Jan 22 (Reuters) - Apache Corp on Thursday named Stephen Riney, a former executive with BP Plc, as its chief financial officer.
The announcement comes two days after the Houston-based oil and gas company said its Chief Executive Officer Steve Farris retired and named company veteran John Christmann to that job.
Riney, who will start in February, replaces Alfonso Leon, who resigned in October eight months after he was appointed as CFO. Riney most recently served as CFO of BP’s exploration and production unit, Apache said. (Reporting by Anna Driver)
