Steve Robb Joins Cimation Canada as Managing Director

HOUSTON, TX and CALGARY, AB--(Marketwired - Nov 5, 2013) - Cimation, a leading provider of industrial technology solutions, announced today that Steve Robb has joined the growing organization as Managing Director for its Canadian operation. Cimation's Calgary office opened in July of this year following the acquisition of Synergist SCADA, a well-known automation provider in the region.

Mr. Robb is a veteran of the oil and gas technology industry, with more than twenty years' experience in business development, sales and marketing roles at Telvent (Schneider), Pandell, and CygNet Software (Weatherford). He joins Cimation from Weatherford where he served as both the Director of Software Solutions Marketing and the Canadian Business Unit Manager. In the course of his career, he has helped develop marketing and positioning strategies that transformed upstart technology companies into some of the most recognizable names in the industrial controls space. At Cimation, Robb's experience in product development and marketing strategy will have a tremendous impact on the organization as it continues to expand its geographic footprint, product lines, and offering portfolio.

"We are thrilled to welcome Steve into the Cimation Nation. Steve is a thought leader in the oil and gas technology space, and brings an incredible amount of knowledge to his new role at Cimation Canada," says Carl Fangue, Vice President of Operations and Strategic Development, Western Region. "Steve's appointment further reinforces our commitment to building a center of excellence in Calgary and throughout North America. With his passion for analysis, strategy and market positioning, Steve will play an instrumental role in realizing Cimation's mission to develop and deploy game-changing technology."

Control systems are the very fabric of any organization and directly impact the efficiency of their operations. Today, energy companies are being challenged to operate in a more 'manufacturing' oriented environment where increasing cyber security and safety initiatives require highly skilled, knowledgeable resources. Increasingly complex business and project environments is driving increased demand for a business partner that enables technology decisions that positively impact their client's entire operation. For Mr. Robb, Cimation stands out in the marketplace as the solutions partner leading the charge among technology focused companies.

"The technology landscape in oil and gas is shifting," says Steve. "I predict that in a decade, we'll look back and not even be able to recognize SCADA and other unique product applications that we see as indispensable today."

"Cimation stands at the intersection of operational technology and information technology, making them ideally positioned to forge the way for disruptive innovation. I look forward to contributing to the success of such a forward-thinking organization as we bring modern turnkey solutions to clients throughout North America and the world."
