Under the tenure of Mr. Menut, who was the president of Chevron Corporation, I oversaw the successful setting up of the company in California under a different brand name from that of its parent company in the Middle East. This opened up a private-sector approach to the oil business in this state, successfully bringing forth stiff competition. In addition, I improved and promoted accountability and utilization of good governance and ethics.

Notable Accomplishments:

  • Restructured the parent company’s operations to befit and outperform those companies already in California.
  • Represented Chevron at the OPEC convention in Nigeria that saw Chevron listed as the top oil company in 2011.
  • Improved inventory management and logistics within Chevron that saw profits in 2009 rise by close to 100%.
  • Set up an agency payment processing system that enhanced cash management and reduced payables time from 60 to 15 days. This system also reduced the resource mismanagement that was present in the previous delivery chain.
