Peter Mather, BP’s UK head of country and senior vice president for Europe, will ‎leave the company at the end of the year.

Mather has been UK head of country and regional president for Europe since 2010 and recently ‎established BP’s new ‘regions, cities & solutions’ entity across the UK and continental Europe. 

BP said: “It ‎caps a distinguished career of almost 40 years working in upstream, refining and supply, gas and ‎power, trading, shipping, and commercial leadership roles across several countries.”

William Lin, executive vice president, regions, cities & solutions, said: “We’re immensely grateful ‎for Peter’s unwavering commitment to BP over his career. We will miss not only his sound counsel ‎but his ability to represent the company and skilfully manage a broad set of relationships across the ‎UK and continental Europe.”‎

Lin added: “We are very fortunate to have such a ‎qualified successor to Peter in this key role. Louise’s experience in public policy, issues ‎management and stakeholder engagement, not to mention her extraordinary network, position her ‎ideally to help advance BP’s transformation agenda.’’‎

After leaving BP, Mather will continue in his non-executive role as chair of the BP Europe ‎supervisory board.‎

Louise Kingham OBE, CEO of the Energy Institute for more than 20 years, will join BP in May. BP said: “She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience across a broad range of ‎issues within the energy industry.‎”
