ExxonMobil's McGill Elected Vice Chair of USCIB

U.S. Council for International Business

Stuart R. McGill, senior vice president with ExxonMobil Corp., was recently elected vice chairman of the U.S. Council for International Business (USCIB), a pro-trade group based in New York City.

"For global companies like ExxonMobil, USCIB's value lies in its focus on policy and regulatory issues worldwide" said McGill. "I am delighted to be able to carry forward ExxonMobil's leadership position in a group that plays a vanguard role in improving conditions for doing business around the world."

USCIB representatives, who met last month with McGill to review the organization's structure and priorities, expressed high hopes for the partnership.

"Stuart McGill's considerable international experience makes him an excellent person to take on this role," said Peter M. Robinson, president of USCIB. "His support for our organization will further strengthen our activities to promote global business."

A native of Australia, McGill holds a bachelor's degree and a doctorate in chemical engineering from Sydney University. He began his career as an engineer with Esso Australia Ltd. in 1969. His work with Esso and later Exxon and ExxonMobil has taken him all over the world, including Kuala Lumpur where he was made managing director of Esso Production Malaysia Inc. in 1980.

He has held several positions since then, including chairman and managing director of Esso Australia Ltd., president of Exxon Co. International with responsibility for Supply, Transportation, and Middle East Producer Relations, chief executive officer of Esso Holding Co. Holland Inc., and of Esso B.V.

In 1994 he became executive vice president (and later president) of Exxon Co. International with responsibility for Exxon's oil and gas activities outside the United States and Canada. Subsequent to the ExxonMobil merger, he was appointed president of ExxonMobil Gas & Power Marketing Co. and was appointed president of ExxonMobil Production Co. in July 2003. In October 2004, McGill was named senior vice president for the corporation.

McGill is a fellow of the Institution of Chemical Engineers and a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers.

Exxon Mobil Corp. is the world's largest publicly traded oil company, conducting business in nearly 200 countries and territories.
