Graduate Message:

Brief description of your day-to-day job at INEOS:
I’m responsible for developing long-term improvements to our feedstock supply, and for finding opportunities for commercializing our salt cavern storage facility at Stratton Ridge. In addition, I am the lead Commercial contact for the b2b relationship between INEOS O&P and INEOS Oligomers at Chocolate Bayou. I’m also currently working on developing a 40 MW solar farm at Chocolate Bayou, part of INEOS’ sustainability efforts.

Your interests, hobbies (sport and otherwise!), special skills...
I have been involved in competitive running, cycling and triathlon for 30 years. I enjoy triathlon most of all, and have completed two full Ironman races and a dozen Half Ironman races. To fuel these endeavor's I have developed an interest in cooking, and every good meal needs a good beer or wine pairing!

What are you most looking forward to about the Namibia trip?
First of all, just being there in that environment that so few get a chance to experience. Beyond that, I look forward to the end of each day’s activities, when we each get to celebrate our successes as a team.

What are you most apprehensive about?
Despite living in Houston for over 25 years now, I still struggle with heat. I’m ready to take it slow and steady, and focus on hydration and nutrition in order to get through it.

What do you hope to achieve from the challenge?
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I really just want to come away with unforgettable memories, stories, and the sense that I helped the grads achieve their goals.

Anything else you'd like to share?
I remember the first day I heard about the IN NAM challenge, and I thought it sounded incredible. I’m excited that it is finally my time to experience it first-hand.

Graduate Message:

Brief description of your day-to-day job at INEOS:
Part of the board of Project One, responsible for financial reporting, budgeting & estimating, funding, compliance, project control, risk management and IT. Day-to-day I spend most of my life on the telephone!
For my wider INEOS role, wherever there is external debt, I’m likely to be behind it. I’ve been involved with raising debt of INEOS for nearly twenty years.

Your interests, hobbies (sport and otherwise!), special skills...
I’m married with three children (18, 15, 15), all very sporty. Outside work and being the family taxi service, I swim, run and cycle, all to varying degrees of incompetence.

What are you most looking forward to about the Namibia trip?
Chance to focus on a new challenge and mixing more with the younger end of INEOS.

What are you most apprehensive about?
Always being at the back.

What do you hope to achieve from the challenge?
Survival is at the top of the list, beyond that some excellent memories would be good.

Anything else you'd like to share?
I tend to fall off my bike a lot, but mostly when I’m standing still. Don’t worry, I usually get back up again.
