HOUSTON, TX — McDermott announces Maurizio Coratella as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. In his new role, Coratella will apply his more than three decades of industry leadership and engineering and construction expertise and will lead delivery of integrated engineering and construction solutions across the energy value chain — from concept to decommissioning.

"Maurizio's expertise is a strategic supplement to an already-robust executive team," said Michael McKelvy, President and CEO of McDermott. "He shares our commitment to safe, responsible project execution to exceed the evolving needs of our customers and shape the future of global energy infrastructure."

Coratella spent much of his career in executive, operations, and project leadership roles at large, international engineering and construction firms. Most recently, he was Chief Operating Officer of a startup focused on carbon reduction in the steel industry. His early career was spent in the onshore and power generation sectors of the industry and included various operations, project management, and engineering positions for large LNG, power generation projects in international locations.

Coratella served on the Board of Directors of Siirtec Nigi SpA, an engineering firm. In addition to various executive and leadership certifications, he holds a masters degree in industrial engineering from Politecnico di Milano.
