In recognition of her career and industry contributions, Julie Robertson, Noble Corp executive vice president and corporate secretary, was named the 2013 IADC Contractor of the Year last Friday at the 2013 IADC Annual General Meeting in San Antonio, Texas. “I am incredibly honored to receive this award. My career has been a result of the support I have received from my fellow Noble employees. Therefore, this is truly an award for Noble and the more than 8,000 employees I have the privilege and honor of serving every day,” Ms Robertson said.

The IADC Contractor of the Year award was established in 1988 to recognize individual drilling contractors and their outstanding lifetime achievements in technical innovation, safety and economic efficiency within the drilling industry. Sponsored by National Oilwell Varco, the award is the only one in the industry reserved solely for drilling contractors. All recipients are nominated and selected by IADC member drilling contractors.

Ms Robertson began her career with a predecessor subsidiary of Noble in 1979. From 1989 to 1994, she served consecutively as manager of benefits and director of human resources for Noble Drilling Services. In 1994, she was named vice president, administration. From 1996 through 2001, she served as vice president, administration of Noble Drilling. In 2001, she was named senior vice president, administration, a role she served until 2006, when she was named to her current position.

“For more than 30 years, Ms Robertson has helped guide Noble to its place as a top-tier driller, not only shaping the company’s human resources and administrative practices but also driving Noble’s performance and extending its reputation for fair dealing, operational excellence and professionalism,” said Clay Williams, NOV president and chief operating officer, in presenting the award.
