393590?max=1600The energy c-suite just gained another female, and the first ever in the history of INTECSEA.

Hearty congratulations to Geeta Thakorlal on her appointment to the position of president of INTECSEA. The oil and gas offshore engineering consultancy's first female president touts over 25 years of award-winning excellence in the international oil and gas sector.

Thakorlal, who takes over for outgoing president Neil Mackintosh, previously served as global head of INTECSEA's Offshore Select business and senior vice president for the INTECSEA Australia/New Zealand region. She has predominantly focused in upstream efforts for greenfield and brownfield offshore and onshore projects. Thakorlal has in-depth knowledge of leading businesses in a variety of roles and situations, spanning technical, commercial, and operational experience.

Her resume boasts a number of honors. Thakorlal was the Chamber of Minerals and Energy (CME) 2014 winner of the Women in Resources People's Choice Award, the 2014 Finalist of Outstanding Women in Resources in Western Australia, and was awarded the Female Champion of Change award by Consult Australia in 2015.

"I am deeply honored and excited to lead INTECSEA into the future," Thakorlal said. "I look forward to continuing Neil's good work and collaborating with all of our people to bring new perspectives and insights that make a difference to our clients and the wider oil and gas industry."

Geeta earned a Bachelor of Engineering degree in chemical and materials engineering from the University of Auckland. She is a Fellow of the Institute of Chemical Engineers and a Fellow of the Institution of Engineers Australia.

We hope to bring Geeta to a Pink Petro TV or HERWorld segment in the near future.
