Oxford Flow has hired Ghiz and established the subsidiary to expand its reach in North and South America, and to offer on-the-ground commercial and technical support.
The English company, which traces its roots back to Oxford University where the core inspiration for the product range struck Professor Tom Povey, will have US offices based in Houston’s Energy Corridor.
“The US 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, said Neil Poxon,” CEO at Oxford Flow.
“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 brings a wealth of experience in valves and engineered equipment, in the oil, gas, chemical and water industries. 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.
“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,” Ghiz said.
“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.”
