He is deeply experienced in building enterprise-wide software solutions for energy companies across the full hydrocarbon stream,” said Gibson. “I have known Koid for more than 20 years and have the highest regard for his leadership and work ethic, as well as his track-record of taking a ‘no-excuses’, results-driven approach to revenue growth. I value his strong integrity and his objectivity, with his proven ability to excel through both strong and challenging markets. In every organization he has served, he has been a transformative leader, who has accelerated growth by building and implementing business strategies and teams that deliver significant impacts to customers.”
“JP3 has experienced significant growth of 58 percent over the past four years, and now as a part of the Flotek, our goal is to build upon this growth at an even faster pace. Koid has a strong history of driving rapid and profitable growth, building upon his broad network of global executive-level relationships. He is an impressive leader who is both technically and financially savvy. In my four decades of investment experience, he is one of the greatest revenue drivers I have ever seen,” said Flotek Lead Director David Nierenberg.
“This is an exciting time for Flotek as it expands its business into data and analytics with the recent acquisition of JP3. I look forward to leveraging my experiences in digital transformation of the upstream and midstream oil and gas businesses to help drive Flotek’s growth,” said Koid.
