Mr. Miller will step down as the Company’s Executive Chairman simultaneous with the completion of the spin off in order to become the Executive Chairman of that publicly traded distribution company.

Mr. Williams has served as a member of the Company’s Board of Directors since November 2013 and as the Company’s President and Chief Operating Officer since December 2012. He previously served as the Company’s Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

Pete Miller stated, “I elected to step down early as Chief Executive Officer in order to smooth the transition. I am confident that NOV has the right leadership for the future and I felt that it was important to let Clay and his team start as soon as possible. I look forward to working with Clay and the management team as the Company’s Executive Chairman.”

Clay Williams remarked that "Pete has built an incredible organization at National Oilwell Varco, one that has benefitted our customers, suppliers, employees and shareholders. He has been an inspiring leader for our team, and I look forward to building upon the traditions of diligence and excellence that have been created here.”
