Exxon CEO voted Petroleum Executive of the Year for 2015

Rex W. Tillerson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Exxon Mobil Corporation, has been named Petroleum Executive of the Year for 2015.

According to a statement by Energy Intelligence, Tillerson was chosen for the 2015 award by a group of top global oil industry executives, and he is the 19th winner of this peer-selected honor.

“The selection of Rex Tillerson as this year’s winner reflects his highly successful leadership of Exxon Mobil, where he has further enhanced the company’s widely respected reputation for strong operational performance, financial discipline, project execution and technological innovation,” said Thomas Wallin, editor-in-chief and executive vice president of Energy Intelligence.

“Rex Tillerson was appointed Chairman and CEO of Exxon Mobil in January 2006, guiding the company successfully through a tumultuous period for the industry and maintaining Exxon Mobil’s position as the largest private sector international oil company. He previously served in a variety of roles at Exxon Mobil, including executive vice president of Exxon Mobil Development Company. Joining the company in 1975, his positions also included president of Exxon Neftegas Limited, vice president of Exxon Ventures (CIS) and president of Exxon Yemen and Esso Exploration and Production Khorat,” Energy Intelligence wrote.

The selection process for the Petroleum Executive of the Year is administered by Energy Intelligence, which gathers nominations for the award from the heads of the 100 largest oil companies as determined by the annual company rankings by Energy Intelligence in the Energy Intelligence Top 100: Global NOC & IOC Rankings. These nominations are then voted on by a special selection committee that is made up of previous award winners and other senior oil executives.

Previous winners of the Petroleum Executive of the Year Award include Emilio Lozoya Austin of Pemex (2014), Peter Voser of Royal Dutch Shell (2013), Fu Chengyu of Sinopec (2012), Jose Sergio Gabrielli de Azevedo of Petrobras (2011), Andrew Gould of Schlumberger (2010), Christophe de Margerie of Total (2009), Paolo Scaroni of Eni (2008) and H.E. Abdulla al-Attiyah of Qatar (2007).

The 36th Annual Oil & Money Conference, convened by the International New York Times and Energy Intelligence, will be held on October 6-7 in London.
