Congratulations to David Decuir on being promoted to technical solutions manager to assume leadership of the Compliance Training Department. Since August 2016, David worked as production manager and will continue to develop and implement the field management business models, as well as provide technical advisement to clients regarding safe and efficient operations.
The work David and his team of production specialists have done on developing workshops and presentations specific to customer needs fits well into Danos’ employee development strategic initiative and will continue, as will the hands on skills assessments. As part of our overall employee development strategy, David is actively leading a project to create a competency model which will be the basis on which future models will be built across all Danos’ service lines. By directly connecting our existing training team with our internal technical experts, we are positioning Danos to set the standard in employee development as we focus on customer challenges.
David attended Nicholls State University and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Petroleum Engineering Technology and an Associate of Science degree in Safety Management. He subsequently returned to Nicholls for the Executive Masters of Business Administration program. Prior to joining Danos, David began his career as a production operator and worked his way up to an offshore production foreman, and later production superintendent. He has comprehensive leadership and management experience within the upstream and midstream oil and gas industry, combined with solid expertise in Department of the Interior and Department of Transportation operations. David has an in-depth knowledge of required governing regulatory bodies, simultaneous operations, production and pipeline process equipment, as well as liquid and gas measurement equipment.
Thank you to Tommy Oliver for his leadership of the training team for the past year. As a result of this change, Tommy will redirect his primary focus to the management of Talent Acquisition. He will remain a key contributor to the progression of staff leadership and development programs.
