Mr. Jack has been involved with materials and corrosion issues in the refining and chemical process industries since 1981.  His 35-year pre-E2G career was roughly split between Chevron and Phillips 66.  The Chevron and Phillips 66 work experience provided a good mix of in-plant and corporate assignments, enabling a highly experienced and practical approach to solving materials and corrosion problems.

Just prior to retiring from Phillips 66 and joining E2G in 2016, Mr. Jack served as the Chief Materials and Corrosion Engineer for the Phillips 66 Refining System (14 refineries worldwide).  In this role, Mr. Jack led system-wide mechanical integrity improvement efforts, trained numerous inspectors and engineers, and helped solve a wide array of refinery corrosion and metallurgy problems.

Mr. Jack has been active in industry consensus standards organizations such as NACE International and the American Petroleum Institute for over 35 years and has served as a working member and in lead roles in these organizations.
