BP PLC said Friday that it is appointing Tushar Morzaria as a nonexecutive director with effect from Sept. 1.

The FTSE 100 oil major said Mr. Morzaria is currently the finance director of Barclays PLC. Previously, Mr. Morzaria worked at J.P. Morgan.

"He will bring a wealth of strong financial services expertise to bp, as well as experience in delivering corporate change programmes while maintaining a focus on performance. I look forward to Tushar joining the board and becoming an important addition to our audit committee as we navigate the next phase of bp's reinvention," Chairman Helge Lund said.
