Bowleven loses its finance boss

BOWLEVEN yesterday said its finance director John Brown is leaving the oil and gas company after nine years.

Brown is moving to the United Arab Emirates to help run an offshore energy services firm, Bowleven said in a statement, leaving the company he joined as it listed on Aim in 2004.

Deputy finance director Kerry Crawford will take over Brown’s responsibilities at Bowleven when he leaves early next year.

The firm, which is searching for oil and gas in Cameroon and Kenya, said it was “very fortunate to be able to promote a high quality individual from within its team as its future finance director”.
