Former BP engineer to head Colombia’s Ecopetrol

Friday, August 18, 2017


Colombian state-run oil company Ecopetrol said on Thursday its current vice-president, Felipe Bayon, will take over as chief executive, replacing Juan Carlos Echeverry.

Echeverry, who has headed the company since March 2015, through difficult times caused by the global fall in crude prices, has resigned for family reasons, Ecopetrol said.

Bayon, an engineer who spent 20 years working at BP, will take over from Sept. 15.
