2015 Staff Employee of the Year - Rene Vidrine


By: The Pipeline

Rene Vidrine started with Danos as a safety intern in April 2006. When Danos looked to gain a foothold in the Permian Basin, he was asked at a young age to be a part of that exciting venture. Being open to change, he moved out to West Texas and became the leader our customers depend on. With his tireless efforts, he quickly became and remains the driving force behind our success in the Permian Basin.

Since moving back to our corporate headquarters, his ability to manage his team throughout Texas and Pennsylvania remotely without effecting customer service shows that he remains the respected leader his team leans on to provide solutions for our customers. 

Endorsements from supervisors and customers

He is always willing to listen to ideas in regards to improving our involvement here in the Permian Basin. If something needs to be changed, he is the first to get on board or come up with another idea to help the situation. He is well respected by management and field employees.
