Halliburton has appointed Eric Carre as its new CFO. He replaces Lance Loeffler, who has been promoted to Senior VP of Middle East and North Africa.
Halliburton has revenue of $16 billion, over 40,000 employees and a market capitalization of $32 billion.
Mr. Carre is currently the Executive VP, Global Business Lines and Chief Health, Safety and Environmental Officer. He started with Halliburton in 1991 as a Project Engineer and holds a master’s degree in mechanical engineering from Université Libre de Bruxelles in Belgium.
Mr Carre’s former role, Global Business Lines, covered the Drilling & Evaluation and Completion & Production divisions as well as Landmark & Consulting, Project Management and Global Technology. Halliburton already had Executive VPs for Drilling & Evaluation (Rami Yassine) and Completion & Production (Michael Sugura) and they remain in place. It’s not clear who now has responsibility for Landmark & Consulting, Project Management and Global Technology.
Mr. Loeffler has been CFO since November 2018. He joined Halliburton in 2014 and was VP of Corporate Development and then Investor Relations before becoming the CFO. Previously he held director positions at Deutsche Bank and UBS Investment Bank.
Presumably both Mr. Carre and Mr. Loeffler are being groomed for the CEO position at some point. Current CEO Jeff Miller has been in that position since June 2017.
No compensation arrangements have been disclosed for either Mr. Carre or Mr. Loeffler.
