Odessa, Texas- based PropFlow LLC has added David Ward as CEO, the proppant service company said on May 13.

Ward holds nearly 20 years of experience in sales, people management, total supply chain, fleet management, warehousing, distribution and software integration.

He most recently served for six years as president and CEO of food equipment company Fortier Inc.

Ward previously held leadership roles at Southwestern Energy Co., Nexeo Solutions, All Star Recycling and ABF Freight Systems.

As CEO, Ward will lead and build out PropFlow’s operations of eliminating debris from proppant at well sites including the Permian Basin, the company said.

“Our experience and wide understanding of frac sand and oilfield operations has driven us to challenge the status quo in a space that has seen minimal innovation impacting efficiency or costs,” said Britt Mitchell, PropFlow’s co-founder.

“I am confident that Dave’s leadership ability and growth mindset will be a key component as PropFlow continues to build on its successful track record serving oil and natural gas producers in some of the most active producing basins in the country.”
