Frontier Integrity Solutions (FIS) has named Keyth Pengal as CEO and added oil and gas industry veteran Bill Boyer to its Board of Directors. These appointments are effective immediately.
“FIS has an over-40-year history of quality, trust, and honesty with its customers, employees, and communities it serves,” Cyrus Nikou, Chairman of FIS and Founder and Managing Partner of Atar Capital, said. “Keyth will further strengthen these core values while bringing in his operating mettle, coupled with Bill’s 41 years of experience in oil and gas. This will be a great one-two punch to help accelerate the growth of FIS and better serve our customers, employees, and communities and be the premier choice of pipeline inspection services.”
Pengal brings over 25 years of operating experience, most recently as a Managing Director of Atar’s operating group, where he will remain as a Senior Advisor. He helped lead the carve out of FIS from Team Inc. and helped stabilize operations and strengthen relationships with the company’s key customers. Prior to supporting Atar Capital, Pengal held a number of executive positions/roles in operations, including Vice President of Operations at Goldline International, where he led technology and process improvements to help grow the company from $50 million to $850 million in 3 years. Keyth will report to the FIS Board.
Boyer currently serves as Senior Vice-President of Operations at Southcross Energy Partners L.P. He retired from Occidental Petroleum after an illustrious 39-year career where he was President of Occidental’s crude oil pipeline subsidiary, Centurion Pipeline, and General Manager of Occidental’s midstream operations business unit, which included the Centurion Pipeline operations and a new marine terminal at Ingleside, Texas.
“We are thrilled to welcome Bill to the FIS Board and to Atar Capital’s Senior Advisory Group,” added Nikou. “Bill is a ‘salt-of-the-earth,’ well-respected leader and operator in the oil and gas industry with significant pipeline inspection experience. We look forward to working with Bill and charting the next chapter of FIS.”
