Appointment of Professor Garth Earls as Executive Chairman of IGS
Garth Earls was appointed to the IGS Board as Executive Chairman of IGS on the 7th January 2021. He brings a wealth of experience from the private and public sectors holding many technical, managerial and leadership roles. He joins IGS at an important time as we emerge from the challenges of 2020 and the Covid-19 pandemic with the prospect of large projects starting in 2021.
IGS wishes to thank Mark Parker who stepped down as Chairman and now holds the position as a Director on the Board. Mark was appointed as Chairman of IGS in January 2017 and since then has been critically important in guiding the company, providing excellent advice and input to the Board and management. He was particularly active in assisting IGS in contract negotiations with the Saudi Geological Survey and the award of the Technical Partner project to the IGS-led consortium. IGS looks forward to his continued input on the Board.
