Woodlands-based Anadarko said the company’s board of directors has made a couple of changes to its leadership team.
Daniel Brown has been named executive vice president, international and deepwater operations, while Bradley Holly has been named executive vice president, U.S. onshore exploration and production.
Darrell Hollek, formerly executive vice president, operations, will serve as a senior adviser until his retirement later this year, Anadarko said.
Brown began his career with the company in 1998, most recently serving as senior vice president, international and deepwater operations since August 2016.
He has held a variety of positions within Anadarko, including vice president, operations for Anadarko’s Southern and Appalachia Region, vice president, corporate planning, general manager of the Maverick Basin and the company’s Freestone/Chalk area (U.S. onshore), business advisor for planning and reserves administration in the Gulf of Mexico, and engineering roles in both the U.S. onshore and the Gulf of Mexico.
Holly began his career in 1994 with Amoco and joined Anadarko in 1997 most recently serving as senior vice president, U.S. onshore exploration and production.
During his more than 20 years of experience, Holly has held positions of increasing responsibility in onshore and offshore engineering and management. He served as senior vice president, operations for Anadarko’s Rocky Mountain Region, vice president, operations for the Southern and Appalachia Region, and general manager of Anadarko’s Greater Natural Buttes area in eastern Utah and the Maverick Basin, which included the Eagleford Shale development in southern Texas.
