Marathon Oil Appoints Deanna Jones Vice President of Human Resources

Marathon Oil Corporation (MRO) announced Monday that the Company's board of directors has elected Deanna L. Jones vice president of Human Resources and Administrative Services, effective Jan. 27. Jones succeeds Robert L. Sovine who retired from Marathon Oil on Jan. 1, after 33 years of service.

Jones, 45, most recently served as vice president of Human Resources and chief commercial officer for Newfield Exploration Co in Houston. Prior to that, she held a number of senior management positions with Schlumberger from 1993 until 2010 in that company's Houston, London and Calgary offices.

"We are very pleased to welcome Deanna to the Marathon Oil leadership team and look forward to the contributions she will make in leading the many dimensions of our Company's human resource activities," said Lee M. Tillman, Marathon Oil president and CEO. "Our ability to attract, develop and retain talented and skilled employees is fundamental to the creation of shareholder value. Under Deanna's guidance, we will continue building a diverse, values-based work environment where employees can realize their full potential, and in turn, Marathon Oil's success.

"We also want to recognize and thank Bob for his dedicated service spanning more than three decades," added Tillman. "Attracting and retaining talented employees on a global scale is central to our ability to achieve our business goals and create shareholder value. Marathon Oil has been able to accomplish this under Bob's distinguished leadership, which has been guided by an unwavering commitment to our core values. We wish Bob and his family the very best for good health and much happiness in the coming years."
