The first of the four quarterly PVF Roundtable meetings on Tuesday, Feb. 10 in Houston at the Westin Galleria will be action-packed to say the least.

The industrial pipe, valve and fittings organization will formally introduce Penn Machine’s Joe Pro as its new president. He will be introduced by outgoing President Danny Westbrook (Westbrook Mfg.).

The 2015 Roundtable opener also will feature keynote speaker Jack Gerard, president and CEO of the American Petroleum Institute, the national trade organization that represents all aspects of America’s oil and natural gas industry. Gerard is one of the most sought-after and influential industry spokesmen and will be talking to Roundtable members at a time where the world energy and American fracking expansion are at a critical juncture.

The PVF Roundtable’s winter meeting kicks off at 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 10 with the popular networking session. Dinner follows at 6 p.m. with the formal program starting shortly thereafter.
