UK-based major BP said that Helge Lund and Pamela Daley have joined its board as non-executive directors.
Earlier in April, BP informed that Helge Lund would join the board as a non-executive director on September 1, becoming chairman on January 1, 2019, when Carl-Henric Svanberg steps down.
Lund has been able now to join the board earlier, however, this will not affect the timing of his succession to chairman.
Pamela Daley spent most of her career with the General Electric Company. She joined GE in 1989 as tax counsel and held a number of senior executive roles in the company, serving most recently as a senior advisor to the chairman between 2013 and 2014. Between 2004 and 2013 she was senior vice president of corporate business development at GE, where she was responsible for GE’s mergers, acquisitions and divestiture activities worldwide, and prior to that, from 1991 to 2004, served as vice president and senior counsel for transactions.
Pamela Daley has served as a director of BlackRock since 2014 and of SecureWorks since 2016. She was a director of BG Group from 2014 to 2016 prior to its acquisition by Shell, was a director of Patheon N.V. from 2016 to 2017 prior to its acquisition by Thermo Fisher, and was previously a partner at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, where she specialized in domestic and cross-border tax-oriented financings and commercial transactions.
