“Dina is a distinguished executive with a rare level of geopolitical, national security and economic experience,” said Exxon Chairman and CEO Darren Woods. “She has served two U.S. presidents in diplomatic and national security roles and, more recently, led Goldman Sachs’ sustainability efforts, a useful combination of experiences for the ExxonMobil boardroom.”
