The SOR Board of Directors has named Mike Waters as President and CEO. Waters’ responsibilities will begin April 30.
The former Vice President & General Manager of Sagebrush Pipeline Equipment in Tulsa, Oklahoma has a rich background in the instrumentation industry and Oil & Gas and Power Utilities markets.
Waters knows instrumentation from almost every perspective in the chain. He has worked as a sales representative for Emerson Electric Company/Rosemount and as a Vice President and General Sales Manager for Andon Specialties Inc, a Manufacturer’s Representative operating in the Texas and Louisiana Gulf coast. His extensive career includes time at Houston-based FlowZone, LLC where he was President of an industrial distributor and service provider of instrumentation and fluid transfer products. Waters also served as Director of Sales for Mallard Control located in Oklahoma City.
Chairman of the Board, Linda Dunlap says the appointment of Mike Waters as President and CEO is the culmination of a very thorough search for a highly-qualified leader.
“The goal was to hire an individual who has a proven track record of growing companies profitably. We were searching for someone with demonstrated experience in leading successful product development and acquisition strategies,” said Dunlap. “We used a search firm to identify qualified candidates in the instrumentation industry. Many well-qualified candidates were considered. I truly believe the process uncovered the best leader for SOR.”
