CHEVRON Philippines, Inc. has appointed petroleum industry expert Billy Liu as the firm’s new country chairman and general manager to lead its downstream business, the company said on Thursday.
Mr. Liu is currently managing the marketing of transportation fuels, finished lubricants, and coolants for commercial and retail sales under Chevron’s international fuels and lubricants segment.
“I am truly delighted to be at the helm of Chevron’s business in the country… We will continue to drive our long-lived mission of supplying fuels and lubricants to meet the nation’s fuel and economic demands, while upholding our social responsibilities,” Mr. Liu said in a statement.
He expressed optimism that retail sites of the Caltex brand, primarily marketed by Chevron, will grow by the end of the year.
“This year, Caltex has so far opened 21 retail sites, a figure that is still expected to increase before 2020 ends,” he said.
Mr. Liu has succeeded Louie Zhang who recently retired from the company after 31 years of service. — Angelica Y. Yang
