Gavin Cole, Vice President of Sales for KSM, said Phillips is a true professional that will provide strong leadership as the company finds new and creative methods to work more closely with the pipeline industry.
“Kris brings a wealth of experience to his new position related to equipment sales, product support, and sales training. He has worked closely with the pipeline industry in various roles throughout his career, and proudly served in the United States Marine Corps where he worked as an equipment mechanic,” Cole said. “I am excited for KSM’s future in this area under Kris’ care.”
Excited for his new opportunity, Phillips finds motivation in the words of his late grandfather: "Don’t let the family down."
“I am honored every day to be a part of the Kirby-Smith family which has been such a huge part of both my career and life," Phillips said. "I have no intention of letting Granddad down and won’t let any of my 1KS family down either. I am so proud to be part of this team and look forward to the challenges ahead.”
