Sales, Strategy & Operations Officer
As the Senior Vice President of Sales, Strategy & Operations of Water Standard as well as the President of Monarch Separators (the produced water arm of Water Standard), I have the opportunity to work with some amazing people. Together, we are helping clients understand and appreciate the immense value of water.
Prior to joining Water Standard, I was president of Monarch and was responsible for all of the company’s financial & commercial activities as well as its worldwide sales & operations. I especially enjoyed heading Monarch’s engineering & design teams, developing new technologies which enabled Monarch to address the energy industry’s constant state of flux.
My interests vary but never stray far from my love of business, family, friends, philosophy, travel, culture, and food. I was very close to my father, who taught me a lot about life, business, and the energy industry specifically.
A key piece of wisdom from my father that I share to anyone listening, is based on the premise that there’s life in decisions. “It’s what you do that I care about more than what you say. And I care more about what you say than what you think. For what you think is only for you to know.”
