Phillips 66 Lubricants, one of the largest finished lubricants suppliers in North America, recently announced that Ann Oglesby, a 25-year veteran of the oil and natural gas industry who most recently served as Phillips 66's vice president, Communications and Public Affairs, has been named the new general manager of Phillips 66 Lubricants.
"I'm honored to have this opportunity and look forward to continuing our strong commitment of providing our customers with trusted and proven lubricants," said Oglesby. "Together with our employees and customers, I will work tirelessly to ensure Phillips 66 remains the valued industry leader it is today in the Lubricants industry."
After 11 years in the division's top role, Tom Liberti will transition into a different leadership role within the company.
"Phillips 66 has been successful in the Lubricants and Base Oil businesses in large part due to the exceptional customers and suppliers, as well as talented employees, that I have had the pleasure to work with over the last decade," said Liberti. "I am excited about the future of our business under Ann's leadership. She's the right person to grow Phillips 66 Lubricants to the heights we envision."
