BCCK, Inc. founder Clark Butts and the company’s board of directors have unanimously chosen Kevin Blount as the organization’s next chief executive officer. Blount, who currently serves as BCCK’s chief operating officer, will succeed Clark Butts, the company’s founder and current CEO, who after leading the company for forty 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,” says Clark Butts. “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.”
