EVOLVE, a non-competitive learning opportunity for E&P students in the cloud, named ConocoPhillips Subsurface Vice President Ken Tubman as its Executive Board chairman.
Tubman has held various subsurface leadership positions at ConocoPhillips, including in the Exploration and Technology organizations. He brings technical and leadership expertise to the board, and is a strong advocate for cultivating high-performance teams. “The board includes an impressive group of balanced representation from different energy companies and universities, as well as from SEG and SPE,” said Tubman. “This mix will provide a lot of excellent ideas and viewpoints for making great recommendations for the program.”
EVOLVE’s broad yet novel model with an independent baseline of best practices for each discipline results in an enriched interaction and promotes cross-disciplinary training. “The EVOLVE students enter our industry in a more sophisticated manner because of their experiences from working with real datasets in a non-competitive team atmosphere,” Tubman added. “It’s a professional win for students, academia, and industry.”
