CHEVRON HUMAN RESOURCES VP FERNANDEZ TO RETIRE; KISKIS, WOERTZ PROMOTED TO NEW POSTS

 SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Chevron Corp. (NYSE: CHV) Vice President Louis Fernandez Jr., 63, who joined the company when it merged with Gulf Corp. and directed human resources policies and activities through the difficult post-merger and 1986 price crash periods, has elected to retire effective Oct. 1.
 Ronald Kiskis, 45, President of Chevron Canada Limited for the last two years, was elected to succeed Fernandez, also Oct. 1.
 Patricia Woertz, 40, Chevron Corp.'s Manager of Strategic Planning since November 1991, will succeed Kiskis as President of Chevron Canada Limited.
 Fernandez' career in human resources before joining Chevron included more than 30 years of assignments in various locations in the United States, Venezuela and Europe. He was Vice President of Human Resources at Gulf at the time of the merger.
 Shortly after the merger was announced in March 1984, Fernandez began working on loan to what was then Standard Oil Company of California to help design programs to smooth the difficult transition for two workforces of more than 79,000. He was elected to his present position in March 1985.
 Fernandez serves on the boards of Golden Gate University, the National Conference of Christians and Jews, Federated Employers, the national and local boards of INROADS and as Chevron's representative on the National Industry Advisory Council.
 Fernandez served in the U.S. Army from 1951 to 1953, attaining the rank of sergeant. He earned a bachelor's degree in political science from Bowling Green State University, and he did graduate work at the University of Michigan Law School.
 Kiskis joined Chevron Research Company in 1974 as a chemist after earning a bachelor's degree in chemistry from the University of California at Santa Barbara and a Ph.D in organic chemistry at UC Berkeley in 1974.
 In his 19 years with the company, he has worked with virtually every type of product that Chevron manufactures, including fuels, lubricants, additives and specialty products.
 In 1980, he was named manager of the product development division of Chevron Central Laboratories in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Before assuming his current position in July 1991, he had positions of increasing responsibility at Chevron Research, and he has worked in the Comptroller's analytical group.
 Woertz joined Gulf in 1977 after graduating with a bachelor's degree in accounting from Pennsylvania State University. She is a certified public accountant, and has held positions at both Chevron and Gulf in finance, auditing and accounting.
 As a member of one of five corporate "breakthrough" project teams last year, she led the team in developing the strategic planning process now used by the company.
 In the position she assumed in 1991, Woertz became responsible for implementing the new process, evaluating company strategies for both the company's Planning Committee and its Management Committee, both of which she has served as secretary.
