Australian LNG player Woodside has appointed Graham Tiver as the company’s new chief financial officer and executive vice president.
Woodside said in a statement it expects Tiver to start work in early February 2022.
Joining Woodside from BHP, Tiver previously held the role of group financial controller with
responsibility for BHP’s global accounting and reporting function and financial improvement.
Woodside said last month it had signed a binding merger agreement with BHP’s oil and gas business.
During his 28-year career with BHP and WMC Resources, Tiver has held “significant financial, commercial and leadership roles across a range of business sectors, including minerals and oil and gas,” Woodside said.
He has “extensive international experience, having worked in North and South America as well as a variety of roles around Australia,” the firm said.
Woodside CEO Meg O’Neill welcomed Tiver to Woodside’s executive leadership team in the “critical” CFO role, particularly given his close understanding of the value drivers for the energy sector.
“Graham’s demonstrated technical and financial capability, strong operational background and leadership skills will make an important contribution to Woodside and delivering ongoing value to shareholders,” she said.
