Changes in the HTRI Technical Committee Leadership
Richard P. Casebolt becomes Chair.
On October 14, 2016, former Technical Committee Chair Brigitte Ploix left Technip to start her own company. While Brigitte was serving as Technical Committee Chair, she was appointed Deputy Vice President, Process and Technologies Division, Technip. Because she is no longer employed at a member company, she is not eligible to remain on the Technical Committee. We thank Brigitte for her valued commitment and contributions during her eight years of service as a Technical Committee member (2008-2016), including three as Vice Chair (2011-2014) and two as Chair (2014-2016).
Richard P. Casebolt, Team Lead – Heat Transfer Group, ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company, has stepped up from his Vice Chair role to fill the position of Chair of the Technical Committee. Richard has been on the Technical Committee since 2009, and has served as Vice Chair since 2014. We are grateful for his continued service to this important committee. The Nominating Committee will meet in April 2017 to determine a slate of candidates for the 2017 election.
