SAN RAMON, Calif. -- John McDonald was recently appointed Chevron's new
chief technology officer (CTO), replacing Donald Paul, who is retiring
after 32 years at the company, crippsears.com reported.
"The development and deployment of advanced technology is absolutely
critical to our success. John combines a deep knowledge of our
business with a practical understanding of technology application and
integration," said Dave O'Reilly, Chevron's chief executive.
McDonald, the former vice president of strategic planning for the
chain, will take on the role at the start of 2008.
McDonald's former position will be taken over by Paul Siegele, who is
currently the company's vice president of deepwater exploration.
The announcement of the appointments comes several weeks after
Chevron announced that it expects the first oil from its deepwater
project in Tahiti to be produced later than expected. Production in the area was planned to begin in 2008, but has been delayed by 12 months.
