ConocoPhillips appoints for Phillips 66

ConocoPhillips has announced several future appointments to the executive management teams of the two leading energy companies that will be created when ConocoPhillips completes its strategic repositioning. Expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2012, the new ConocoPhillips will be an independent, pure-play exploration and production company. The independent downstream company, Phillips 66, will feature leading businesses in refining, marketing, midstream and chemicals. The designated chief executive officers for each company are creating new leadership teams to support the independent companies.
 
Ryan Lance, designated chairman and chief executive officer of the future ConocoPhillips, has chosen three members of his executive management team. Matt Fox will become executive vice president, exploration and production. A former president of ConocoPhillips Canada, Fox most recently served as executive vice president, international, for Nexen Inc. He holds a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering, and a master’s degree in petroleum engineering. Alan J. Hirshberg will become executive vice president, technology and projects. Hirshberg is currently senior vice president, planning and strategy, for ConocoPhillips. He holds a bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mechanical engineering. Don E. Wallette Jr. will become executive vice president, business development and commercial. Wallette is currently president, Asia Pacific, for ConocoPhillips. Wallette holds a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering. Fox will join ConocoPhillips in January 2012 and serve in an interim role, reporting to Lance, until the repositioning is complete. Hirshberg and Wallette will continue in their current positions until the transaction is finalized.
 
Greg Garland, designated chairman and chief executive officer of Phillips 66, has named a member of his executive management team. Lawrence M. Ziemba will become executive vice president, refining with responsibility for major projects and procurement. Ziemba is currently president, global refining, for ConocoPhillips.
