Halliburton CEO Jeff Miller Appointed As Board Chairman

Halliburton Co. (NYSE: HAL) said Jan. 2 that CEO and President Jeff Miller has also assumed the role as board chairman following the retirement of Dave Lesar.

Lesar, who retired as CEO in 2017 but remained executive chairman until the end of last year, has been with the Houston-based oilfield services company since 1993. He had served as Halliburton’s chairman and CEO since predecessor Dick Cheney was nominated to be U.S. vice president in 2000.

Lesar’s successor, Miller, has served in several leadership roles since joining Halliburton in 1997, including COO from 2012 to 2014. He was also named the company’s president and joined its board of directors in 2014.
