Chevron makes several vice-president appointments

Chevron Corp. has reported changes to its executive leadership. All appointments are effective Jan. 1, 2014.

Jay Johnson, currently president of Chevron’s Europe, Eurasia, and Middle East exploration and production unit based in London, was named senior vice-president, upstream. Johnson joined Chevron in 1981. He previously served as managing director of the Australia and Eurasia upstream business units.

Joe Geagea, currently president of Chevron Gas & Midstream, will become senior vice-president, technology, projects, and services.

Geagea will lead a new organization comprised 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 joined Chevron in 1982 and has held positions in each of those sectors. He previously served as 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.

Pierre Breber, currently managing director of the Asia South upstream business unit based in Bangkok, will assume the position of corporate vice-president and president, Chevron Gas & Midstream.

Breber joined Chevron in 1989 and has held senior roles in the company’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, Chevron said.

Chevron said both Johnson and Geagea will report to George Kirkland, vice-chairman and executive vice-president, upstream, while Breber will report to John Watson, chairman and chief executive officer. Chevron added that Johnson and Geagea will report to Watson after Kirkland’s planned retirement in 2015, which is consistent with the company's mandatory retirement policy.

During the summer, Chevron named Jeff Shellebarger as president of Chevron North America Exploration & Production Co., succeeding Gary Luquette (OGJ Online, June 5, 2013) and Chevron North Sea Ltd. appointed Craig May as managing director of Chevron Upstream Europe, based in Aberdeen (OGJ Online, July 26, 2013).
