Valero Energy Corp. has elected two women — H. Paulett Eberhart and Kimberly Greene — to its board of directors, both of whom have been CEOs of companies.


Valero's (NYSE: VLO) announcement comes on the heels of reporting its second-quarter financial results, in which the San Antonio-based company saw its revenue and net income decline but nevertheless exceeded expectations.

Eberhart is chairwoman and CEO of HMS Ventures, a privately held business involved with technology services and real estate, and she previously was president and CEO of CDI Corp., which provides engineering and information technology outsourcing and professional staffing services. She also was president and CEO of Invensys Process Systems Inc., a process automation company.

Meanwhile, Kimberly Greene is executive vice president and chief operating officer of Southern Co. (NYSE: SO), an electric and gas utility company. And she previously was president and CEO of Southern Company Services Inc. She has also held multiple high-level positions at the Tennessee Valley Authority, including chief generation officer, chief financial officer, executive vice president of financial services, chief risk officer and group president for strategy and external relations.


“We are very pleased to welcome Paulett and Kim to our board, as both are outstanding additions and bring a wealth of experience and knowledge,” Valero President and CEO Joe Gorder said in a news release.


Both women also have experience serving on boards.


Eberhart, who is a certified public accountant, is on the boards of Anadarko Petroleum Corp. (NYSE: APC), Ciber Inc. (NYSE: CBR) and LPL Financial Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: LPLA).


Greene is on the board of the Electric Power Research Institute.
