With 34 years of experience in the petroleum industry, Rose-Hulman alumnus Kenneth M. Woodworth was a natural fit to become managing director/CEO of Marathon Oil Norway, a subsidiary of the Marathon Oil Corporation.

Woodworth, a 1978 mechanical engineering alumnus, has held several national and international leadership positions at Marathon, including serving as Managing Director Equatorial Guinea and Canada operations.

"The company has delivered excellent results over many years. I want to build on and maintain the good relationships the company has with the Norwegian authorities," says Woodworth in a company news release.

Woodworth started his Marathon career in 1977 as an engineer at the company's refinery in Robinson, Illinois. He also has a master's degree in project management from George Washington University.
