Houston, TX - Shale-Inland Holdings, LLC today announced the appointment of Gary Haire to the position of Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Haire is well qualified for this role, bringing to Shale-Inland more than twenty years of successful financial leadership experience. He will have responsibility for Shale-Inlands' Finance, Accounting, Tax, Treasury, and IT functions. Mr. Haire was most recently Global Vice President, Finance and CFO for Tyco Valves and Controls (now Pentair), a $2.0 billion global manufacturer of valves, actuators and control systems with more than 40 factories and 100+ locations world-wide. Previously, he served in Vice President, Finance and CFO roles for Tyco Thermal Controls and the Americas Region of Tyco Valves and Controls.
Prior to joining Tyco, Mr. Haire served in progressively more responsible finance assignments with Del Monte Foods (formerly HJ Heinz) and worked with KPMG prior to initiating his corporate career. Mr. Haire replaces Darrell Jean, who joined Shale-Inland as CFO to build the corporate finance and administrative infrastructure needed to support our new company in the near and long term. Mr. Jean successfully met that challenge and concurrently led a successful bond offering to raise the capital needed to support the company's growth objectives. With the completion of those major undertakings, Mr. Jean has now fulfilled his assignment with Shale Inland and will be leaving the company to take on new challenges. He will stay on until the end of February, 2013 to ensure an orderly transition of his CFO responsibilities to Mr. Haire.
