Williams (NYSE: WMB) today named Jim Scheel to senior vice president of corporate strategic development, with responsibility for enterprise-level business development and customer relationship management.

Scheel most recently served as vice president of business development for Williams' midstream business. During his more than two decades with Williams, Scheel has served in leadership roles that include business and strategic development; operations and engineering; more than $4 billion in transactions and business integrations; the company's natural gas liquids business; and management of international and joint-venture operations.

"Jim's leadership will be an important asset as we focus and accelerate our business development – both organic and acquisition – around the abundant energy-infrastructure opportunities Williams is positioned to capture," said Alan Armstrong, president and chief executive officer.

Scheel, 47, is a petroleum engineering graduate of the University of Tulsa.

Scheel's appointment follows the company's announcement earlier this month that Phil Wright will retire on April 1.
