Tullow Oil Plc named Richard Miller CFO and an executive director effective Jan. 1, 2023, according to a company press release on Dec. 8.

Miller joined the company 11 years ago and has been serving as interim CFO since April 2022, as well as group financial controller. Tullow previously announced in March that he would serve as interim CFO prior to the appointment of Jonathan Swinney, former CFO of EnQuest.

"Richard has made a significant contribution to Tullow in his tenure and particularly during the last year as interim CFO," CEO Rahul Dhir commented in the release. "He has helped drive cost discipline and capital efficiency alongside improvements in our broader finance function."

During his tenure at Tullow, Miller contributed to the successful rebasing of the company's cost structure and resetting of the balance sheet, along with the transition to a more focused capital allocation.

Prior to joining Tullow, he worked in Ernst and Young LLP's audit and assurance department.

"[Miller] has the right mix of sector and finance experience and I am looking forward to working with Richard as we build a leading African oil & gas company," Dhir continued.
