About Tony Hayward
Tony Hayward is a British businessman who has an estimated net worth of $20 million. Born Anthony Brian Hayward on May 21, 1957 in Slough, Buckinghamshire, England, he had his first class geology degree from Aston University. He then earned his PhD from the University of Edinburgh School of Geosciences. He began his career as a rig geologist in Aberdeen. Later on, he had a series of technical and commercial roles in BP Exploration after he joined the company in 1982. In 1997, he became the director of exploration and production.
In 2000, Hayward was made the group treasurer. He then became the executive vice president in 2002. From 2002 to 2007, he served as the chief executive officer of exploration and production. He was the executive director of BP in 2003 and was appointed as the group chief executive in 2007 when he replaced John Browne, Baron Brown of Madingley on May 1. On October 1, 2010, he resigned as group chief executive due to his weak management of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and was replaced by Bob Dudley. On November 30, 2010, he stepped down as the director.
Tony Hayward was reportedly hired by Glencore International on July 22, 2011 with the assignment to oversee environment and safety. On September 8, 2011, his venture firm, Vallares, merged with General Energy, a Turkish oil firm. This resulted to a $4.5 billion company that operates in northern Iraq. He was then appointed chairman of CompactGTL, a UK-based gas-to-liquids company, in March 2013.
