“Last week, we hosted Chris Gannon, newly appointed Smith, VP , Marketing, in meetings with clients in two cities as part of Chris’s first NDR in his new role. While again affirming his commitment to ERII’s prior corporate strategy and initiatives, Mr. Gannon revealed changes in (1) organization, as he’s created distinct business units for Water and Oil & Gas; (2) Water’s growth mandate, which has become more ambitious and broader in scope; (3) Oil & Gas’s near-term focus, which has narrowed to commercialization progress on with all other PX-derivative developments temporarily suspended; and (4) tone of and approach to guidance. On the whole, we felt he and his message were positively received.”
