Name: Graham Sims Position: Head of retail UK Company: BP The job: Sims is "turning up the heat on the marketing side of the business" as BP changes its focus worldwide from oil to retail. He is overseeing the roll out of the new BP Connect solar powered petrol station and c-store format across the UK. He said: "The challenge is to get away from our oil heritage ­ one of my key roles is to adapt the business to customers retail needs." Background: Sims was previously responsible for BP's retail business in Spain and Portugal. He joined from Mobil, following a Mobil/BP brand integration in Europe in 1996. He said: "I started my career with Mobil in 1979. I guess I am a true oily." In almost two decades at Mobil, Sims worked in marketing and corporate roles in the UK and abroad. "I am delighted to be back in the UK to lead the retail team as it begins implementing the exciting new UK strategy, including the launch of BP Connect Retail stations," he said. {{PEOPLE MOVES }}
