BP’s top executive in the US is leaving the company just weeks after the resignation of the company’s global chief executive Bernard Looney.

Dave Lawler, who has served as chair and president of BP America since July 2020, is leaving the company to pursue other interests, according to an internal memo sent to employees on Friday.

“We wanted to share that after nine years of service, Dave Lawler, chairman and president of BP America & CEO of BPX Energy, has notified us of his intent to pursue new career opportunities outside of BP,” said the memo, which was seen by the Financial Times.

Lawler is being replaced as head of BP America by Orlando Alvarez, who will continue in his role as senior vice-president gas and power trading.
