Baker Hughes said on Friday Abdulaziz M. Al Gudaimi has been elected as a director, beginning Jan. 1, 2024, on the company's board, expanding it to 10 members from nine.

Gudaimi was at Saudi Aramco for 38 years, retiring as its executive vice president of corporate development in November last year, a position he held since September 2020.

Baker Hughes, in a regulatory filing, said Gudaimi would qualify to be a non-employee director, and would be independent under corporate governance requirements.
