Canadian business executive Jim Gallogly has been named as the new CEO of polyolefin supplier LyondellBasell.

Gallogly was most recently executive vice president of exploration and production at ConocoPhillips. From 2000 to 2006, he was president and CEO of Chevron Phillips Chemical Company.

“LyondellBasell boasts a heritage of innovation and excellence and a global footprint that makes it one of the elite participants in the chemicals and polymers market,” Gallogly said.  

“Jim is a highly respected executive in the polymers, chemicals and fuels industries and experienced in successfully navigating the cyclical challenges of these businesses,” said LyondellBasell supervisory board chairman Len Blavatnik.
