He began his career with Phillips Petroleum Company as a research engineer.
Reporting to Garland, Lashier will have responsibility for operational execution across all of Phillips 66 businesses — which include Refining, Midstream, and Marketing & Specialties — and also for the company's health, safety and environmental efforts. With Lashier's addition to the Phillips 66 leadership team, Garland will further focus on the company's strategic direction, disciplined capital allocation and engagement with key stakeholders on issues facing the energy industry.
"Mark is a trusted leader with a demonstrated track record of delivering growth, driving excellence in both operations and sustainable business practices," said Garland. "He possesses the right combination of values, skills and experience that makes him a clear choice to be our President and COO."
