Gregory Young, who departed ENSCO in early 2014 after he served as president and CEO, has returned to the company as acting president and CEO.
He succeeds Thomas Burns, who has resigned for health reasons, ENSCO said Tuesday.
“Our search for the right candidate has begun, and we look forward to having that person in place as soon as possible, ” said Paul Broome, executive chairman of ENSCO’s board.
“In the meantime, we are confident that Mr. Young will bring the stability to continue business operations seamlessly and to support our customers, shareholders and employees, ” added Broome.
Young previously worked at the CIA and the U.S. Air Force before he joined ENSCO.
He was a member of the Northern Virginia Technology Council activities and the Dean’s Advisory Council of the College of Science at Purdue University.
