Claire Fitzpatrick has been appointed as Regional President of BP Trinidad and Tobago (BPTT).

She is the first female to lead BPTT, which produces 17 percent of the BP group’s global production.

Fitzpatrick will be accountable for BPTT’s performance and BP’s business interests in Trinidad and Tobago.

She holds a BSc in biological sciences from the University of Edinburgh and is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. 

She joined BP from Ernst & Young in 2002 as chief accountant for BP’s upstream business and since then has held a range of commercial and leadership roles in the business.
