The appointment marks Flotek’s first of a series of planned senior management placements within the Group, intended to boost the firm’s organic growth strategy as it approaches two years since its formation. The Head of Sales will play a vital role in expanding Flotek’s sales efforts and cementing its position as an industry leader.
Flotek is delighted to welcome Stuart on board and is excited to see his expertise flourish within the business. Boasting over a decade of experience in the industry, Stuart has previously held key roles such as Sales Director, Head of Supplier Development, and Commercial Director, demonstrating his passion for people and business development.

Having previously collaborated with Flotek CEO, Jay Ball, at his former communications company, Stuart has been able to seamlessly integrate into the Customer Relations team at Flotek. Heading up the current 12-strong sales team, Stuart will lead them towards Flotek’s goals of growth, with plans to expand the sales team to 20+ in 2024 to win larger corporate clients and pave the way for new opportunities.
Speaking on the appointment, Jay Ball, Flotek CEO, said, “Stuart is well known in the South Wales area, and having worked with him previously, I know first-hand that his knowledge and experience will be invaluable to Flotek. With plans to grow the sales team and drive organic expansion this year, I’m looking forward to seeing Stuart utilise his industry expertise to help drive Flotek to this success by attracting new clients and new team members alike.”
Having run an impressive 13 half-marathons for the British Heart Foundation in 2023, Stuart shares Flotek’s commitment to charitable causes, and his dedication and perseverance are valuable qualities that the Flotek team is delighted to welcome.
Also commenting on his new role, Stuart added, “I am thrilled to be part of Flotek’s experienced team. I look forward to a long and prosperous journey with the company, and I already feel at home among this very talented & ambitious team.”
Following a period of exponential growth that saw Flotek acquire ten businesses; expanding its geographical footprint, service provision, and client base, the creation of this senior role marks Flotek’s dedication to organic growth in 2024. Growing the internal teams and developing senior management are priorities in helping Flotek reach new heights this year.
