Ghana: Tullow announces new leadership changes

Tullow Ghana Limited (TGL) has announced significant changes to its leadership team.

Wissam Al-Monthiry, who has served as Managing Director in Ghana for the past four years, will leave the company at the end of July 2024 to pursue a new career opportunity.

During his tenure, Wissam played a crucial role in transforming the Ghana business and successfully delivering key projects like the Jubilee South-East project, which have been essential to Tullow’s success over the past four years.

Jean-Medard Madama, currently the Director of Tullow Plc’s Non-Operated portfolio and Exploration Business unit, will step in as the interim Managing Director in Ghana starting July 1 until a permanent replacement is appointed.

Jean-Medard is a seasoned business leader with over three decades of technical expertise in the oil and gas sector, having held various operational and leadership roles across Africa, Europe, and North America. As a former Country Manager for Tullow’s Gabon business, Jean-Medard has a profound understanding of Tullow’s operations and future strategy. His experience will be invaluable for optimizing the TEN field and exploring further growth opportunities in the Jubilee field.

Rahul Dhir, Chief Executive Officer of Tullow Oil Plc, commented today: “Wissam has been instrumental in the operational turnaround we have achieved in Ghana and the progressive localisation success stories we have recorded so far. Due to his deep technical knowledge and extensive business leadership experience, Wissam has made a substantial impact during his time at Tullow, and we are of course sad to see him leave. We wish him well and remain grateful for his significant contributions to Tullow.”

Wissam Al-Monthiry, Managing Director of Tullow Ghana said: “Over the last four years, we have chalked several successes, working with all our stakeholders to achieve the operational turnaround in the Ghana business. Whatever success I achieved during my time is attributable to the hardworking colleagues I worked with. I would like to thank the Tullow Ghana team for all their support and assistance and wish them all the best for the future.”

Jean-Medard Madama, Interim Managing Director of Tullow Ghana, commented: “I am looking forward to building on the strong foundations established by Wissam and the team in Ghana to ensure that Tullow continues to play a key role in Ghana’s oil and gas industry.”
