The Board, management team and all our employees thank Stu for his 14 years of dedicated service to TETRA and CSI Compressco. Stu's leadership was key in re-positioning TETRA with the divestitures of Maritech and the Offshore Services segment and evolving our fluids, water management and compression segments, which allowed us to operate through the recent downturn, each year generating positive adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow. The onboarding of Brady and the transition from Stu to Brady has been smooth and consistent with what Stu and the board worked to achieve. We wish Stu and his wife, Randi, all the best in retirement."
