Leadership named for Oxy California independent spinoff

During 2008-12, he served as vice-president, acquisition and corporate finance, and vice-president, California operations.

Albrecht joined the company in 2007 as vice-president, California operations, and has been president of Occidental Oil & Gas-Americas, and vice-president of Oxy since 2011.
