Exxon Mobil Corporation’s board of directors has elected David S. Rosenthal as vice president and controller and Jeffrey J. Woodbury as vice president of investor relations and secretary, effective Sept. 1.

Rosenthal, 58, is currently vice president of investor relations and secretary. He began his career with Exxon in 1979 as a financial analyst at Exxon Chemical Americas in Houston, Texas.

After holding a variety of financial and management positions of increasing responsibility in Exxon Chemical Americas and Exxon Company U.S.A., Rosenthal was appointed finance and administration manager of Exxon's copper mining subsidiary in Santiago, Chile in 1994. He became financial reporting manager for Exxon Corporation in 1997 and the following year was made finance and administration manager for Exxon Exploration Company.

Rosenthal became controller of ExxonMobil Production Company in 2002 and was assistant controller for Exxon Mobil Corporation for two years prior to being elected to his current position in 2008.

A native of Denver, Colorado, Rosenthal is a graduate of the University of Georgia, where he received both a bachelors and masters degree in business administration. He is a member of Financial Executives International.

Woodbury, 54, is currently vice president of safety, security, health and environment for Exxon Mobil Corporation.

He joined Exxon Corporation in 1983 as a reservoir engineer in Los Angeles, California and held various technical, planning, operations and management positions with Exxon Company USA, Esso Australia and ExxonMobil Production Company.

In 2001, Woodbury became president of ExxonMobil Canada and production manager for Eastern Canada before moving to Moscow in 2003, where he was president for ExxonMobil Russia. In 2005, Woodbury was appointed vice president for engineering at ExxonMobil Production Company and in 2007 as vice president for LNG Infrastructure for ExxonMobil Development Company.

He was named executive vice president of ExxonMobil Development Company in 2009 and appointed to his current role in 2011.

Woodbury graduated from the University of Southern California with both a bachelors and masters of science degree in petroleum engineering.

He is board chairman of the National Safety Council, is on the board of councilors of the University of Southern California Viterbi School of Engineering and is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers.
