Not going to be Bart Cahir, the pathetic President of XTO Energy, the leader of the Kearl of the South and the former leader of the $20+ billion worthless Kearl. He is good at giving ice cream to his employees, taking away his employees 30% COLA, PIPing his employees, ranked 6th place in the Permian and 12th place in Midlland, getting coached on how to speak, trotting out his VP on annual basis for Women's Engineering Day, wasting billions and billions and billions on Kearl and the Permian, and lying to his employees. Looks like I have hurt a nerve with this post so Go ahead and #admin me again, and again and again and I will keep posting again and again and again and again. You corrupt employers are covering yet again for a poor performing Woods syphocant.

One would argue that while the world is out to crucify oil companies, DW's tough stance hasn't helped. While people can criticize Rex's approach, he truly was able to talk to the public and to government. DW has no ability to do that and no fancy Public Affairs hire can do that. Regardless of who he worked for (Rudy Giuliani). In the interest of preserving the Company, DW needs to go; even if Neil or Jack takeover temporarily.
Who is youngest VP?
An external candidate replaces Swiger, none of you are worthy. Get back to work!
More realistic question, who replaces Swiger? His retirement should be coming soon.
If you want to cut XTO cost get rid of RTD and all the other unnecessary overhead our competitors don’t have to pay for.
He is an a$$ for cutting our COLA. No other BU screwed their employees like he did which is probably why he will be next in line. Company seems to promote the biggest a-holes.
Swiger must retire this year. Next CEO is probably under 50 years old right now and there is nine years to figure out who wins the race. Chapman, Ducharme, Williams, McKee, Mallom (all same age as DW) will all be too old to take CEO slot assuming DW stays till he is 65.
In any normal corporation, DW would be gone and they hire a competent replacement.
In Exxon’s “meritocracy”, none is deemed “ready”. The all powerful, all knowing system has plans to give executives “exposure” to roles they believe are needed to be the best clone they can be.
So we are stuck with a lame duck, who himself wasn’t “ready”
Maybe the new board will speed things up, but even then will take a year or more to pick another buffon that looks good on camera and excels at parroting back nonsense.
DW doesn’t have the dignity to call it quits. And the organization has no fortitude to shake things up.
John Gibbs? The architect of Upstream Transformation
There is a successful company in Switzerland where employees can elect the board of directors every year. The current CEO tries so hard that he is re-elected every year. And we're discussing here at Forrest Gump or Homer Simpson level ... that's terrifying. Can't someone buy us who can do better? We need real visionary leadership and not manager decalcomanias
I'm guessing your posts are getting deleted because you keep posting the same thing in different threads over and over again. Stop spamming and you'll be okay.
The tug boat captain? Oh, dear god no. Not him. He might be the worst high level executive in the company. Only he could make Sara O look intelligent.
Did the CSR guy get transferred to XTO?
If Alfred E. Newman has passed on (he must be 80 or so),
then I go with Greta T. too. She and Elon have things in common.
It’s definitely going to be Ba-f.
A complete liar and id--t.
"Oh well, XTO's costs are twice those of our competitors".
(after inserting 2 ADDITIONAL layers of useless ExxonMobil management in XTO that delivered nothing except more processes, brown-nosing, AND higher cost).
So let's just off half the technical people. Pathetic mo--n.
Likely staale, he’s on trajectory - tho equally as much a yes man as the rest. He actively knew the blob was not achievable and kept letting Dallas and IR lie to the shareholders. Will surely upvote those that conspired with him… look no further than MB in Angola. You know what you did. Go get em tiger.
Greta Thunberg will replace Darren.
Bring Lee Raymond back!
Carbon Capture? PHHH
Historically, the company has elevated an xon/xom vp to CEO around 55 so there’s a 10 year period of a steady hand. A mandatory 65 retirement for CEO.
Unless a surprise change, none of the current VPs will be of the age to become CEO.
Look for someone already on trajectory to VP who is 49 to 50 now.
Jack already lost out to Darren. No chance it’s him
Not a woman or minority, sadly.
They’ve been going back and forth between Swiger and Williams since before the DW days, but I suspect it’s Chapman
Mike Wirth !!??!! Seriously.... look at what is happening to Chevron.... going down the tubes!!
Mike Wirth Chevron CEO
@OP He’s not going anywhere anytime soon, and when he does go, he’ll be replaced by someone as bad or worse.
O&G stopped developing or attracting executive talent some time ago. It doesn’t take much skill to cut jobs every time there’s a flux in commodities prices; any old ge---r in a suit who can read & interpret a bar graph will do.
I'm on my way.
The steady hand of Jesus
Well, at least Bart has photos with the Saudis.
I nominate Elon Musk. Exxon can be the first company to drill for hydrocarbons on Mars. We can build a pipeline from the Baytown Refinery to Mars and make the US government pay for it
