A Few Good Minutes with Steve Spotts
When Steve Spotts joined Sloan Lubrication Systems in February as our vice president of sales and marketing, he had to hit the ground running for the company. Just like your business and those around the globe, companies and work environments changed drastically leading into and navigating through the pandemic. But Steve didn’t miss a beat and we had no doubt that he wouldn’t.
With more than three decades of leadership and management experience with large, multi-national companies like Dow Chemical, Calgon Carbon, Emerson Electric and Sperian Protection (acquired by Honeywell) in roles as process and production engineer, product manager and marketing, Steve brings a wealth of business acumen, strategic and goal planning skills and operational expertise to Sloan Lubrication Systems.
“Steve is an integral part of the senior team and instrumental in charting the path of growth for our company,” said Brian Sloan, CEO, Sloan Lubrication Systems. “His leadership skills, vision for the company and overall genuine personality are perfect for our company. We are excited for what is to come under Steve’s leadership.”
Steve sees sustainability as a key driver in many markets and oil and gas is no different. “Gas quality downstream of compressors is a huge issue and companies are looking for ways to avoid putting excess lube oil into their gas streams to avoid costly measures to take it out later,” according to Steve. “Sloan is poised to capitalize on these trends through our new products and expanded field service team. The company’s 100-year track record, willingness to invest in people and innovation and dedication to technology influenced my decision to come on board.”
Born in Franklin, Pennsylvania, Steve grew up south of Erie in the town of Waterford. He graduated from the Pennsylvania State University with a degree in chemical engineering and split Commonwealth allegiance when he earned his MBA from the University of Pittsburgh. Along with his wife, Christine, this father of four overachieving and talented children, enjoys backyard grilling, family vacations to Disney properties, the beach and saltwater fishing. Welcome Steve to the Sloan Lubrication Systems’ family.
