Former BP Executive Engaged to Provide Strategic Guidance
Houston, TX, July 25, 2012 – Evolve Partners, a global implementation-focused consulting firm that helps Energy and Process industry clients implement strategic programs, is pleased to announce the appointment of Rick Cape to its corporate Advisory Board.
The Advisory Board will be made up of successful business people like Rick Cape who are recognized leaders in their industries. They will bring an impartial, informed and external perspective designed to complement and validate Evolve’s own perspective.
“The members of our Advisory Board will bring us strategic guidance to help our company and leadership team further expand our service offerings and broaden our relationships in key target markets,” says Rupert Hucker, Founder and CEO of Evolve Partners. “We are proud to have gained the participation of such an experienced business leader in Rick Cape. We view the ongoing assistance and advice provided as a commitment to the quality of our service offerings and the growth of our company.”
Rick Cape brings insight to the Advisory Board that is shaped by more than 30 years of oil & gas leadership roles in North America, the UK, and Australia. He served as President of Atlantic LNG of Trinidad & Tobago, Managing Director of BP Kwinana Refinery in Western Australia, Manager of BP Global LPG Trading, and in other formative operations management roles in refining, marketing, and trading. Rick also brings perspective from key global and functional roles such as Refining & Marketing strategy and performance management during the integration of BP and Amoco, and oversight of the BP Trading Compliance function in North America following a deferred prosecution agreement in 2007. Rick retired from BP in 2009 and is currently a partner with MRB Compliance Consulting, LLC.
“I am thrilled to expand my relationship with Evolve Partners as they continue their tremendous growth in implementation consulting within the Energy and Process sectors,” says Rick. “The oil and gas industry is more complex than ever and facing significant shifts in new ways of operating. Together, we will innovate and continue to grow their business and improve service to clients.”
