OPITO appoints Stephen Jones as CEO

OPITO, the not-for-profit global safety and skills organisation for the energy industry, has appointed Stephen Marcos Jones (below) as its new CEO, it said February 5. It described him as a passionate champion of skills, apprenticeships, workforce engagement and the people delivering the energy transition.

He is expected to join OPITO in late March and will replace John McDonald who has led the business since 2017 and announced his intention to step down last year.

Mr Jones has represented the UK’s energy sector on the global stage for over a decade. He had been a non-executive director of OPITO UK & Europe since 2016 and OPITO International since 2020 until relinquishing these positions in November 2023.
