Veteran Spotlight

Becky Peavler


“One of the things I liked most about the Army was the camaraderie and ‘unit first’ aspect of Solider life. When I left the military, I had the opportunity to be a consultant and work with a variety of clients in the oil and gas industry. What drew me to ConocoPhillips was the culture of how they treated people. Even as a consult I knew the support I was providing was valued and I felt like part of the team. As an employee, I have traveled to most of our global office locations and experienced the same positive teamwork culture everywhere I have visited. Now as a leader in the company, I am empowered to reinforce our People and Teamwork pillars of our SPIRIT values.”

“ConocoPhillips is a great place to work for Veterans and current Reservists. I have always been impressed with how the company lives up to it’s SPIRIT values which are well aligned with core Military Service values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. The skills and experiences I gained in the U.S. Navy has opened up many new and challenging leadership opportunities with the company and helped to advance my career at ConocoPhillips. The company has supported my involvement with establishment of the first Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post in Australia through the Employee Volunteer Grant Program and direct sponsorship of VFW events. I firmly believe that ConocoPhillips values the experience and service of military veterans and rewards hard work and commitment with outstanding career development opportunities. I highly recommend ConocoPhillips as an employer of choice for any veteran.”
