Nathan Lee is currently the Product Optimizer for the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast US. In this role, he is responsible to oversee the economic production, distribution, and sale of gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel for the 11 states along the Colonial/Plantation pipeline corridor. This includes all clean fuels production from the Baton Rouge refinery.
Originally from the east coast of Florida, Nathan’s career with ExxonMobil began while he was still a student at the University of Florida. In the Fall of 2004, he began working as a co-op engineer in the Safety, Health, and Environment Department at the Baytown, TX refinery, followed by a second rotation in the refinery process engineering group.
Upon completion of a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from UF in 2006, Nathan returned to the Baytown refinery as a process engineer in the lubricants area of the plant. After this initial assignment, he held a series of positions of increasing responsibility across the refinery including process engineering, production planning and economics, technical supervision and operations supervision roles.
In 2015, Nathan moved to the Spring, TX headquarters office, just outside of Houston, where he worked as an advisor to the ExxonMobil Refining and Supply President with a focus on refinery utilization and capital projects. He moved into his current role in November 2017.
Nathan and his wife of 13 years, Jennifer, have four daughters. He enjoys a variety of hobbies including gardening, hiking, and playing the bass.
