Executive Emeritus, Chevron Corporation
Mr. Revenko spent his career at Chevron Corporation in business, technical and management functions. He lives in Marin County (north of San Francisco) with wife Maggee. He has two grown children, Laura and Liz.
Mr. Revenko is a native New Yorker who attended NY public grade school, Stuyvesant High School and graduated with undergraduate and graduate degrees in Science and Engineering from Columbia University in New York City.
He joined Chevron after graduation and settled in the Bay Area where he has lived mostly since then. He spent some time in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Bahrain and Europe on business assignments and has traveled to many counties on behalf of Chevron and for personal enrichment.
Mr. Revenko became involved in international education and exchange many years ago through Chevron's interest and support. From this he developed a fond interest in citizen diplomacy, international education and exchange. To this end he built and managed a worldwide learning and development consulting organization in Chevron. During the course of his career he attended the University of California at Berkeley and earned a business degree as well as business executive courses at Stanford and USC.
Mr. Revenko found time to (and still does) help the community. He is a past President and Member of the Board of Governors of the Commonwealth Club of California, past President of the International Diplomacy Council (IDC), Chairman Emeritus of the Association of Internal Management Consultants, past Member of Mayor Newsom's Workforce Investment Board, and a Member of the California Supreme Court Committee to select State Bar Court Justices.
Mr. Revenko also helps on the Board of Ross Valley Players, a local community theater group presenting plays of value and helping educate the community in theater arts.
Mr. Revenko considers what IIE does as vital to U.S. interests, as well as just a good thing to do on principle.
