Goldsmith has shown impressive career growth in his nearly 10 years at ConocoPhillips and Phillips 66, where he now serves as director of midstream business development. His organizational responsibilities include the origination and development of business for P66’s existing and potential assets in the Rockies. Throughout his time at Phillips 66, he has served as an engineering manager and owner’s representative responsible for the development of P66’s LEED Platinum global headquarters in Houston, Texas, and led an engineering organization responsible for P66’s East Coast and Gulf Coast terminals. Goldsmith was also responsible for a program of high return projects supporting P66’s Refining, Marketing and Commercial businesses which ultimately delivered over $25 million per year of annual value. Prior to his work with ConocoPhillips, Goldsmith worked as a project engineer at Turner Construction in Denver, one of the largest construction management companies in the United States.

Since graduating from CU with a BS in Mechanical Engineering and MS in Engineering Management, Goldsmith has stayed connected to the College of Engineering and Applied Science. He served on the Graduates of the Last Decade Board at its inception and is the former co-chair. He actively volunteers his time working with various departments throughout the College of Engineering and Applied Science and serves on the Dean’s Engineering Advisory Council.

Part of Goldsmith’s duties at Phillips 66 is university relations, and he has used that role to stay involved on the CU Boulder campus. He acts as a mentor for the Phillips 66 Shield Scholars Program and returns to campus often to interview and recruit future CU Engineering graduates. Goldsmith is a tireless recruiter and goes the extra mile to ensure CU Engineering students receive offers from Phillips 66.
