Dear PEI Member:
Kevin McKinney, president of McKinney Petroleum Equipment, Mobile, Alabama, became the 65th president of the Petroleum Equipment Institute on January 1. He succeeds Phil Farrell, president of Double Check Company, Inc., headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, in that post. Steve Trabilsy, president of Accurate Tank Technologies, North Aurora, Illinois, is PEIís vice president for 2015.
One of McKinneyís first duties was to appoint committees for 2015. In all, 181 people were named to serve on 24 PEI committees, with 29 individuals appointed to a committee for the first time. PEI is fortunate to have members who are willing to give their time to improve the association and the industry it serves. I canít say this association is unique in that regardóthere are other associations with active volunteer membersóbut PEI is fortunate to have so many members who are obviously talented and dedicated to the task at hand when they meet as a committee or board. On behalf of your Tulsa-based staff, thank you.
You can find the complete list of all committees and committee members here.
