Former US Ambassador to Russia Rejoins Chevron Board

Chevron announced on September 8 it had re-elected John Huntsman to its board of directors. Huntsman resigned from the board in 2017 after a three-year tenure so he could serve as the US ambassador to Russia – a position he left in October last year.

Huntsman will also sit on Chevron's management compensation committee and its public policy committee.

Over a career spanning business, politics and diplomacy, the 60-year-old has held positions in the administrations of five US presidents and also served as US ambassador to China and to Singapore.

Chevron is a shareholder in the Caspian Pipeline Consortium (CPC) that runs through southern Russia providing Kazakh and Russian oilfields with an export route. It also supplies lubricants in Russia and its Chevron Lummus Global subsidiary licenses out technologies to Russian oil companies.
