There are people who move to Riverdale and stay because they love it. Then there’s John Edwards — who grew up in Riverdale, and could never imagine living in a better place.

At 6-foot-2, he was a giant in real estate in more ways than one. And as he brings his old real estate firm bearing his name back to life, Edwards is ready for his return to matchmaking buyers with their perfect homes.

“The keys to working in real estate is to be honest and hardworking, know your market, and know what you’re selling.”

And does Edwards know his market. He grew up attending P.S. 81 Robert J. Christen and later Riverdale/Kingsbridge Academy. He is an alum of Manhattan College. And outside of a few short stints in high school and college, he’s never ventured too far from Riverdale — even in a career that originally started first with basketball, and later modeling and acting.

Wall succeeds Colin Parfitt, who is now vice president of Midstream.

Chevron Corp. has named George Wall president of Supply and Trading, effective March 1.

Wall succeeds Colin Parfitt whose appointment as vice president of Midstream was announced as part of Chevron’s recent management changes.

Wall is responsible for Chevron’s global trading activities for crude oil, feedstocks, refined products, natural gas and gas liquids to support the company’s crude and gas production operations and refining and marketing network. Wall will be located in Houston and lead Chevron’s enterprisewide supply and trading activities, along with additional trading hubs in London, Singapore and other offices worldwide.

Before leading Supply & Trading, Wall served as vice president of Americas Products, U.S. East and Latin America, where he was responsible for the profitability of Chevron’s refining and fuels business, including crude-to-customer value chain for all fuels-related businesses, including Retail, Commercial & Industrial, and Aviation. Wall also served as chairman of the American Petroleum Institute’s marketing subcommittee. He is also a board member of Junior Achievement of Southeast Texas.

“George’s proven leadership in the crude-to-customer value chain and financial results, along with his deep understanding and commitment to customer relationships, makes him the right person to lead this organization during changing market dynamics,” said Parfitt.

With more than 37 years of service at Chevron, Wall has served in several leadership positions of increasing responsibility, including general manager, Americas Marketing Sales and Services, in San Ramon, Calif. where he was responsible for the global service centers, global card marketing activities and the product line portfolio of the Chevron, Texaco and Caltex retail brands.

In 2004, Wall was vice president of a Supply & Trading unit based in New York, before moving to San Ramon in 2006 as vice president of Global Logistics, responsible for more than 300 fuel terminals globally and all global transportation and distribution operations, including approximately 6,000 employees and contractors worldwide.

Wall graduated from Manhattan College in Riverdale, New York, with a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering.
