Mr Lankford will be responsible for the overall direction and operation of the upstream sales group. He will also work closely with KBR’s business development oversight group.

John Reese, president of KBR’s upstream business, said: Brad brings a wealth of experience to his role. Since joining KBR in 1980, Brad has served in a number of key roles including engineer, corporate account manager and regional sales lead for the Americas and Asia. I am confident in Brad’s ability to lead the upstream sales team.
