Houston independent Apache Corp. reported changes to its executive structure.
Roger Plank, president and chief corporate officer, will retire from the company, where he spent almost 33 years.
Plank started his career in Apache’s Minneapolis office in 1981 as an investment representative and advanced to president of Apache Programs Inc.
He became a vice-president of Apache in 1987 and provided leadership of the communications, investor relations, government affairs, and planning functions. He became chief financial officer in 1997 and president of the company in 2009.
Alfonso Leon, senior vice-president and chief of staff since 2012, has been appointed executive vice-president and chief financial officer. He will report to G. Steven Farris, chairman, chief executive officer, and president.
Apache previously reshuffled its executive structure in September (OGJ Online, Sept. 23, 2013).
