HOUSTON (Feb. 5, 2014) – Hoover Container Solutions named Matt Matis as director of sales for the Gulf of Mexico region. Matis is based in Thibodeaux, La., and will work closely with Hoover’s facilities in Port Fourchon, New Iberia and Scott, La.

Matis will lead Hoover’s Louisiana sales efforts with a focus on the offshore industry while managing several major customer accounts. Additionally, he will work closely with the Hoover and Dolphin Energy Equipment teams to develop an integrated product and service offering to better support customers. Hoover acquired Dolphin, an offshore equipment provider, in October 2013.

“As the Hoover-Dolphin integration continues, we are eager to add Matt’s knowledge, relationships and leadership to our sales team,” said Donald Young, Hoover’s chief executive officer. “His industry expertise will serve as a valuable asset as we continue our expansion into the offshore chemical tank and cargo carrying unit (CCU) market.”

Prior to joining Hoover, Matis worked for Swire Oilfield Services in Houma, La., for seven years where he most recently served as the Louisiana sales manager. Matis graduated with a bachelor’s degree in general studies and a minor in family and consumer science from Nicholls State University.
