Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LLC today announced that Scott Sharp, executive vice president, projects & environmental, health, safety and security (EHS&S), will retire after 42 years of distinguished service with Chevron Phillips Chemical and Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX). During his tenure with Chevron Phillips Chemical, Sharp oversaw operations at the company’s joint ventures in Qatar and led the successful completion of its U.S. Gulf Coast expansion projects in Baytown and Old Ocean, Texas. Most recently, he played an instrumental role in developing and advancing potential growth projects in the U.S. and Qatar.
“Scott has been an influential leader across our global operations, and his unrelenting focus on safe, reliable operations leaves a tremendous legacy. We thank him for his many contributions to Chevron Phillips Chemical and wish him the best in retirement,” said Chevron Phillips Chemical CEO Bruce Chinn.
In conjunction with Sharp’s retirement, the company also announced the realignment of executive leadership responsibilities as follows, effective Nov 1, 2021:
Elliott Johnson, currently vice president, EHS&S, will join the company’s executive leadership team as senior vice president, EHS&S, reporting to Chinn. Johnson has 23 years of experience with the company in operations and technical positions across multiple domestic manufacturing facilities, including as plant manager at the company’s facility in Orange, Texas, and operations manager at the Cedar Bayou facility.
“Elliott’s extensive experience in manufacturing, disciplined approach to operations and environmental responsibility, and passion for the safety of our people and communities position him well to lead our EHS&S organization,” said Chinn.
Steve Prusak, senior vice president, corporate planning and technology, will assume additional responsibility for the company’s projects organization, which includes overseeing the development of expansion projects in the U.S. and Qatar. Prusak has 31 years of industry experience and has held commercial, project and strategy roles during his tenure with Chevron Phillips Chemical.
