Diamond Offshore names Marc Edwards president and CEO

Posted on 13 February 2014

Diamond Offshore Drilling has appointed Marc Edwards as president and CEO and as a member of the board of directors, effective 3 March. Mr Edwards succeeds Larry Dickerson, who announced his intent to retire in September 2013 after almost 30 years of continuous service to the company.

“We are very pleased to have a proven leader with Marc’s experience taking the helm at Diamond Offshore,” said James S. Tisch, chairman of the board of directors at Diamond Offshore. “Marc’s broad experience during his 30-year career at Halliburton will be invaluable for continuing Diamond Offshore’s operational excellence and charting the company’s future strategic course.”

“I am honored by the opportunity to lead Diamond Offshore,” said Mr Edwards. “Diamond has an unparalleled history of value creation and superior service.  I look forward to working with Diamond’s leadership team, employees and customers worldwide to expand on Diamond’s proud legacy.”

Prior to joining Diamond Offshore, Mr Edwards spent almost his entire career at Halliburton. Starting as a field engineer in Kuwait in 1984, his career took him across the globe with progressively greater management responsibilities; as a member of Halliburton’s executive committee, he most recently served as senior vice president, responsible for the Completion and Production Division, the largest of Halliburton’s two divisions.
