Motiva Names New President and CEO

Refiner-marketer picks former Andeavor/Tesoro executive to lead company

HOUSTON -- Brian Coffman, former senior vice president of refining for Andeavor, has been named president and CEO of Motiva Enterprises LLC. He replaces Dan Romasko, who has led Motiva for the past four years.

Coffman brings with him experience in business growth, operations, strategy and margin delivery.

“I’ve watched as Motiva has made significant strides over the last four years to transform its business through focused improvement efforts under Dan’s leadership,” said Coffman. “I am thrilled to be part of the journey ahead for Motiva as we explore new opportunities for growth and development.”

Since Dec. 2013, Coffman has provided strategic operational leadership to the refineries within the Andeavor (formerly Tesoro Corp.) portfolio. Prior to that, he spent 30 years with Conoco in a variety of domestic and foreign leadership roles in refining, transportation, pipeline, marketing and strategy and planning.

Coffman is a veteran who served eight years in the U.S. Air Force and Utah Air National Guard before beginning his career in the oil and gas industry.

Romasko was also a former executive vice president of operations for San Antonio-based Tesoro Corp.

Based in Houston, Motiva refines, distributes and markets petroleum products throughout the United States. It owns and operates North America’s largest refinery in Port Arthur, Texas. Under exclusive, long-term brand licenses with Shell and Phillips 66 (for the 76 Brand), Motiva’s marketing operations support more than 5,000 gas stations. Motiva is wholly owned by affiliates of Saudi Aramco.
