He will join the Honorable John Boehner, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Dimitri Panayotopoulos, former Vice Chairman at Procter & Gamble, and Harvey Pitt, former Chairman of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, in supporting the company’s executive leadership on matters related to corporate governance, government and regulatory affairs, commodity risk management and marketing.
