Newfield Exploration Co. of The Woodlands, Texas recently appointed long-time accounting and finance professional Edgar Giesinger to its board of directors as its 10th member.
Previously a partner with KPMG LLP, Giesinger advised clients, tended to strategic planning, and oversaw partner compensation, HR and legal and regulatory matters in that firm’s Houston locale. He also sits on two additional boards: Solaris Oilfield Infrastructure Inc. and Geospace Technologies Corp.
"Bud's 36 years of accounting and finance experience at KPMG will be an important asset to Newfield," Lee Boothby, Newfield’s president and CEO, said. "We look forward to his guidance not only around financial matters, but also the insight and experience he will contribute to strategy, legal and regulatory issues. Bud joins an active and engaged Board and we look forward to his immediate impact."
A certified public accountant with membership in several professional associations, Giesinger earned a BBA in accounting from the University of Texas.
“Newfield has a clear vision — to be recognized as the premier independent E&P company delivering operational excellence, top tier business results and value to our shareholders, employees and the communities in which we live and work,” company spokespersons said on the firm’s website.
Newfield was named among the region’s top workplaces by the Houston Chronicle in 2016. The company manages sites in Oklahoma, North Dakota and Utah as well as offshore.
