Geeta Thakorlal is the president of INTECSEA, leader of the Advisian Front End Hydrocarbons & Chemicals global business as part of the WorleyParsons group, a Pink Petro member and a keynote speaker at our upcoming GRIT Awards.
As of today, Geeta is also a member of the Group Leadership Team at WorleyParsons.
The appointment represents yet another milestone in a career filled with them. We profiled Geeta earlier this month when she shared the story of her first experience in the offshore sector, back in 1988 after the Piper Alpha accident in the North Sea. Geeta was part of a UK team that provided expert advice on the incident.
Now, as she joins the Group Leadership Team at WorleyParsons, Geeta becomes part of an exciting statistic within the company: 30% of the women in the company’s sponsorship program have made significant moves this year.Also noteworthy is the fact that women account for roughly 21% of employees at WorleyParsons and about 26% of the leadership teams within the company.
“I am honored to join this incredible team of leaders at WorleyParsons and look forward to contributing to the growth of our organization. It’s also an honor to be part of a company committed to developing the talented women within the organization into the next generation of leaders,” Geeta told us.
Geeta remains committed to the advancement of women in leadership and has been recognized for her contributions by the Chamber of Minerals and Energy in 2014, Consult Australia in 2015 and the Houston Business Journal, in the Women Who Mean Business in Energy category, in 2017. Additionally, Geeta has also participated in the Chief Executive Women (CEW) networking group in Australia and is the Vice President of Lean In Energy.
Our congratulations go out to Geeta, and we look forward to hearing more from this incredible woman live at the GRIT Awards on Oct. 3!
