MRC appoints Hutchinson exec vp of Canada region

CHICAGO — MRC Global Inc. has tapped industry veteran Scott A. Hutchinson to serve in the newly created role of executive vice president of its Canada region, effectively immediately, as the company reorganizes its operations in North America.

The Houston-based pipe, valves and fittings distributor said that Hutchinson, who began his career with MRC in 1984, will replace Rick Endersby, senior vice president of its Canada region, who is retiring.

Hutchinson will relocate to Calgary, Alberta, and report directly to MRC chairman and chief executive officer Andrew R. Lane. The move reflects the importance of Canada’s oil sands, heavy oil development and shale market to the company, Lane said in a statement Monday.

Before being tapped to head MRC’s operations in Canada, Hutchinson held several leadership roles at the company. He most recently served as executive vice president of North American operations.

"Scott’s 25-plus years of operations and project experience will add a new dimension to the leadership and our plans for growth in Canada," Lane said.

Hutchison’s new role also triggered a reorganization of MRC’s North America Operations group, the company said. That reorganization will see Jim Underhill serve as executive vice president and chief operating officer of the company’s U.S. operations while continuing to oversee global operational processes, information systems, safety, quality and marketing. MRC’s three U.S. regions will report to Underhill, the company said.
