Restructuring aligns Bristow with government and offshore priorities
Government and offshore energy services businesses will each be led by a dedicated COO, a structure that will help the company respond to market needs efficiently and facilitate the pursuit of its growth strategy.
President and CEO Chris Bradshaw.

Bristow Group has reorganised its leadership team to align with its main interests in government services and offshore energy services. Given the increased scale and geographic scope of Bristow’s government services business, it has implemented dedicated executive management purely focused on this service line, with responsibility to manage existing operations as well as pursue growth opportunities. The new structure also provides dedicated executive management for Bristow’s offshore energy services business, which will help drive enhanced efficiency across the company’s global oil and gas operations.

“Aligning our executive leadership team around our key end markets enables us to enhance consistency and operational excellence in our existing operations, while effectively resourcing the pursuit of Bristow’s growth initiatives,” says president and CEO Chris Bradshaw. “The new structure leverages the strengths of our leadership team and better positions the company to deliver on our long term strategy for diversification and growth in new and existing markets.”

Under the revised structure, Alan Corbett will become chief operating officer, government services, responsible for overseeing all government services activity, including existing operations, new business and emerging markets for areas such as Bristow’s growing market share in the search and rescue sector. Corbett will retain responsibility for Airnorth as well as the Humberside airport.

Stuart Stavley will become chief operating officer, offshore energy services. He will have oversight of Bristow’s oil and gas operations in all the regions where the company operates. In addition, Stavley has global oversight for operational shared services, including safety, standards, supply chain and fleet management functions, among others.

As senior vice president, key accounts, Samantha Willenbacher will work closely with Bristow’s offshore energy customers around the world to ensure the company is effectively meeting requirements. Willenbacher will also provide global bid support to help the company capture new business.
