Adam and Kristin Bymaster, 2004 CBME graduates, have established the Bymaster Endowed Scholarship taking advantage of ExxonMobil’s matching gift program for employees. Recently, we had the opportunity to ask the Bymasters about their time at OU, their careers with ExxonMobil and why they chose an endowed scholarship as the vehicle for giving back to the University of Oklahoma.
How did you (Kristin) arrive at your current role at ExxonMobil?
My career began with three internships at ExxonMobil, which were found using OU’s Career Services department and through OU’s Minority Engineering Program. Upon completion of my bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering, I was hired full-time by ExxonMobil in May of 2004. I have held multiple positions, beginning as an offshore facilities engineer and progressing into various technical leadership roles for assets across the United States. In 2013, I moved to XTO Energy (an ExxonMobil subsidiary) as a Business Development analyst. My current role is Midstream Engineering Manager for East Texas, South Texas, and Appalachia.
