  1. company man

    A company man is an employee who is extremely loyal and dedicated to the company they work for. This individual typically prioritizes the company's interests and goals above their own, and consistently goes above and beyond their duties. They are often perceived as having a long-term commitment to their company and are usually willing to work extra hours, take on additional responsibilities, and loyally follow the company's policies, culture and direction, sometimes to the detriment of their personal life or interests. The term can sometimes carry a negative connotation, suggesting the individual lacks independence or individuality.


  1. Company man

    A company man in the petroleum industry refers to a representative of an operating/exploration company. Other terms that may be used are company representative, foreman, drilling engineer, company consultant, rigsite leader or "well site manager".

The majority of the personnel on the drilling rig, called 'the rig crew', are employees of the drilling contractor. The company man is the on-site representative of the operating/exploration company and is in overall charge of the drilling and associated activities. Rig operations and maintenance and crew upkeep are attended to by the toolpusher, who works for the drilling contractor.
