International oilfield services company Expro takes great pleasure in announcing the appointment of world-renowned businessman Sir George Buckley as its new Chairman. Sir George has been the US-based Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of global blue-chip manufacturer, 3M, since December 2005. 3M is a Fortune 100 technology company serving customers and communities with innovative products and services, including world-leading brands such as Post-it and Scotch. His appointment to Expro takes effect from June 1. Prior to leading 3M, Sir George was chairman and chief executive officer of Brunswick Corporation, following a successful tenure as president of the US Electric Motors Division and the Automotive and Precision Motors Division of Emerson Electric Co. in St. Louis. Previously, he was managing director (president) of the Central Services Division of the British Railways Board.

Sir George, who was born, raised and educated in the UK, has a Ph.D. in engineering, and also holds a B.Sc. in electrical and electronic engineering and three honorary doctorates. He personally holds 16 patents to his name, has several awards for learned society papers and has received plaudits for developing a culture of innovation at 3M, which has seen the company thrive during his tenure. He steered the company through the recession, increasing sales in emerging markets to a third of the company’s total and renewing emphasis on research and development. Its net income in 2010 was $4.1bn, up from $3.2bn the previous year. Sir George, who is 64, received his knighthood in the Queen’s birthday honours list this year, marking decades of achievement in industry.

Expro Chief Executive Officer, Charles Woodburn, said: ”I am delighted by Sir George’s appointment. He is a highly regarded and hugely successful businessman; a true innovator who brings to Expro’s Board vast leadership experience, as well as an in-depth understanding of technologies and global businesses. His expertise in managing large corporations across multiple markets will be a tremendous asset to Expro as we continue to invest in growing our business.”

Sir George said: ‘’Expro has developed a strong brand and reputation for investing in innovative solutions to meet the needs of its customers. As the global oil and gas industry continues to throw up increasingly difficult challenges, the focus on devising and developing new technologies becomes even more important. I am delighted to be joining the Expro Board and look forward to contributing to the future success of this exciting business.’’
