BP appoints Kate Thomson as interim CFO

Kate Thomson has been appointed interim CFO of bp, following the appointment of Murray Auchincloss as bp’s interim CEO.

Currently serving as Senior Vice President, Finance for Production and Operations, Thomson is responsible for the stewardship of and commercial partnering with the business globally.

Auchincloss said that Thomson’s experience and skills make her ideally suited to take on the role of interim CFO.

“She brings deep technical knowledge together with a detailed understanding of bp and has a first-class track record of leadership across our finance function. I look forward to working alongside her as we continue to deliver bp’s strategy.”

Thomson has been with bp for 19 years, holding a number of senior financial roles, including Group Treasurer and Head of Group Tax.

The restructure comes after the resignation of Bernard Looney, former CEO, who stepped down amid an ongoing investigation into allegations he had engaged in personal relationships with colleagues that were not disclosed to the board.
