Sunoco Logistics CEO resigns amid sexual harassment investigation

Logistics giant Sunoco said on Tuesday it fired its CEO, amid an internal investigation into allegations that he sexually harassed and retaliated against employees.

The company said it was reviewing its internal processes and policies in light of the investigation, which is focused on complaints against Mr. Lopez and other senior executives, and has opened a full review of the company’s culture.

Mr. Lobato, who took over as CEO in February, had been at Sunoco since 2010.

Sunoco said it will make further changes to its corporate culture and to how it treats the most vulnerable employees, including a plan to hire and promote women.

The company said in a statement that Mr. López’s departure will not affect the performance of his role as chief operating officer.

Sunoco says it expects its next chief operating executive to be a woman.

Sunaco, a Texas-based company with operations in nearly 100 countries, has struggled to contain a toxic culture that has left workers fearful for their safety and threatened their livelihoods.

Mr. Lopez was appointed to the position in January 2016 and is widely seen as a reformer.

His tenure at Sunaco, which has struggled with skyrocketing costs and dwindling cash flow, has been marked by the company cutting back on corporate spending.

Sunaco has also faced allegations of sexual harassment.

Mr: Lobato and his wife have also been accused of sexual misconduct.

A former Sunoco engineer said Mr. Levinas behavior with other female employees was “inappropriate” and led to him losing his job, according to a lawsuit filed in the Southern District of New York.

Sunco declined to comment on the lawsuit.

Mr Levinas was hired as the company CEO in 2015, but it was not until his resignation on Tuesday that Mr Lobato was formally announced as the new chief.

Sunco said it would make further improvements to its workplace culture and will provide training to help staff address harassment and discrimination.

The announcement comes amid an ongoing investigation into sexual harassment allegations against Mr Lopez and others.

Sunaca is a subsidiary of Transocean Corp. which is the largest oil company in the world.

Transocean said in March that it was ending its relationship with Mr. Larrañaga, who was also ousted as chief executive of his company in February.

Transcocean said that it will not comment on specific allegations of workplace discrimination.

Mr Lopez has been at the center of several lawsuits against Sunoco and its subsidiaries.

He was ousted as the CEO of Sunoco in May, amid accusations of sexual and domestic violence.

Mr Lobato also resigned from his position as president and chief operating Officer of his own company, Energy Supply Group Inc., in March.

Sunica Corp., the largest natural gas producer in the U.S., announced on Tuesday the firing of its chairman, who it said is a former Sunica executive.
