Oilfield Instrumentation has added Scott Deaton to its business development team for Houston area sales. Deaton will primarily represent the harsh environment laboratories and special custom buildings division, while also promoting the company’s drilling instrumentation products and services when applicable.
Peyton Reddick, president of Oilfield Instrumentation remarked:
“Scott is a great addition to our team. His previous experience makes him particularly suited to helping upstream companies determine their oilfield building needs. And as a customer of Oilfield Instrumentation in the past, it’s a high compliment to OI that he has chosen to represent the quality of our products and services to industry peers.
Deaton’s work with previous employers Schlumberger and Smith Bits included such positions as MWD/LWD operator and coordinator, and directional drilling coordinator. Deaton was introduced to Oilfield Instrumentation’s buildings and service in the field through his work for Pathfinder, a division of Schlumberger, years ago in Conway, Arkansas. It was this experience with OI that helped persuade Deaton to join the company.
Deaton is a Marine Corps veteran who started his oilfield career 18 years ago performing maintenance duties. He’s worked his way through the ranks at various service companies, eventually achieving managerial rank.
