With almost 30 years in the oil industry with ExxonMobil, Heather joined EM in 1989 from KPMG where she qualified as a Chartered Accountant. In 2007, Heather moved into Fuels & Lubricants Marketing IT, as an account manager bridging the gaps between the business departments and their IT service providers. Much of her work was in the area of data polling and processing from the European service stations for Wetstock Management and Financial Reconciliations for billing and accounting purposes. For the last seven years with EM, Heather was the Business IT Manager for Fuels & Lubricants for EAME region. A significant part of this role was the custodian of all of the contractual relationships with Retail Technology vendors for forecourt equipment. She also worked very closely with the Cards and Loyalty FEP vendors who processed millions of transactions on behalf of the company each year.
Heather’s role also included being a stakeholder on all Retail Projects involving IT, mostly all of them – either representing or supporting the business. One of her last and favourite projects to be involved in was the development and roll-out of the mobile payment and loyalty app in the UK market.
