CHICAGO -- Chevron Corp. executive Elizabeth "Betsy” Hosick has been elevated from vice chair to board chair of the Network of Executive Women (NEW). Hosick, who has previously served as the network’s secretary and treasurer, is general manager, SCM, for downstream, midstream and services for Chevron Corp., San Ramon, Calif. Hosick will work with other network officers and board members to provide strategic direction for Chicago-based NEW.

"Betsy is a respected leader inside and outside of Chevron,” said Joan Toth, president and CEO of NEW. "Her keen dedication to our mission to recruit, retain and advance women in the consumer-products and retail industry is unsurpassed. She’s a true change agent, and her leadership is invaluable.”

Hosick joined Chevron in 1996 and has served in roles of increasing responsibility, including global group category manager, marketing; vice president of Foodini’s Inc.; manager of convenience-store retailing; general manager of midstream procurement; and general manager of strategic capability.

She has received numerous awards, including the coveted Chairman’s Award recognizing her as "Better than the Best,” and industry awards recognizing her as an innovative leader in category management. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in integrated supply chain from University of Phoenix and a supply-chain certificate from Arizona State University.

Hosick replaces former board chair Catherine Lindner, who has "resigned to take a demanding new role as chief marketing and merchant officer of Shelfbucks Inc.,” Toth said. "We thank Catherine for her long service to the network. Her leadership and vision on NEW 2020, the network’s research initiative that is transforming our programming and networking and learning tools, will have a long-lasting impact.”
