MIDLAND, Texas – BCCK, Inc. announced today that its founder, Clark Butts, and its board of directors have chosen Kevin Blount as the organization's next chief executive officer.  

Blount, who currently serves as BCCK’s chief operating officer, will succeed Butts, the company's founder and current CEO, who after leading the company for 40 years has chosen to step aside from some aspects of the day-to-day operations. Clark will continue to provide strategic oversight to the business but will specifically focus on technology and new product development, championing BCCK in its critical role within the industry as a provider of leading-edge midstream related technologies and services. He will also continue to serve on the company’s board of directors.

"After thorough succession planning, we are pleased to announce this natural evolution in the leadership of the organization," Butts said. "Kevin has a track record of strong leadership both inside and outside of BCCK. These factors, combined with his deep industry knowledge, make Kevin uniquely qualified to lead BCCK successfully going forward."

"I'm honored for the chance to lead this organization of talented, innovative and dedicated professionals in Midland and The Woodlands," Blount said. “I am excited for the future and grateful to Clark, Shirley and the board of directors for providing me the opportunity.”

Blount joined BCCK in 2017 after holding a variety of senior leadership positions, including as vice president of strategy and business development at Chart Industries, after a 32-year career at there. Originally from the United Kingdom, Blount moved to the United States in 2005 and lives in The Woodlands with his wife of 37 years, Julie. He has two children and one grandson.

BCCK, Inc. is a Midland-based provider of engineering, procurement, fabrication and field construction services, focusing on midstream oil and natural gas processing applications. The company is backed by SCF Partners and BCCK management.
