Jet’s retail marketing manager Patrick Hudson is leaving ConocoPhillips after nearly 28 years with the company – including 10 years in his current role.
Following a consolidation of Jet’s UK sales and marketing teams – restructuring its sales organisation into national and regional teams – Lindsey Grant has taken on the role of manager for national sales, and Guy Pulham has been appointed manager for regional sales.
Lindsey Grant joined ConocoPhillips in 1996 and has held a number of national, marketing and business development roles, most recently in ConocoPhillips’ commercial business. Guy Pulham has 23 years of experience having worked in a variety of roles including transport, retail strategy and customer support at ConocoPhillips. As part of the same restructuring exercise, Geoff Patching, retail sales manager, is also leaving the business.
During Hudson’s years as retail marketing manager, he has overseen Jet’s transition from a retail chain with both company-owned and dealer sites to becoming the first dealer-only fuel brand.
Patrick said: “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time in the retail forecourt industry working with its dealer customers to see the Jet brand develop and transform into what it is today.
“I count myself very fortunate to have worked for ConocoPhillips but after 10 years in the role, it’s the right time for me to embrace new challenges. I’m confident that the new team will continue to build on Jet’s position as a strong competitor in the market.”
Stefan Wulkan, ConocoPhillips UK and Ireland marketing manager, said: “This restructure reflects industry changes, particularly the increasing move towards consolidation in the market and will enable the Jet brand to become the supplier of choice. I would like to thank both Patrick and Geoff on behalf of ConocoPhillips for their hard work and wish them all the best for the future.”
