INDUSTRY ROUNDUP When he takes office at the end of the month, President-elect Donald Trump will nominate for- mer Exxon Mobil Corp. CEO Rex Tillerson to be Secretary of State, calling him one of the most accom- plished "international dealmakers in the world." Trump pointed to Tillerson's ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin and his experience dealing with foreign governments as points in his favor. "Rex Tillerson's career is the embodiment of the American dream," Trump said in a released statement. "Through hard work, dedication and smart dealmak- ing, Rex rose through the ranks to become CEO of Exxon Mobil, one of the world's largest and most respected companies." Tillerson stated in an accompanying release that he is honored by the selection and shares Trump's "vision for restoring the credibility of the United States' foreign rela- tions and advancing our country's national security." Tillerson's connections to Putin and the CIA's recent assessment that Russia interfered with the presidential election are likely to come under scrutiny during the con- firmation process, according to senators such as Florida's Marco Rubio and South Carolina's Lindsey Graham. Tillerson, who also served as chairman of Exxon Mobil, retired from the company at the end of 2016. Darren W. Woods, who served as president of Exxon Mobil, took the reins as chairman and CEO effective Jan. 1.
