Last month Gary Yepsen announced that he would be leaving FRI and retiring. At that time, the Executive Committee formed a selection team to identify and interview candidates. After thorough consideration, the Executive Committee has chosen Jose Bravo, previously of Shell Global Solutions, Inc., to be the next FRI president.
Jose brings an extensive background in distillation, but he also brings years of experience in sales and marketing while within Shell Global Solutions. He also has significant experience in leading organizations to improve personal safety and process safety.
Over the years, Jose has been very active at FRI, within the DPC and the EC. He will utilize this experience to quickly acclimate to the new position. Jose will join FRI in early May and will be attending the FRI meetings in Miami, Florida.
Please join us in welcoming Jose to FRI and in wishing him the very best of success.
