HOUSTON, Jan. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Superior Energy Services, Inc. (the “Company”) has announced Brian K. Moore, the Company’s executive vice president, was appointed to serve as president and chief executive officer and a member of the board of directors of the Company. Mr. Moore will also serve on the audit committee and compensation committee of the Company’s board of directors. As a result of Mr. Moore’s appointment, Michael Y. McGovern, the Company’s executive chairman of its board of directors, will no longer perform the functions of the Company’s principal executive officer but will remain with the Company as executive chairman of the board of directors.

“The appointment of Mr. Moore represents the conclusion of a rigorous selection process. Brian is the unquestionable best candidate, given the breadth of his experience, extensive oil field service background, tested and proven judgment, and history with the Company,” said Mike McGovern.

Brian joined the Company as Senior Executive Vice President in 2012 and has served as Executive Vice President of Corporate Services since 2016. In 2021, he led the divestitures of the US Onshore hydraulic fracturing, well service, coiled tubing, fluid management, and accommodations businesses.

Mr. Moore stated, “I’m very appreciative for the support of our board and look forward to the opportunity to continue to work with Mike McGovern, who has led the Company with such distinction over the past nine months. Throughout this last year, we have undertaken the hard work and commitment towards transforming Superior into a more focused, competitive, and well-positioned Company. But most importantly, I am proud that Superior has remained committed to our Shared Core Values throughout these remarkable times, especially the safety and health of those with whom we work.”

“I look forward to working together with our excellent leadership team and employees toward Superior’s future successes and thank them for their dedication and perseverance,” Mr. Moore said.
