Oxford Flow, the flow control equipment company, appointed Andy Ghiz as VP, Americas as it sets up its U.S. subsidiary to expand its reach in North and South America.
Based in offices in the Park Row area of Greater Houston’s Energy Corridor, Ghiz brings experience in valves and engineered equipment, in the oil, gas, chemical and water industries. He has previously held positions including SVP business development at Wood; VP, manager of midstream and pipeline services at URS; and Global Business Line manager at Crane ChemPharma and Energy.
His role will focus on building an operation in Houston, supporting the existing client base, and developing Oxford Flow’s long-term strategy for the Americas.
Neil Poxon, CEO at Oxford Flow said: “The U.S. is an integral part of our strategy as we look to expand across all the sectors we operate in. Houston was the ideal first location due to its position as an oil and gas hub and its number of public works companies. We are extremely pleased to have Andy join the team; his combined experience across sectors and connections will bring a valuable skill set to drive us forward.”
Ghiz adds: “At Oxford Flow, innovation is a core principle, not a buzzword, which is just one of the reasons I am thrilled to join the team. No matter what sector – water or oil and gas – companies are always looking for ways to increase safety, reduce costs, improve efficiency and be more environmentally friendly. Oxford Flow’s products deliver on those promises.”
