Former NATO Chief Robertson Gets Top Post in Russia’s TNK-BP
Russian-British oil major TNK-BP has appointed Lord Robertson, the former secretary-general of NATO, as its Deputy Chairman.
The British Financial Times reported on Thursday, July 27, that BP nominated Lord Robertson, 60, as its leading representative on the Russian company’s board and the former defence secretary will join the board in October.
The Labour peer told the paper that the challenge of his new role was to promote TNK-BP as a showcase joint venture in Russia’s oil industry.
“I know Russia and I strongly believe in Russia being a trusting and trusted partner in the common issues we all face,” he said. “This post will give me a unique opportunity to be engaged in a remarkable company in a vital area of geo-economic interest.”
Lord Robertson replaces Dick Olver, the former BP deputy chief executive.
