HOUSTON -- September 25, 2012
McDermott International, Inc. (NYSE:MDR) ("McDermott" or the "Company")
announced today that William H. Schumann, III has been appointed to its Board
of Directors, effective September 24, 2012. Mr. Schumann will also serve on
the Company’s Audit and Governance Committees.
Mr. Schumann retired from FMC Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of subsea
technology solutions to the energy industry and products for other industrial
markets, in August 2012, following over 30 years of service. During his
distinguished career with FMC, Mr. Schumann held positions of increasing
responsibility, including serving over 10 years as Chief Financial Officer.
Mr. Schumann, age 62, graduated from The University of California, Los Angeles
with a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering and from the University of
Southern California with a Master of Science degree in management science. He
also serves on the boards of directors of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), an
industrial distributor of electronic components and products, and AMCOL
International Corporation (NYSE: ACO), an international producer and marketer
of value-added, specialty mineral and related products.
"We are pleased to welcome Bill to McDermott's Board of Directors," said
Stephen M. Johnson, Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive
Officer of McDermott. "His operational and financial experience in the global
energy industry will be an asset, particularly as we increase our emphasis in
the worldwide subsea industry. The Board looks forward to working with Bill
and to his many contributions."
In addition, the Company announced today that it has accepted the resignation
of Thomas C. Schievelbein from McDermott’s Board of Directors. Mr.
Schievelbein resigned from his Directorship due to increased demands on his
time as a result of his recent appointment as chairman of the board, president
and chief executive officer of The Brink’s Company. Ms. Mary Shafer-Malicki, a
McDermott director since 2011, will replace Mr. Schievelbein as Chair of the
Company’s Compensation Committee.
“We greatly appreciate Tom’s many contributions to McDermott’s Board over the
last 8 years and for serving as Chairman of the Compensation Committee for the
past 4 years. We wish him all the best during his tenure leading The Brink’s
Company,” continued Mr. Johnson. “The Board of Directors is very pleased to
appoint Ms. Shafer-Malicki as Chairwoman of the Compensation Committee. She
has served well on that committee since being appointed to our Board, and we
look forward to her leadership of it.”
