Leaders in Energy is pleased to announce its 2,300th member — Steve Williams — who works in the oil and gas industry in Houston, Texas. Steve is the Director of Marketing Communications at M-I SWACO, part of Schlumberger, a technology provider in the oil and natural gas industry. We asked Steve to tell us about his interest and background in energy.
“I have worked in the oil and gas industry for over 25 years with roles in Operations, Marketing, Business Development and Project Management for several multinational companies. I have been fortunate – some may say unfortunate! – to travel extensively throughout my career and also live in many far-flung places, which has enabled me to meet people from all walks of life and to experience many interesting cultures.
I am currently based in Houston, USA as Director of Marketing Communications with Schlumberger, which is the world’s leading supplier of technology, integrated project management and information solutions to the global oil and gas industry.
The last couple of years have been difficult for everyone involved in this industry, but it does motivate us to improve efficiency and performance, not only through the introduction of new technologies and techniques but also by developing the competency of our people. On a personal level, I believe to thrive in this business you have to be passionate about what you do, you have to challenge yourself and always embrace change – the energy industry dynamics are evolving rapidly and the effects are very interesting to monitor.
I joined the Leaders in Energy group to get more information around the wider energy issues and dynamics.”
