Philip Lesslar

Philip is from Malaysia and worked in Shell for 36 years from 1973 until his retirement at the end of 2009. He spent the first 13 years as a micropaleontologist specializing in Tertiary Foraminifera of NW Borneo. In this capacity, he spent a year in Rijswijk, The Netherlands, undergoing specialized training and fieldwork in The Netherlands, France, Spain and Northern Italy. While working in this field he developed a methodology and toolkit for a probabilistic approach to computer assisted interpretation of paleo-environments based on foraminifera.
He then transferred to geocomputing and information management in team lead and principal consultant roles in data and data quality management. He moved from Shell Sarawak (Malaysia) to Shell International based first in Houston, Texas, and subsequently in Rijswijk, The Netherlands. In this capacity he has been responsible for initiating and coordinating the development of Global EP Data Standards, Data Quality Metrics and for how these will be deployed globally.

He is now with PETRONAS Carigali Sdn.Bhd in Kuala Lumpur, working in an information management governance role.

He and his wife exercise and play badminton as much as they can. They have 2 children and travel is a priority on the family agenda.
