HOUSTON, July 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Advisian has appointed Geeta Thakorlal to the position of president for INTECSEA. The oil and gas offshore engineering consultancy's first female president touts over 25 years of award-winning excellence in the international oil and gas sector.
Thakorlal, who takes over for outgoing president Neil Mackintosh, previously served as global head of INTECSEA's Offshore Select business and senior vice president for the INTECSEA Australia/New Zealand region. She has predominantly focused in upstream efforts for greenfield and brownfield offshore and onshore projects. Thakorlal has in-depth knowledge of leading businesses in a variety of roles and situations, spanning technical, commercial, and operational experience.
Her resume boasts a number of honors. Thakorlal was the Chamber of Minerals and Energy (CME) 2014 winner of the Women in Resources People's Choice Award, the 2014 Finalist of Outstanding Women in Resources in Western Australia, and was awarded the Female Champion of Change award by Consult Australia in 2015.
Outgoing president and industry veteran Neil Mackintosh has successfully led INTECSEA since 2014, with a focus on repositioning the company in the market and building deeper client relationships. In his new role as executive vice president of Advisian, Mackintosh will lead all marketing and sales efforts, and will be a key member of the Advisian and WorleyParsons leadership teams.
"INTECSEA and its people have seen great success under Neil's watch. Despite incredibly challenging market conditions, INTECSEA has gained market share and developed a strong position in key markets such as India, Nigeria, Egypt and Mexico," said Dennis Finn, Advisian CEO. "We thank Neil for his constant enthusiasm and strong leadership of INTECSEA, and look forward to him carrying that energy and enthusiasm into Advisian's global sales and marketing efforts."
"We are thrilled to have Geeta serve in the role of president," Finn continued. "Geeta has been a formidable and influential industry presence during her time at WorleyParsons and INTECSEA, and will undoubtedly lead with distinction and continue to drive INTECSEA and the wider business forward."
"I am deeply honored and excited to lead INTECSEA into the future," Thakorlal said. "I look forward to continuing Neil's good work and collaborating with all of our people to bring new perspectives and insights that make a difference to our clients and the wider oil and gas industry."
Geeta earned a Bachelor of Engineering degree in chemical and materials engineering from the University of Auckland. She is a Fellow of the Institute of Chemical Engineers and a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers Australia.
