San Ramon-based U.S. oil giant, Chevron, has named Rhonda J. Morris as the corporate vice president of Human Resources, effective October 1, 2016.
Chevron said on Wednesday that Morris is currently the vice president of Human Resources for Chevron’s Downstream & Chemicals business.
Morris will oversee Chevron’s Human Resources, Diversity and Ombuds, and Medical and Health Services groups.
She will report to Chevron’s corporate vice president of Human Resources and Corporate Services, Joe Laymon, who will continue to oversee Chevron Business and Real Estate Services, Global Security, and Aviation Services until his planned retirement in late 2017.
The newly-appointed VP joined Chevron in 1991 in the Corporate Human Resources Development Program. Since that time, she has held several roles of increasing responsibility in human resources, global marketing, and international products.
In 2014, Morris received the Industry Leader Award from the Professional Businesswomen in California recognizing her work to advance gender equality in the workplace.
Morris also serves on the boards of Techbridge, the East Bay Agency for Children and the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management.
