Having started his career with Conoco in the routing office at Immingham 45 years ago, Pete George, now managing director of UK & Ireland marketing at Phillips 66, is to retire.
Pete’s career began in 1970 when he began taking orders from customers and allocating work to what were then the company’s in-house drivers.
In the course of his career with Conoco, ConocoPhillips and Phillips 66, Pete has had 14 different roles in several locations. In addition to Immingham he has also worked in London, Slough, Manchester, an 18 month training stint that included Kingsbury, Cliffe (Kent), Tyneside and London, back to Immingham, Harrogate, Warwick, Brussels and then Warwick again!
Speaking about the variety across his 14 roles Pete said it had been a joy getting to know the company’s customers.
“Our customers have diverse backgrounds and businesses and it has been a joy getting to know them and building relationships over the years.”
Asked what he hoped would be his legacy, he added:  “An organisation that has a great attitude towards getting things done efficiently by helping and supporting each other.
“No egos, no politics – that’s what our customers demand and they are the reason we are here.”
Mary Wolf will be taking on the role of managing director, UK & Ireland Marketing with effect from 2nd October 2015.
