"I have personally worked with Rich for nearly three years as an integral part of the team that helped stabilize Flotek's financial and accounting platform.  Rich's credentials are impeccable, his experience unparalleled and his approach to accounting and financial management exceptional. Rich's wealth of knowledge about both Flotek's business and the application of GAAP accounting to public companies will serve Flotek incredibly well. Combined with Flotek's other financial leadership, Rich is the right person at the right time to push Flotek to the next level. I am delighted to welcome him to Flotek's leadership team and especially appreciated his willingness to accept the role on an interim basis when he was needed to serve."
