Logo of Phillips 66. “We are standing on the shoulders of giants,” said Phillips 66 CEO Greg Garland. “People like E. W. Marland, who started Marland Oil in 1911, and Frank and L. E. Phillips that started Phillips Petroleum in 1917. I could go on and on and list the giants that have come before us that have so well positioned this company for the success that we enjoy today.”[1] Photo: ConocoPhillips

Garland, chairman and chief executive officer of Phillips 66. “This property is conveniently located in the Westchase District and a location that aligns with our commitment to making our company a great place to work.” Once ground is broken at the new site, construction is expected to take between 24-36 months.[4]
