Williams and Williams Partners has announced the appointment of John Dearborn, a Stevens Board of Trustees member and Stevens alumnus, as senior vice president of NGL & Petchem Services. Dearborn will oversee Williams’ and Williams Partners’ natural gas liquids and olefins business and operations.
Williams and Williams Partners is a leading diversified master limited partnership focused on natural gas transportation; gathering, treating, and processing; storage; natural gas liquid (NGL) fractionation; and oil transportation. Williams’ NGL & Petchem Services operating area includes Gulf Olefins, Midstream Canada, NGL & Olefins Sales, NGL Services, Conway and Overland Pass Pipeline.
Dearborn most recently served as a senior leader for SABIC, which ranks among the world’s top petrochemical companies.
Prior to his work with SABIC in Houston, Dearborn served for a decade in a variety of leadership positions with Dow Chemical and for 20 years in several leadership roles with the Union Carbide Corporation (prior to its merger with Dow).
“John’s leadership experience in both the domestic and international petrochemicals industry is extensive and will be an important asset as we continue to focus on developing access to new markets for North America’s abundant natural gas liquids and olefins,” said Alan Armstrong, Williams president and chief executive officer.
Dearborn, 55, obtained his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in chemical engineering from Stevens and his MBA from New York University.
