SAN RAMON, US: Chevron Corporation (CVX) has named Bruce Niemeyer as corporate vice president of strategic planning, effective immediately. Niemeyer is currently vice president (VP) of Chevron’s mid-continent business unit.

In his new role, Niemeyer (56), will be responsible for setting the strategic direction for the company, allocating capital and other resources and determining operating unit performance measures and targets.  He will report to Mark Nelson, VP of midstream, strategy & policy.

Previously, Niemeyer was VP of the Appalachian/Michigan strategic business unit.  In addition, Niemeyer served as general manager of strategy and planning for Chevron North America Exploration and Production Co. He joined Texaco in 2000 from Atlantic Richfield Co.

Niemeyer will be succeeded by Jeff Gustavson, currently president of Chevron Canada Limited. In his current role, Gustavson is responsible for Chevron’s upstream interests in Canada, including oil sands, unconventional resources in Alberta and British Columbia, interests offshore Newfoundland and Labrador, the proposed Kitimat LNG project, and assets in the Northwest Territories and Yukon Territory.

Gustavson (45), joined Chevron in 1999 and has held positions in Finance, mergers & acquisitions, corporate strategic planning, supply and trading, investor relations and upstream, with numerous assignments in US, as well as Venezuela, the UK and Canada.  He will report to Jeff Shellebarger, president of Chevron North America exploration and production.

“Bruce has been instrumental in developing Chevron’s business in the mid-continent United States, including Chevron’s significant Permian assets,” said Michael Wirth, chairman and chief CEO of Chevron Corporation.  

“Bruce’s strong operating background, coupled with his strategic planning experience, make him exceptionally well-suited to lead our corporate strategy function as we look to further optimize our portfolio and position Chevron to win in any price environment,” added Wirth.
