Exxon Mobil Corporation announced that Maria Jelescu Dreyfus has joined its board of directors, effective May 3, 2024. Dreyfus is CEO and founder of Ardinall Investment Management, an investment firm focused on sustainable investing and resilient infrastructure.

“With the close of our Pioneer merger, we gained a premier, tier-one Permian asset, exceptional talent and a new Board member who brings keen strategic insight,” said ExxonMobil Chairman and CEO Darren Woods. “Our boardroom, shareholders and stakeholders will greatly benefit from Maria’s experience.”

“We welcome Maria to the ExxonMobil Board as the company executes its strategy to grow shareholder value by playing a critical role in a lower-emissions future, even as we continue to provide the reliable energy and products the world needs,” said Joseph Hooley, lead independent director for Exxon Mobil Corporation. “Her deep financial background combined with her extensive work in sustainability will complement our Board’s existing skillset.”

Prior to forming Ardinall in 2017, Dreyfus spent 15 years at Goldman Sachs, where she was a portfolio manager and Managing Director in the Goldman Sachs Investment Partners Group focusing on energy, industrials, transportation and infrastructure investments across the capital structure, in both public and private markets.

Dreyfus currently serves as a Director on the board of Cadiz Inc. and on the board of CDPQ, one of Canada’s largest pension plans. She also serves as a director on several private companies’ boards in the energy transition space.

She is Vice-Chair of the advisory board of Columbia University’s Center on Global Energy Policy, and serves as Co-Chair of its Women in Energy program. Additionally, Ms. Dreyfus is a member of the MIT Corporation’s Development Committee and serves on the MIT Economics Department’s Visiting Committee. Her current nonprofit board memberships include the Global CCS Foundation, New America Alliance, and Girls Inc. of NYC.
