one of the worlds largest energy companies, known for its gasoline and natural gas endeavors. The organization itself is hierarchal, with a top-down mentality, and a conservative corporate culture. However,
an increasing emphasis on global warming and concern over a growing shortage of fuel means that ExxonMobil may have to rethink some of its efforts. The good news is that
Rex Tillerson, the companys chair and CEO, is the perfect man for the job. Corporate Governance As in most corporations, ExxonMobil has
paid executives that follow the day-to-day and big picture running of the company, and a separate board of directors that ensures that the executive staff stays on the straight and
narrow. Rex W. Tillerson is the companys chairman and CEO; Mark W. Albers is senior vice president; Michael J. Dolan senior
vice president and J. Stephen Simon, senior vice president (ExxonMobil (2), 2008). Donald D. Humphreys is senior vice president and treasurer (ExxonMobil (2), 2008).
