We are pleased to announce the appointment of Gordon Ronaldson to the position of Kenera Senior Vice President.

Following a career as a Royal Navy officer, Gordon has gained two decades of experience across both operator and service-side companies in the energy industry. His experience involves operational roles both onshore and offshore across Europe and Asia with Royal Dutch Shell, rising to become the Regional Production Manager for Shell’s Asia Pacific business. At Talisman Energy, he was the Production Director for the UK, and Chief Operating Officer for Global Energy Group. Gordon led Wood’s business in the strategically important Russia/Caspian, Saudi Arabia and wider Gulf regions before taking on the role of CEO at Score Group Limited.

In addition to being an energy industry professional, Gordon has also been involved in a number of industrial sectors including water, wind, solar, nuclear, aerospace, defence and the broader energy transition. He was awarded an MBE in 2001 for services to Great Britain and is both a Chartered Engineer and a Chartered Environmentalist.

KCA Deutag Chief Executive Joseph Elkhoury welcomed the appointment, saying “Since its launch, Kenera has made solid progress in both the traditional oilfield and the renewables markets – from expanding our geographical footprint in the Middle East to developing innovative electrification, battery storage and wind solutions. As SVP of Kenera, Gordon will help us build upon this early success, by leading, shaping and expanding the Kenera business offerings.”
