Patrick T. Mulva, vice president and controller of Irving-based Exxon Mobil Corp., has announced plans to retire on Sept. 1, 2014, capping more than 38 years with the company.

Mulva, 63, joined the company in 1976 as a financial analyst at its Baton Rouge, La. refinery before serving several financial positions in its upstream and downstream operations.

After managing short-range planning for the U.S. downstream business, Mulva was appointed assistant controller for Exxon Company International in 1990. The following year, Mulva was named finance director of Exxon companies in Malaysia.

He returned to Exxon Company U.S.A. in 1993 as upstream controller and later became its assistant controller. In 1996, he was appointed controller of Imperial Oil Ltd., Exxon’s Canadian affiliate. Two years later, Mulva was appointed senior vice president, finance and administration, and a director of Imperial Oil Ltd.

In 2002, he became vice president of investor relations and corporate secretary of Exxon Mobil Corp. at the company's Irving headquarters. Mulva was elected to his current position in 2004.

A native of Green Bay, Wis., Mulva holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Notre Dame and a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Texas at San Antonio. He served three years in the U.S. Air Force prior to joining the company.

Mulva is chairman of the American Petroleum Institute's general committee on finance. He is a member of Financial Executives International and its committee on corporate reporting, as well as a member of the Business School Advisory Council at the University of Texas at San Antonio.
