OmniTRAX appoints Mathieu president of energy solutions business
Pierre-Luc Mathieu has been named president of OmniTRAX Energy Solutions (OES), parent company OmniTRAX Inc. announced yesterday.
Mathieu previously served as chief strategy officer for OmniTRAX.
"Pierre is the perfect executive to oversee the OES team and deliver strong growth to the OmniTRAX organization," said OmniTRAX Chief Executive Officer Kevin Shuba in a press release. "His experience and expertise will help allocate the right resources to capitalize on the strength of our assets. We're looking forward to seeing great things from Pierre and OES."
OES offers services to the proppant supply chain, including terminals in several basins, transload operations and Arrows UP LLC, which is a containerized proppant delivery and storage solution provider.
Mathieu will continue to report to Shuba. Reporting to Mathieu are John Allegretti, CEO of Arrows Up; Justin Renfro, senior vice president of business development for OES; and James Samuelsen, director of corporate development for OES. The full OES team will grow to more than 200 people by year's end, company officials said.
"There are significant opportunities in the energy market right now, especially in the supply chain and logistics area where every stakeholder is looking to increase productivity and lower costs," said Mathieu. "OES will help customers improve performance by providing comprehensive solutions to move proppant and other materials from the mines to the well heads in the most efficient way possible."
Prior to OmniTRAX, Mathieu spent nine years in executive roles at Brambles Ltd. and held strategy and manufacturing roles with Le Groupe Michelin in Canada and the United States.
