Brian has joined Strike as an Executive Vice President and brings 21 years of experience within the energy industry to his new role. Brian was most recently the President & CEO of Spitzer Industries, where he was responsible for the corporate performance and growth of this hardware manufacturer for the upstream, midstream, and downstream construction industries.
As Executive Vice President for Strike, Brian will be focused on operational support. He will work with the fleet management team to increase the utilization of Strike's equipment fleet. Fleet is the second largest company spend behind our people, so a small improvement in our overall utilization will result in a significant increase to Strike's profitability.
Brian will also support the project controls and project accounting teams to refine Strike's reporting deliverables to the projects and operations support personnel. Strike collects a tremendous amount of data as a company and Brian will work on generating concise information that the management team can use to drive decisions and execute profitably.
With Brian's focus on these key areas, Strike will strengthen its ability to scale up and take on larger, diverse EPC projects. We look forward to Brian's contributions to Strike and to working with him.
