At ConocoPhillips, Frederickson served in leadership roles including general manager for refining and marketing in Europe and as managing director for Conoco Ireland.

These qualities make Philip an ideal addition to our board and we look forward to working with him."

Frederickson holds a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering from Texas Tech University, where he was recognized as a distinguished engineer in 2004.
