2013 Oilfield A-List: Mitch Mamoulides

Oilfield A-lister Mitch Mamoulides brings passion, results, and a whole lot more to the Chevron family and beyond<br> <br> <br>
MIDLAND -- Loyalty.  It's a word that can easily describe long-time Chevron employee Mitch Mamoulides. According to his peers, he's a man devoted to his job, his fellow employees, his family and his community.

After graduating from Louisiana State University with a degree in mechanical engineering, he got a job with Texaco where he worked his way up from production engineer to asset team manager. "Chevron acquired Texaco in 2001 and that's when I was first named area manager here in the Permian Basin," said Mamoulides.

He's now been with Chevron for 29 years, currently serving as the Midland and Delaware Basin area manager.

 "We've got several million acres and several thousand wells. Several hundred fields those wells are in and, right now, we've got some significant drilling campaigns going on," he said.

While it's a challenging job, working for Chevron allows Mamoulides the opportunity to work for a company that makes safety a top priority. He gets to work with people across the globe, and he has access to state-of-the-art, world-class technology.

"Working for a company like Chevron gives you the opportunity to see the cutting edge in terms of technology and tools that we use in this industry," he said. "A number of those are developed here that we use all over the world."

While his job keeps Mamoulides working around the clock, he still finds time for his family and for a community that he loves. In fact, when given the opportunity to live in Midland or Houston, he chose the Tall City. "Life is just easier here. There's less traffic. There's better weather. We enjoy being part of the community. I think that's a big piece of it," he said. "You can volunteer anywhere, but you really feel like you make a difference in a town like Midland."
   
Not only does he enjoy volunteering and serving on his own time, he stresses the importance of giving back to fellow employees, and it's paying off in a big way. According to Mamoulides, "Our employees donated over $200,000 themselves last year to what we call a "Human Kind Campaign" which is non-profits in the community and then the company matches that."
   
According to his peers, that is one of many milestones they may have not met without Mamoulides' leadership.

"What we've been able to do with outreach...he's just so passionate in giving back that he does challenge us and he challenges me," said Dolores Vick, Chevron community affairs coordinator.

It's one of many reasons Chevron and the Permian Basin wouldn't be the same without Mamoulides and his loyalty to every aspect of his job and his life.
