British oil giant BP elected a new non-executive director at the company’s annual general meeting (AGM) on May 17.

BP said on Thursday that Melody Meyer was named as the latest addition to the company’s board of directors.

Meyer has 37 years of service with Chevron, including senior leadership roles internationally. Until her retirement in 2016, she was the president of Chevron Asia Pacific Exploration and Production, responsible for the financial and operating performance of the upstream assets in Chevron’s APAC region.

Carl-Henric Svanberg, chairman of BP, said: “The distinctive breadth, variety and geographic scope of Melody’s experience in the global oil and gas industry make her a valuable addition to the board. With a deep understanding of the factors influencing safe, efficient and commercially high-performing projects in a global organization, she will bring an additional world-class operational perspective to the board.”

Meyer started her career with Gulf Oil which later merged with Chevron where she remained until her retirement in 2016.

She was the VP of Chevron’s Gulf of Mexico business unit in 2004 and in 2008 became president of the Chevron Energy Technology Company. She became the president of Chevron Asia Pacific Exploration and Production in 2011.

Meyer was recognized as a 2009 Trinity Distinguished Alumni, with the BioHouston Women in Science Award, and was the ASME Rhodes Petroleum Industry Leadership Award recipient.
