Richard Dealy, currently Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer (CFO), has been named President and Chief Operating Officer.

Rich has been an invaluable leader in many roles during his 28 years with the Company. He initially joined Parker and Parsley, a predecessor to Pioneer, in 1992. Rich graduated with honors from Eastern New Mexico University with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Accounting and Finance.

Neal Shah, currently Vice President (VP), Investor Relations, has been named Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. Neal has served as VP, Investor Relations since joining Pioneer in 2017 and has been instrumental in shaping and communicating the Company's corporate strategy. He has over 15 years of experience in finance and investment management including VP at Nuveen Asset Management, as well as financial positions at various investment banks. Neal earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Louisiana State University and holds a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.

Elizabeth McDonald, currently Vice President, Permian Strategic Planning and Field Development (SPFD), has been named Senior Vice President, SPFD and Marketing.

Beth holds a Bachelor of Science in Petroleum Engineering from Texas A&M University in College Station.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Scott D. Sheffield stated, "When I returned as CEO in 2019 it was clear the shale model was undergoing a rapid transformation. Pioneer responded by evolving its business strategy, culminating in the new investment framework we outlined in August that focused on strong returns, low leverage, significant free cash flow and return of capital to shareholders. These management changes enhance Pioneer's ability to execute our plan, driving value for shareholders.

I would like to recognize Rich, Neal and Beth on their new appointments. Their collective experience, commitment and impact to Pioneer have been pivotal in securing Pioneer's leading operational and financial position. I look forward to working with Rich, Neal and Beth in their new roles over the coming years. I am confident that Pioneer has a bright future as we work to supply low-cost energy to the world while adhering to the highest environmental standards."
