We look forward to benefiting from their knowledge and guidance.”

ConocoPhillips stated the company’s director count has risen to 13 with the addition of Seaton and Walker, also noting that 12 board members are independent. It added that Seaton and Walker will serve on the board’s Public Policy and Finance committees.

In addition to his membership on the ConocoPhillips board, Seaton sits on the boards of The Mosaic Co. and the National Association of Manufacturers and chairs the National Board of Governors of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, ConocoPhillips stated.
