Brazil picks Gileno Gurjao Barreto as Petrobras chairman

SAO PAULO, June 9 (Reuters) – The Brazilian government selected Gileno Gurjao Barreto on Thursday as its nominee to chair state-run oil giant Petrobras’ (PETR4.SA) board.

The Mines and Energy Ministry also confirmed Caio Mario Paes de Andrade as its nominee to be Petrobras’ chief executive.

The nominations, which still need to be approved by shareholders, come weeks after Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro ousted the company’s previous chief executive, who served less than two months on the job.
