ILMA Compoundings - November/December 2020 - Cover3

PORTRAIT
Colleen Murphy-Smith
Director, Base Oils, Motiva Enterprises
" I've always been guided by one of my
favorite quotes from Maya Angelou: 'People
will forget what you said, people will forget
what you did, but people will never forget
how you made them feel.' My core values
are: trustworthiness, authenticity, fairness,
respect others and live life to the fullest. A
former mentor of mine said, 'Never forget
the balance between us and our customers
as fairness carries you through the tough
times and rewards you in the best time.' "

GREAT OPPORTUNITIES, GREAT PEOPLE
" I started with Shell Oil and later Motiva (given the JV formation in 1998) in Fuels, Sales and Marketing and have held
numerous roles, mostly sales-based, throughout my 28-year
career. Joining Motiva's Base Oils team mid-2018 has been one
of the most pivotal moves in my career. It has afforded me the
opportunity to get out of my comfort zone and be vulnerable.
The Motiva Base Oils team is an amazing group of individuals
who, aside from their various knowledge of all things refining
and base oils are, to the core, great people. My experiences in
Base Oils has been one of my platforms talking with those earlier in their careers - don't wait 20-plus years to try something
new in your career. Take the risk and get out of your comfort
zone early in your career!
" My first ILMA meeting was Fall 2018 in Palm Springs. A true
testament to the ILMA membership is the spirit of 'family' I
felt immediately. ILMA and my interactions with customers
and colleagues have established an invaluable foundation for
not only industry insights and impacts, but the collaboration
needed to develop tactics in our dynamic industry. "

MOMENTI IN ITALIA
" My husband, Mark, and I took a two-week trip to Italy celebrating our 15-year anniversary in September 2017. We started
in Tuscany, drove back to Rome and then finished our trip in
the Amalfi Coast. It was amazing to experience the various
regions of Italy.
" I remember our first day staying at a fantastic B&B in San
Gimignano, the owner, after our 'buongiorno' greeting, asked
where I was going. 'Off to a quick breakfast,' I replied - to
which he said, 'Nothing is quick in Italy,' as he opened his
arms to the rolling olive tree fields behind him. It was a great
reminder to slow down and enjoy every moment! "

OFF THE BEATEN PATH
" I love traveling and dining out. Dining out more for the social
aspect, but I love trying new foods and dining experiences. My
role in Motiva has afforded me the opportunity to travel to Singapore, Dubai and Saudi Arabia. One day before a Singapore
conference, I joined two Motiva colleagues for a food tour,
visiting a hawker centre and other off-the-beaten-path local
restaurants. It was a great experience! "

NEW EXPERIENCES
" I have jumped out of an airplane and would do it again! Also,
I've always wanted to play drums, but growing up, our family
was not musically inclined. I bought my first set of drums in
2018 and started lessons, but then after I started my new role
in Base Oils, it took a back seat. I started back up this year
with virtual lessons, and it's been great learning something
new - plus it's been a great stress reliever! "
