SAN RAMON, US: Chevron Corporation (CVX) has appointed Clay Neff (54) as the president of Chevron Africa and Latin America Exploration and Production (E&P), effective 1 January 2017. Currently, Neff is managing director of Chevron’s Nigeria Mid-Africa Business Unit, who will oversee Chevron’s exploration and production activities in 15 countries across Africa and Latin America.

Neff succeeds Ali Moshiri, who will retire from Chevron after 38 years of distinguished service, effective 1 April 2017.

In his new role, Neff will report to Jay Johnson, Chevron’s executive VP, Upstream. He is responsible for Chevron’s upstream operations in Nigeria and West Africa. Additionally, Neff is also the chairman of the board of trustees for the Foundation for Partnership Initiatives in the Niger Delta (PIND), chairman of the Oil Producers Trade Section of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce & Industry, and a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers. 

“Neff’s broad operating experience, particularly in Africa, makes him highly qualified to lead these two key regions for our business,” said John Watson, Chevron’s chairman and CEO. 

“Moshiri’s has played a central and critical role in growing our business in Africa and Latin America.  He has also distinguished himself as a champion of Chevron’s commitment to economic and social development in the areas in which we operate,” added Watson.
