Phillips 66 leadership team announced

ConocoPhillips disclosed new details Wednesday about the executives who will be leading its refining, pipeline and chemical company once it is spun off next year.

Greg Garland, named previously as CEO of that downstream company, Phillips 66, announced three more members of the team that will lead the firm:

  • Greg Maxwell, who will be the chief financial officer. Maxwell has been serving as senior vice president, chief financial officer and controller of Chevron Phillips Chemical Co.
  • Tim Taylor, who will lead commercial, marketing, transportation and business development for Phillips 66. Taylor has been serving as Chevron Phillips Chemical’s chief operating officer.
  • Chantal Veevaete, who will lead the company’s human resources department. Now a vice president of human resources for Chevron Phillips Chemical, Veevaete also previously served as vice president of human resources for a division of Medco Health Solutions.

In a statement announcing the new management team, Garland praised the trio as bringing “a wealth of industry experience, credibility and leadership skills to Phillips 66.”

The new executives are set to join ConocoPhillips temporarily early next year, while the spinoff is under way. Taylor will be on board in January, while Maxwell and Veevaete are set to join the company in February.

ConocoPhillips has already rolled out other hires. Last month, ConocoPhillips gave details on the team that would be leading the upstream E&P company after the split and said Lawrence Ziemba would take over as Phillips 66’s executive vice president of refining.

The tax-free spin-off of Phillips 66 is set to be completed during the second quarter of 2012. The move will make the refining company the second largest standalone refiner in the United States, behind San Antonio-based Valero.

At the same time, the newly divided ConocoPhillips will rank sixth among non-government owned global exploration and production firms.
