ONEOK executive Rob Martinovich will serve as the chair of this year’s Tulsa Area United Way campaign for the community.
As chair of the Campaign Cabinet, Martinovich will lead a team of nearly 50 community volunteers who will lead the annual campaign, which begins in August.
However, Martinovich, volunteers and the United Way staff are already in the planning stages of the campaign, said Alison Anthony, incoming President and CEO of the Tulsa Area United Way.
“We are so fortunate to have such as visionary and dedicated community leader at the helm of this year’s United Way campaign,” Anthony said.
The campaign will officially kick off during an area high school football game in August, which has yet to be determined. The Trailblazer campaign will begin earlier during the summer, in advance of the community-wide campaign, Anthony said.
Martinovich is executive vice president and chief administrative officer of ONEOK, responsible for human resources, corporate services and information technology. Previously, he served as executive vice president, commercial, and executive vice president, operations, of ONEOK and ONEOK Partners.
In 2012, Martinovich served as executive vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer of ONEOK and ONEOK Partners. He was ONEOK’s chief operating officer, responsible for ONEOK’s natural gas distribution and energy services operating segments, as well as the company’s environmental, safety and health, and technical services organizations from 2009 through 2011. He also served as president of ONEOK Partners’ natural gas gathering and processing business from 2007 to 2009.
Active in industry affairs, Martinovich served as president of the Gas Processors Association from 2004 to 2006. In the community, he currently serves on the board of directors for the Tulsa Area United Way and the YMCA of Greater Tulsa.
A native of Bartlesville, Okla., Martinovich earned a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering in 1980 from the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. He also is a graduate of Harvard Business School’s Advanced Management Program.
