Ex-Tullow man joins Azimuth

Private equity-backed group Azimuth has taken on board an ex-Tullow and Shell man to lead commercial aspects of the company’s global upstream drive.

Brian Glover, who most recently served as senior vice president of exploration and business development at Hungary’s MOL, has joined Azimuth as senior vice president in charge of the development of its upstream portfolio.

Before joining MOL, Glover spent around six years at Anglo-Irish independent Tullow Oil, joining in 2008 as general manager and director of operations in Uganda, before it farmed out of a significant portion of its position to Total and China National Offshore Oil Corporation.

He then moved back to London with the mid-cap player, before taking on a role at its flagship Jubilee asset off Ghana.

Before joining Tullow, Glover was at Anglo-Dutch supermajor Shell, stating off in a North Sea role, before taking on positions in Gabon and Nigeria.

Azimuth, backed with cash from Seacrest Capital, includes in its stable companies focusing on exploration in Namibia (Azinam), Ireland (Azeire), South American (Azilat, primarily Brazil), Southeast Asia (Azipac), the UK North Sea (Azinor) and Norway (Fortis Petroleum).
