Bristow Group Inc. has named L. Don Miller as its president and CEO and appointed him as a member of the board of directors, which took effect at the close of business on February 28, 2019.

Miller previously served as the company’s senior vice president and CEO. Bristow Group extends its thanks to Thomas Amonett, executive vice chairman of Bristow Group’s board of directors, for his service as interim president following the retirement of previous president and CEO Jonathan Baliff.

“As we continue to navigate through challenging times, Don’s steady hand will provide important and needed continuity. Don’s knowledge of the business and our clients coupled with his extensive experience in financial and capital markets position him well to lead this great company,” Tom Knudson, director and chairman of Bristow Group’s board of directors, said.

Miller joined Bristow Group in 2010 and has held several leadership positions within the company’s finance and strategy functions, including vice president of mergers, acquisitions and integration. Miller, a Chartered Financial Analyst charterholder, was also named a finalist for the 2018 Houston Business Journal CFO of the Year award.

Additionally, the company said that Brian Allman has been promoted and will replace Miller as senior vice president and CFO. Allman was previously vice president and chief accounting officer for Bristow, and will continue as Bristow’s chief accounting officer. Allman joined Bristow in 2006 as director of financial reporting.
