CEO of Wood Group Mustang, Michele McNichol, has been honoured in the Houston Business Journal’s Women in Energy Leadership Awards.

Michele, whose career in the oil and gas industry spans more than 25 years, secured the accolade in recognition of her successful leadership and prominent role in numerous high-profile industry projects including serving as Wood Group Mustang’s project manager for BP Thunder Horse, the world’s largest semi-submersible production facility.

She was one of 26 women whose achievements were celebrated at an event held by the Houston Business Journal at the Houstonian Hotel on 20th October.

Michele says: “To be honoured by the Houston Business Journal is fantastic recognition. My leadership purpose is to be a visionary leader who clearly communicates. I strongly believe that success in leadership is not gender specific – you just have to be willing to put in the hard work.

“It is a joy to receive this accolade alongside other women who are showcasing the exceptional female leadership that exists across the oil & gas industry and acting as inspirational role models to the next generation of talent.”
