Diamond Offshore Drilling, Inc. says that Lawrence R. Dickerson, President and Chief Executive Officer, has decided to retire after more than 30 years of service.

"I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Larry for the past 25 years," said James Tisch, Chairman of the Board of Diamond Offshore. "Diamond Offshore has achieved operational excellence and substantially modernized its fleet with Larry at the helm. Under his leadership, Diamond has created tremendous value for shareholders, including paying total dividends of more than $5 billion-over $36 per share-to shareholders since 2006. The Board is grateful for Larry's many contributions and his distinguished tenure as both President and CEO."

"I have been privileged to lead this great company," Mr. Dickerson said. "Our achievements reflect the contributions of a great many men and women, and I believe that after 34 years at Diamond and 15 as President, it is time to pass the reins to a new generation. I am especially proud of our safety achievements in recent years. I look forward to working with my colleagues, the board, and our customers during this transition."
