SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 11, 1998 -- Chevron Corp. today announced the appointment of Greg Matiuk, vice president of strategic planning and quality, to head the company's human resources and quality functions, effective Feb. 15.

John Watson, recently named head of a new corporate mergers and acquisitions group, will succeed Matiuk as vice president of strategic planning, including the mergers and acquisitions function.

Matiuk succeeds Ron Kiskis, former vice president of human resources, who was recently appointed to lead a new Caspian Action Team which will initiate ways to increase Chevron's growth in the Caspian Sea region, where the company operates the Tengizchevroil joint venture.

"These appointments further focus our management team on areas that will provide greater value for Chevron's shareholders," said Chevron Chairman Ken Derr.

Matiuk began his career with Chevron in 1967 as a production and reservoir engineer in Chevron U.S.A.'s western operations, and held positions of increasing responsibility at company locations in California, Alaska, Australia and Africa.
