Murray was the outstanding candidate and is the right leader for BP.

“Many already know Murray well, and few know BP better than he does. His assured leadership, focus on performance and delivery, and deep understanding of the opportunities and challenges in the energy transition will serve BP well as we continue our disciplined transformation to an integrated energy company.”

Before becoming interim chief executive, Auchincloss had been working as the company’s chief financial officer since July 2020, at which time he also joined BP’s board.

He had previously served as chief financial officer, deputy chief financial officer and head of business development for BP’s Upstream segment.

In September last year, BP appointed former Lidl UK marketing director Claire Farrant as VP of marketing for its mobility and convenience retail business in Europe.

The move formed part of BP’s wider investment in its convenience retail proposition, which also included the hiring of Joanne Hall from Sainsbury’s as UK retail operations director and Teresa Lindley from Waitrose as UK trading director.
