Chevron Makes Three Key Appointments to Its Executive Team

Chevron Corporation today announced that it is making three key appointments to its executive team and realigning its existing technology and services organizations.

Effective Jan. 1, 2014, Jay Johnson becomes senior vice president, Upstream, and Joe Geagea becomes senior vice president, Technology, Projects and Services. The new roles will report to George KirklanB, vice chairman and executive vice president, Upstream. Also, effective Jan. 1, 2014, Pierre Breber becomes corporate vice president and president, Chevron Gas and Midstream, reporting to John Watson, chairman of the board and chief executive officer. Following Kirkland’s planned retirement in 2015, consistent with the company’s mandatory retirement policy, Johnson and Geagea will report to Watson.

“These appointments ensure a smooth transition in our upstream business and simplify the delivery of technology and services to all of our businesses,” Watson said. “Jay, Joe and Pierre are experienced leaders who will enhance a very effective leadership team.”

Johnson, 54, currently is president of Chevron’s Europe, Eurasia and Middle East Exploration and Production Company, based in London. He joined Chevron in 1981 and previously has been managing director of the Australia and Eurasia upstream business units.

Johnson will lead an upstream organization that continues to have four regional operating companies:

Todd Levy will replace Johnson in London as president of Europe, Eurasia and Middle East Exploration and Production Company. Levy currently leads a key Chevron upstream support organization and has wide-ranging upstream experience with past assignments for the company in Kazakhstan, Angola, Australia and the United States.

Melody Meyer continues as president of Asia Pacific Exploration and Production Company, based in Singapore.

Ali Moshiri continues as president of Africa and Latin America Exploration and Production Company, based in Houston.

Jeff Shellebarger continues as president of North America Exploration and Production Company, based in Houston.

Geagea, 54, will lead a new organization composed of energy and information technology, capital projects management, procurement, upstream production services and workforce development organizations. These groups will support the company’s upstream, downstream and midstream businesses. Geagea, who joined Chevron in 1982, has held positions in each of these three areas. He is the current president of Chevron Gas and Midstream and previously was the managing director of the Asia South upstream business unit and president of the company’s downstream operations in East Africa, the Middle East and Pakistan.

Breber, 49, currently is managing director of the Asia South upstream business unit, based in Bangkok, Thailand. He joined Chevron in 1989 and previously has held senior roles in Chevron’s finance organization, including corporate vice president and treasurer. He will lead a Gas and Midstream business that was reorganized earlier this year to consolidate trading operations and strengthen its support to the upstream and downstream businesses.
