IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation has appointed the president of SJL Global Insights LLC, and retired US Navy Admiral, Sam Locklear to its board of directors, effective 1 Feb 2017.

In addition, Joseph Prueher, who has served on Fluor’s board since 2003, has elected to retire effective 3 May 2017.

Locklear retired from the US Navy in 2015 as a four-star admiral after 39 years, including 15 years as a flag officer. During his tenure, Locklear served as Commander of the US Pacific Command, Commander of the US Naval Forces Europe and Africa, and Commander of NATO’s Allied Joint Forces Command. He was ranked eleventh among the 100 most influential people in global defence issues by Defense News in 2013.

Locklear also serves on the board of directors for the National Committee on US-China Relations, the Advisory Board for the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) Sumitro Chair for Southeast Asia Studies, and as a senior advisor to the Center for Climate and Security.

“The addition of Admiral Locklear to Fluor’s board of directors provides the company with another top-tier advisor with a global business perspective and demonstrated leadership credentials. Locklear’s nearly four decades of global experience serving in the United States Navy will further enable and bolster Fluor’s strategy to become the integrated solutions provider of choice for its clients around the world,” said David Seaton, chairman and CEO of Fluor.

“On behalf of Fluor Corporation and all of our colleagues, I would also like to thank Joseph Prueher for his more than 13 years of excellent service to our company. He has provided our company with great value and has been a tremendous mentor to me personally,” added Seaton.
