Wood Group PSN appoints new Americas co-presidents
HOUSTON -- Wood Group PSN (WGPSN) has appointed two new presidents to lead its Americas business. Mitch Fralick and John Glithero have taken up co-presidency of the company's largest region from Derek Blackwood, who is retiring.
Responsible for WGPSN's regional strategy, operations and functional delivery, and all acquisitions and business integration they will report directly to WGPSN's chief executive, Robin Watson.
WGPSN's Americas business employs more than 9,000 people, working in oil & gas operations, maintenance and construction, in conventional and unconventional plays. Glithero and Fralick were previously co-presidents of WGPSN's US business.
Both natives of Texas, Glithero and Fralick have been part of the Wood Group family since 2002 and 2008, respectively, and have 60 years of combined experience in the oil & gas industry.
Glithero joined Wood Group from Baker Energy in 2002 as executive V.P. for the U.S. offshore operations & maintenance business. He was instrumental in Wood Group's 2009 acquisition of Baker Energy and established WGPSN as a leading contract operations provider in the Gulf of Mexico, before he was appointed co-president for the U.S. region, alongside Fralick.
Fralick joined Wood Group in 2008 through the acquisition of Producers Assistance Corporation (PAC), a company he founded and led as president. He was senior V.P. of onshore operations before being appointed co-president for the U.S. business, alongside Glithero.
