We’re impressed by what we’ve seen. I’m excited to be involved.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 22, 2015
The newly appointed advisory board of Bluware, Inc. met with CEO Rick Jones and President Deborah Simmons on Thursday, April 2nd to discuss the company’s outlook in the face of persistent low oil prices. The executives and the board believe that the oil price slump is an opportunity for Bluware: many major oil and gas players are re-evaluating their operations and are more willing to challenge the status quo. Said Deborah Simmons, “We encourage our clients to examine preconceptions about the limits of their technology organization, and we’re finding that that message resonates with oil and gas companies trying to preserve their scientific edge as they weather this downturn.”
Bluware’s advisory board, which represents over one hundred years of industry experience between its three members, cited Bluware’s history and relationships as key differentiators in a tough economic climate. Board member John Hanten described Bluware’s client engagement model as “a true partnership, not a short-order arrangement.” Don Moore, also on the advisory board, pointed out that Bluware (in business for over 25 years) has been through tough markets before, saying “The tenure of the company is a testament to the way Bluware conducts business.” Despite the challenges posed by lower oil prices, Bluware’s leadership is optimistic that this period will promote innovation and drive the company and its clients to explore new strategies.
The board consists of three members, all former executives in the oil and gas industry: John Hanten, a retired Venture Executive for Chevron Technology Ventures; Don Moore, retired CIO of Occidental Petroleum; and Dan Piette, a veteran entrepreneur and former CEO of OpenSpirit, Object Reservoir, Terraspark Geosciences, and Bell Geospace. The board provides an outside perspective on Bluware’s operations, and gives insight into how Bluware, as a niche business, can build relationships with major customers. Said Dan Piette following the meeting, “We’re impressed by what we’ve seen. I’m excited to be involved.”
