Former Oil Search CEO Peter Botten has been appointed to the Karoon Energy board as a Non-Executive Director.
Mr Botten spent 26 years in the top job at Oil Search before being succeeded by Dr Keiran Wulff earlier this year.
Karoon Chairman Bruce Phillips said Mr Botten shares the company’s vision of building Karoon into a significant international entity.
“His appointment brings a great wealth of relevant experience covering technical, financial and commercial areas in significant ASX-listed resource companies.
“His cultural and strategic capabilities, involvement in complex international jurisdictions and broad ranging upstream experience makes him a strong addition to the Karoon board.”
Mr Botten said he looked forward to contributing the company’s “metamorphosis” and helping to deliver its growth strategy.
