He also served as vice president of ConocoPhillips Shipping and managed the floating systems division and business development efforts. While there he had global responsibility for design, construction, and commissioning of ConocoPhillips’ ships, drill ships and other marine assets, including the Polar Tanker fleet. He was also responsible for the formulation of ConocoPhillips Marine Global Gas Strategy, and their Marine Gas Organization.
Rajabi earned bachelors’ degrees in naval architecture from the Italian Naval Academy, in mechanical engineering from the US Naval Postgraduate School, and in Italian language and literature from the Institute of Dante Alighieri.
