Saudi Aramco has appointed Amin Nasser as company president. Nasser has been acting president and CEO at Saudi Aramco since April, assuming the role from Khaled al-Falih following his appointment as Saudi Aramco’s chairman by Saudi Arabia’s King Salman.
Nasser has also served Saudi Aramco as senior vice president for upstream operations since 2008. He joined the company in 1982 after earning a bachelor's degree in petroleum engineering from King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) in Dhahran.
The decision to appoint Nasser as president was made at the first meeting of Saudi Aramco’s recently established Supreme Council in Jeddah under the chairmanship of HRH Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, Second Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Defense, Chairman of the Council of Economic Affairs and Development, and Chairman of Saudi Aramco’s Supreme Council. The 10-member Supreme Council was formed earlier this year after King Salman abolished the Supreme Petroleum Council.
