P2 names Ben Wilson, former CTO for GE Oil & Gas, as CTO and Global Head of Product Management. Wilson will oversee P2’s integrated P2 Oil and Gas platform, analytics and cloud businesses.
DENVER, CO – (July 20, 2016) – P2 Energy Solutions today announced the hiring of Ben Wilson as its Chief Technology Officer and Global Head of Product Management. Wilson, who possesses 25 years of technology expertise and leadership, will oversee P2’s continued investment to deliver a fully integrated E&P platform that includes Data, Analytics, Land Management, Accounting, Production and Reserves Management.
“P2 has an exciting product and data set that has 7 billion transactions per year, 600,000 connected wells and 20,000 field operations staff using P2 software.
