John Browne

Former CEO of BP & Author of "The Glass Closet: Why Coming Out Is Good Business"

John Browne Biography

John Browne is best known for his role as the chief executive of the energy company BP between 1995 and 2007. This period has been described as the company's "golden period of expansion and diversification." Browne was much lauded during this period, as he engineered a merger with rival Amoco and gained access to Russian oil reserves with the creation of TNK-BP. Hailed as the "Sun King," he also received praise for increasing BP's interest in renewable energy sources.

He is also a former President of the Royal Academy of Engineering. Since 2001, he has been a crossbench member of the House of Lords.

After leaving BP, Browne served as the Managing Director and Managing Partner (Europe) of Riverstone Holdings LLC from 2007 to 2015, and also the chairman of the British shale gas driller Cuadrilla Resources. Lord Browne was appointed as Government Lead Non-Executive in June 2010. His remit is to work with Secretaries of State to appoint non-executives to the board of each government department. In 2015 Browne left Riverstone Holdings to become the Executive Chairman of L1 Energy.

Lord Browne published his memoir Beyond Business in February 2010. Seven Elements that Changed the World, an examination of the role of seven scientific elements in history, was published in April 2013. In May 2014, he published The Glass Closet, a book discussing the risks and rewards of coming out in business and advocating for a top-down corporate policy of LGBT inclusiveness. Lord Browne is said to be the first openly gay CEO of any Fortune 500 company. This book was followed by two more publications: Connect: How companies succeed by engaging radically with society (2015) and Make, Think, Imagine: Engineering the Future of Civilisation (2019).
