Prior to her role at Newmont, Buese spent more than a decade as EVP & CFO of MarkWest  Energy Partners, a leader in gathering, processing, and transportation  of hydrocarbons, as well as EVP & CFO of MPLX (a subsidiary of  Marathon Petroleum) following MPLX’s acquisition of MarkWest.

With Buese’s appointment, Brian Worrell, CFO of Baker Hughes, will move to a strategic advisor role on November 2 and will depart the company in the second quarter of 2023.

“I want to thank Brian personally and professionally for his many years of service to the company, especially during the past six years as our CFO,” said Simonelli. “He has shown exemplary leadership and built an incredibly strong finance function,  ensuring Baker Hughes has remained a stable and leading company for our customers, shareholders and employees. Our entire team remains grateful for his leadership through many important milestones in our company’s history, including the 2017 merger with GE Oil & Gas, the COVID-19  pandemic, and our ESG progress. We wish Brian well on his future  endeavors.”
