Halliburton Gets New CFO

Halliburton has appointed Christopher (Chris) Weber as executive vice president and chief financial officer (CFO) effective June 22, 2017.

Weber joins Halliburton from Parker Drilling Company, a provider of drilling services and rental tools, where he served for four years as senior vice president and CFO.

Previously, Weber served as the vice president and treasurer of Ensco, one of the world’s largest offshore drilling companies, where he led the company’s global Treasury and Risk Management functions.

“We are excited to have Chris join Halliburton. He complements our strong returns-focused culture, and we believe his impressive reputation for execution and achieving results makes him the right choice to lead our financial strategy,” said Jeff Miller, president and CEO of Halliburton. “His skillset fits well with the strength of our existing Finance organization and his broad range of capabilities will complement our experienced management team as we continue to deliver industry leading returns to our shareholders.”

“I want to thank Halliburton General Counsel Robb Voyles for leading both our law department and finance team as interim CFO over the past four months,” added Miller. “Taking on these dual roles was no easy task. His relentless efforts and dedication provided a seamless transition for which we are grateful.”
