New industry member brings familiar faces

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

CEBC welcomes back ExxonMobil as an industry partner. We are especially pleased to reunite with former Jayhawks who now work at ExxonMobil. (David) Ben Spry will serve on the CEBC Industry Advisory Board. He graduated from KU with a B.S. in Chemistry & Mathematics in 2004, then earned M.S. and PhD degrees from Stanford University. He is now a Chemical Engineer for ExxonMobil. Also working with CEBC is Javier Guzman, ExxonMobil group head, who was an assistant professor of Chemical Engineering at KU from 2006 to 2009. He worked for BP for a year before joining ExxonMobil in 2010. 

One of the largest companies in the world, ExxonMobil focuses on sustainable solutions based on time-tested business practices. The company has manufacturing capacity in every major region of the world.
