Occidental Petroleum Corp. (NYSE:OXY) has elected the Hon. Elisse B. Walter, former chairman of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to the company’s Board of Directors.

Walter spent more than two decades of her career at the SEC. She served as senior executive vice president, Regulatory Policy and Programs, for the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).

Walter holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics, cum laude, from Yale University and a JD, cum laude, from Harvard Law School.
