McDermott International Inc. and Chicago Bridge & Iron Co. N.V. (CB&I) have announced the executive leadership team and integrated organisational structure of the combined company, which will be effective upon the close of the transaction.

Upon the close of the transaction, the combined company’s operations will be organised by four ‘Areas’ – North, Central & South America (NCSA), Europe, Africa, Russia & Caspian (EARC), Middle East & North Africa (MENA) and Asia Pacific (APAC) – to encourage collaboration, drive excellence in execution and promote robust growth. CB&I’s Technology business will remain a tier-one market facing offering. The Areas and technology divisions will be supported by centralised commercial and project delivery organisations.

The integration of commercial, including the centralisation of the company’s bidding functions, will improve customer interactions, allocation of resources, consistency of approach and risk management of new contracts. The centralisation of project delivery, including project management and controls, engineering, supply chain, marine, fabrication, construction, and quality, health, safety, environment and security (QHSES), will also significantly enhance project delivery performance.

The Area, technology and project delivery teams will be supported by centralised corporate strategy, finance, human resources, legal and communication units.

The combination remains subject to satisfaction of the remaining closing conditions, including clearance under Russian competition laws, approval by McDermott’s stockholders and CB&I’s shareholders, completion of financing and other customary conditions. The transaction is currently expected to close in 2Q18.
