U.S. oilfield equipment provider National Oilwell Varco (NOV) has appointed a new member of the company’s board of directors effective September 15, 2017.

NOV said on Friday that Melody B. Meyer was named as the company’s newest board member.

Meyer was with Chevron for over 37 years and held various positions of increasing responsibility, including managing domestic and international operations, managing strategy and planning, and leading new technology development for the organization.

She was also the president of Chevron Asia Pacific E&P from 2011 until her retirement in 2016. Before that, Meyer served as the president of the Chevron Energy Technology Company from 2008 to 2011 and the VP of Chevron’s Gulf of Mexico business unit from 2004 to 2008.

Clay C. Williams, chairman, president, and CEO of NOV, said: “I am very pleased to welcome Melody to our board. She brings a wealth of operational and strategic planning experience with a global perspective from her long career in the oil and gas industry.”

With Meyer’s appointment, the company’s board of directors is now comprised of nine directors, eight of whom are external and independent.

To remind, the former Chevron president was elected as a new non-executive director of British oil major BP back in May.
