Bill Lingard said, "I am very pleased to have Shawn Carry and Dave Kastelic in the leadership roles of these two important divisions. Their respective experience and enthusiasm will accelerate improving our performance in each. During the last nine months Tim O'Brien has played a very important role leading the integration of Transco for Flint. He will continue to assist Shawn and Dave during the next couple of months as he transitions to retirement. On behalf of Flint, I wish to thank Tim for his many years of service to the company. We are now positioned to efficiently deliver the oilfield transportation and tubular management services to meet our client's needs throughout our established regional structure. We continue to find good synergies between our operating divisions allowing us to reduce cost and expand our business."
