"For more than three decades, Glenn Tilton provided outstanding leadership at Texaco and most recently at ChevronTexaco," said David J. O'Reilly, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ChevronTexaco. "He has played a major role in our successful merger and deserves considerable credit for the progress we've made so far. On a personal note, Glenn is an individual of exceptional integrity, and his experience and wisdom have been invaluable to me and to our entire leadership team. I know all of our colleagues join me in wishing him the best in his new role."
Tilton said, "Although I'm very eager to take on this new opportunity, my excitement is tempered by the realization that I'll be leaving the great company where I have spent my entire career. Fortunately, I can leave with complete confidence that the men and women of ChevronTexaco, under Dave O'Reilly's leadership, are well positioned to take full advantage of the company's tremendous potential. Dave and his leadership team have provided a clear vision of what the combined company can accomplish, and it has been a great pleasure to work with him and everyone at the company toward that goal."
