Danos Announces Leadership Changes
GRAY, La. — Danos has appointed two executive team members to new roles: Reed Peré will serve as vice president of business development, sales and marketing, and James Callahan as the vice president of operations.
Peré has over a decade of industry experience and began his career with Danos in 2006. He received the award for Danos’ Staff Employee of the Year in 2012 and joined the executive team as vice president of production services in 2015. In his new role overseeing sales, business development and marketing, Peré will be based primarily in Danos’ Houston office.
In Callahan’s move from vice president of project services to vice president of operations, he will absorb the production services responsibilities which Peré previously oversaw. This will be in addition to his current supervision of successful project operations worldwide, providing integrated project support for customers’ onshore and offshore activity.
Callahan joined Danos in 2013 as director, and later vice president, of finance and administration. With nearly three decades of experience in finance, risk management, asset management and procurement, he has held executive leadership positions in the telecommunication and ship repair industries.
“Both Reed and James have continuously demonstrated their ability to lead our organization, and we are confident they will continue to be great leaders in their new roles,” said owner Paul Danos.
The moves of Peré and Callahan have created additional organizational changes, allowing for 12 Danos team members to take on new positions within the company.
Among these new positions, Mike Guidry, who currently serves as operations manager, will move to a new role as general manager of production. A resident of Cut-Off, Guidry has been with Danos for 25 years and was named Danos’ Staff Employee of the Year in 2009.
Additionally, Manager of Project Management Kevin Biringer will become the general manager of projects for the Permian. Biringer interned with Danos in 2013 and joined full time in 2014. A native of New Mexico, Biringer currently lives in Houston
