Chevron Names New Technology Executives

SAN RAMON, Calif. -- Effective June 1, 2008, Melody Meyer will assume the position of president of Chevron Energy Technology (ETC) and Louie Ehrlich will be named president of Chevron Information Technology (ITC) and chief information officer (CIO) for the company, Chevron said in a statement.

"Both these appointments will help ensure Chevron continues to deliver outstanding performance in the development of our global energy portfolio," John McDonald, Chevron vice president and chief technology officer said in a released statement. "Melody's experience in operations and technology application will bring great depth to her role in which she will manage the company's technology services and research and development. Louie brings demonstrated leadership skills and broad information technology experience that spans the full breadth of Chevron’s business."

Meyer, who will replace the retiring Mark Puckett, is currently vice president of the Gulf of Mexico strategic business unit in Covington, La. She began her career in 1979, following graduation from Trinity University in San Antonio, with a degree in engineering science-mechanical. Meyer has held operating management assignments in Kazakhstan and Angola and senior positions in Chevron's North America Upstream organization, including vice president of the Mid-Continent business unit, headquartered in Houston.

Ehrlich, who will replace the retiring Gary Masada, earned a degree in computer science from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1981, and a Master of Business Administration degree from Houston Baptist University in 1995. His tenure with Chevron began 1981 as a programmer-analyst in New Orleans. Subsequent positions included chief information officer for Chevron's Downstream Marketing business in 2000. He will remain vice president of Services and Strategy and CIO for Global Downstream until June.
