EOG Resources Inc. said William R. (Bill) Thomas has been promoted to president and Gary L. Thomas has been promoted to COO. The men will report to CEO Mark Papa until June 2013, when Papa will retire and be succeeded by Bill Thomas. “Although I will continue in my role as day-to-day hands-on chairman and CEO through 2012, I plan to gradually turn over my responsibilities to Bill Thomas six months before I retire,” Papa said. “I am very comfortable transitioning my leadership role to Bill and our very experienced, long-tenured and exceptionally talented team.” Bill Thomas formerly was senior vice president of exploration and has worked for EOG for 32 years. Gary Thomas, formerly senior executive vice president of operations, has been an EOG employee for 33 years. “I consider a key responsibility of an effective chairman is managing a seamless executive transition,” said Papa. “I certainly intend to accomplish that goal. Bill and Gary both exhibit what I characterize as ‘EOG DNA.’ Reflecting EOG’s corporate culture, they are innovative, share a great sense of urgency and are dedicated to working together to make EOG an even more successful company in the future.”
