The effective date for Mr Trowell’s appointments to CEO, President and the board of directors is expected to be 15 June 2014, and he will be based in Ensco’s London headquarters.

Mr Trowell joins Ensco following a distinguished career with Schlumberger. His leadership experience includes positions as President – Integrated Project Management (IPM), President – Schlumberger Production Management (SPM) and President – Schlumberger WesternGeco Ltd.

Mr Trowell has a PhD in earth sciences from the University of Cambridge, a BSc degree in geology from Imperial College London and an MBA from The Open University.

“We thank Dan for his many achievements over eight years as CEO, especially Ensco’s safety record and leading customer satisfaction scores. Dan led Ensco through a remarkably successful period in our history that included newbuild construction and a well-executed acquisition that gave us more advanced technological capabilities, a larger customer base and more extensive global operations,” Paul Rowsey, lead director of Ensco, said.

“I am honored to have been chosen to lead Ensco’s talented team of executives and employees, and my focus will be on fostering collaboration to fully harness our global resources.
