“We look forward to her contributions as we continue to execute the company’s value proposition to deliver double-digit returns to our shareholders.”

Mulligan also serves on the board of Lattice Engines and serves as an advisor to numerous other technology companies.

The latest appointment increases the number of ConocoPhillips directors to 11, ten of which are independent. Apart from her role on the board, Mulligan will serve on ConocoPhillips’ Audit and Finance Committee and the Public Policy Committee.
