Price, who effected his planned retirement from the position on January 4, 2013.
Stuart M. Brightman, TETRA's President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are extremely pleased to welcome Liz as a member of our management team. Liz is an accomplished human resources professional with more than 20 years of experience across a number of industries. In her most recent position as senior vice president of human resources and corporate communications with Boardwalk Pipeline Partners, LP, Liz streamlined the human resources function and dramatically increased employee engagement, and she played an active role in due diligence and organizational integration for a number of acquisitions. Liz has also held senior management positions with AGL Resources Inc., where she served as vice president of human resources and administrative services, and was instrumental in staffing multiple divisions for rapid growth, and Accenture, Ltd., where she designed and implemented an international career development model in her position as a global human resources director.
"Liz's broad skill set in human resources and her prior success in building talent management programs specifically designed to support growth will serve TETRA well as we continue the integration of our recent acquisitions and grow our domestic and international operations through additional capital investment. Furthermore, I am confident that Liz will provide strong leadership and guidance in our continuing efforts to provide all of our employees with challenging and rewarding career opportunities."
Mr. Brightman added, "I would also like to thank Linden Price for his many years of dedicated service to TETRA. Linden first joined TETRA in 1993 and was tasked with building a human resources program essentially from scratch. TETRA has transformed and grown significantly over the ensuing 20 years, and Linden's efforts to develop the quality of our management team and continually improve the strength and stability of our workforce have been invaluable in supporting that growth. We wish Linden the very best, and I know that he will enjoy his well-earned retirement."
