OVS Group, LLC today announced that Larry Denver has joined the company as President. Jose N. Alvarez, the founder and previous President and CEO, will maintain his role as CEO as the company moves forward.
Prior to joining OVS Group, LLC, Larry served as a senior executive in a broad variety of companies from large public entities to pure startups. He served most recently as the President of Knowledge Reservoir, LLC, a reservoir consulting group with offices in Houston, London, Muscat and Kuala Lumpur. Previous to Knowledge Reservoir, he served as a senior manager or board member of Ascend Geo (an Aspect Energy company), Tracestone LLC, Input/Output, Simmons Company Fund (SCF Partners), World Oil Magazine, and Schlumberger GeoQuest.
“We believe Larry is an excellent fit with OVS”, said Jose Alvarez, CEO of OVS Group. “We have grown dramatically over the past few years and we are now transitioning from being a startup to a mature commercial provider. In this transition, we recognize that we need to establish a broader platform of processes and expand our senior team in areas beyond our technical roots. With Larry on board, I will be able to maintain my focus on our technical strategy and delivery while Larry manages the operational and commercial aspects of our growth. We doubled our business last year and we are likely to double again in 2012. That kind of growth requires broader commercial processes, and we have engaged Larry to help us establish these practices as our market continues to expand.”
Founded in 2009, OVS Group delivers technology and process innovation to oil and gas clients world-wide for improved asset management and increased operational performance using the OVS core software technology. A globally-recognized expert team, top-tier energy industry clients, and decades of commercial software success form the foundation of OVS Group.
