  • Baker Hughes (NYSE:BHGE) chief global operations officer Belgacem Chariag has resigned, reportedly to be replaced by Uwem Ukpong, the company's chief integration officer who oversees merger activities.
  • Chariag agreed to resign on Jan. 2 but will remain with BHGE until the end of January; Ukpong previously was a GE Oil & Gas executive and has run the company's Oil & Gas Surface business unit.
  • The shakeup comes two months after GE said it was considering shedding its 62.5% stake in BHGE in an effort to downsize the company and focus on core businesses.
