Phil Johnson

Vice President of Marine Operations

“As the first tankerman service in the country, PSC has survived and prospered for more than 65 years because we’ve always been a leader in terms of our operating performance. It’s a source of pride for me that we take the responsibility of protecting our people and the environment very seriously. As long as we provide outstanding service and keep the best interests of our customers and employees in mind, we will continue to grow as a company.”



Phil’s history with PSC dates back to the mid-1970s, when he began looking for a “land job” after working for a few years as a boat tankerman on the inland rivers. He joined PSC in 1976, working as a tankerman and railcar loader at Chevron in Pascagoula, Mississippi. From there, he made a move to dock operator at the new Marathon Refinery in Garyville, Louisiana.

He continued his westward path, relocating to Baton Rouge in 1978 to take on the role of manager for PSC’s tankerman operations in Baton Rouge. Phil made his final move for PSC in 1979, relocating to Houston in 1979, to grow our tankerman and plant services in Texas.

Today, Phil serves as Vice President of Marine Operations, responsible for PSC’s tankerman and dock operations companywide. He and his wife Shirley live in Pasadena, Texas. They have two sons and one grandchild.
