FUEL brand Jet has a new marketing boss in the UK, thanks to the appointment of Rupert Turner.

Turner has worked with Phillips 66 since 1989 and brings a wealth of experience to his new role.

The marketing boss previously worked out of the firm’s Houston office as part of the US marketing team.

He joins at what Phillips 66 described as an exciting time for the Jet brand as it increasingly focuses on emerging energy products, beyond traditional fossil fuels.

Renne Semi, who is vacating the UK marketing director role to take up a post in the US,
commented: “Rupert is an experienced marketer and I know that I am passing the baton to safe and experienced hands.

“I have had the privilege to lead an exceptional team in London and I am proud of the work we have achieved together and the challenges we have overcome.”

Turner said: “What a time to be returning to London and joining the UK marketing team.

“The work around emerging energies is exceptional and there is a tangible buzz around the Jet brand that goes from strength-to-strength.

“I can’t wait to get started and am looking forward to meeting our customers throughout the UK.”
