Chris has 20 years' experience in the energy industry, having held senior roles within the Oil and Gas Investment Banking teams at UBS and Deutsche Bank, before moving to Perenco where he specialised in M&A business development.

He worked with Wood Mackenzie as both a client and project partner before joining the business in 2010 as part of the upstream consulting team. In this position, he advised a wide range of clients, from Super Major and National Oil Companies to utilities and private equity firms with a focus on strategy, transaction support and commercial advisory.

Chris's remit has progressively broadened over the last decade. After heading up the EMEARC consulting team, he progressed to lead our entire consulting division, which includes more than 100 specialists working within the upstream, gas, power, downstream, metals and mining sectors. In 2019 he moved into his current role as Wood Mackenzie’s EVP of Strategy and Corporate Development, tasked with developing growth opportunities for our world-class, global business.
