Jeanne Johns, head of safety and operational risk at BP‘s refining and marketing businesses, has been appointed to the board of directors at Parsons Corp.
The 25-year BP veteran also has chaired a joint venture between BP and two China-based energy companies and holds a background in international business development, Parsons said Tuesday.
“As we continue our journey to build a bigger and better Parsons we are extremely fortunate to have Jeanne join our board,” said Chuck Harrington, chairman and CEO at Parsons.
“Given her broad experience in manufacturing, coupled with her leadership abilities and technical skills, she is an ideal addition.”
Johns also serves as chair of BP’s Women’s International Network and was recognized by the Manufacturing Institute with the 2014 Women in Manufacturing STEP (Science, Technology, Engineering and Production) award.
“I am excited about working with the Parsons board of directors to identify growth opportunities to help guide and shape the direction of the corporation,” Johns said.
