The interim CFO of BP is Kate Thomson


BP has officially announced the appointment of Kate Thomson as the interim Chief Financial Officer. This decision follows last week’s appointment of Murray Auchincloss as the interim Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of BP.

Currently, Kate serves as BP’s Senior Vice President of Finance for Production & Operations, where she is responsible for overseeing financial matters and engaging in commercial partnerships on a global scale. Her association with BP spans 19 years, during which she has held various high-ranking financial positions, including Group Treasurer and Head of Group Tax.

Murray Auchincloss, Interim CEO of BP, commented on the appointment, stating, “Kate’s experience and skills make her ideally suited to take on the role of interim CFO. She brings deep technical knowledge together with a detailed understanding of BP and has a first-class track record of leadership across our finance function. I look forward to working alongside her as we continue to deliver BP’s strategy.”

Prior to joining BP in 2004, Kate gained professional experience in various roles, including M&A tax at Ernst & Young and as the Group Head of Tax for Charter plc. Kate has served on the board of Aker BP for the past seven years and holds positions on the boards of multiple BP Group companies. She is a qualified chartered accountant.
