Mr. Hollis commented, “We are fortunate to have Kristina join our team. She brings a wealth of experience in oilfield services that will help support the growth of NEOS as we build our organization and expand our global project and office footprints. Kristina has worked in all major human resource disciplines. Though she'll be working in a number of areas across the HR spectrum, one of her initial focus areas will be to continue creating the infrastructure needed to attract, develop, and retain a world-class team of geoscientists.”

Earlier in her career, Kristina co-founded Go Live Corporation, a management consultancy that led organization design and transformation and post-merger integration programs for Fortune 500 energy, EPC, and defense firms. Kristina also held roles in HR Administration for Air Liquide and BP Marine Americas. Kristina studied Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the University of Oklahoma.

Kristina added, “I am thrilled to be joining NEOS and appreciate the chance to work for an innovative, rapidly growing company that is changing the way the oil & gas industry approaches exploration and development.
