Gilmore, a US division of Aberdeen-based Proserv, has appointed energy industry veteran David Nemetz as its new chief executive.
The Houston-based firm has been providing flow control solutions to the oil and gas industry for more than 50 years.
Nemetz – an engineer by training – previously held senior roles at TechnipFMC and FMC Technologies, before first joining Proserv as project director in May 2019 – soon after which he then took up the role of president at Gilmore.
His experience of executing strategic growth plans will “prove invaluable”, according to the company, as it looks to expand across markets and regions, both organically and through acquisition.
“Gilmore will actively pursue appropriate business acquisitions that will accelerate penetration into new markets or widen its product capabilities and range,” read a statement.
Nemetz commented: “Through 2021, we will roll out a range of genuinely disruptive products, incorporating exciting new materials, which will take corrosion resistance, debris tolerance and durability in unconventional completions solutions to a whole new level.”
Nemetz’s senior team includes technology and business ventures vice president Ryan Bludau, and operations vice president Scott Shugart.
David Currie, Proserv group chief executive, stated: “In David Nemetz we are delighted to have appointed a leader with the necessary experience, vision and drive to inspire this excellent team and continually push its flow control technology forwards to fully maximise its potential.”
The controls technology company incorporates two divisions, Proserv Controls and Gilmore, both providing solutions to clients across the energy sector.
