HOUSTON, Dec. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Select Energy Services, Inc. (NYSE: WTTR) ("Select" or "the Company"), a leading provider of water management and chemical solutions to the U.S. unconventional oil and gas industry, today announced that John D. Schmitz will transition from Executive Chairman of the Board to non-executive Chairman, effective December 31, 2019.
Holli Ladhani, President and CEO, stated, "As the founder of Select, John has been instrumental in our overall success and culture of excellence. Over a decade ago, John was at the forefront of a nascent water solutions industry, building a unique business critical to support the growth of the shale revolution across the United States. His keen strategic insights and deep understanding of the ever-changing dynamics of the oil and gas sector have helped to position Select as the industry leader in total water management and chemical solutions with a very bright future. I look forward to benefitting from John's continued contributions and wisdom as Chairman as we continue to build on our success."
Mr. Schmitz added, "Having recently passed the two-year anniversary of our merger with Rockwater, we've accomplished the primary goals of our corporate integration and our strategy is well underway. Select is well positioned with a strong debt-free balance sheet and is in excellent hands under Holli's leadership. Therefore, I believe it is time for me to transition to the more traditional role of non-executive Chairman. I have maintained my significant ownership stake in Select and I look forward to remaining highly engaged as I continue to lead the Board of Directors."
