U.S. Silica Holdings Inc. announced the appointment of Daniel Miers as president of SandBox Logistics, a wholly owned subsidiary of U.S. Silica, effective June 25, 2018. Miers succeeds former SandBox founder and president Josh Oren in this role.
Oren plans to retire at the end of the month but has agreed to stay on until the end of the year as a consultant to support Miers in the transition. Miers will join the company’s extended leadership team and report to Brad Casper, executive vice president and chief commercial officer.
Miers brings a tremendous level of depth and industry experience to lead SandBox, having served most recently as the chief operating officer for Gulfstream Services, a leading supplier of tools and services to the oil and gas industry.
Prior to his role at Gulfstream Services, Miers served in various positions of increasing responsibility at Key Energy Services. He has broad management experience across major functional areas including global operations, sales and marketing, finance and M&A.
“I believe Daniel is the perfect choice to lead SandBox and take it to the next level,” said Bryan Shinn, president and chief executive officer. ”He has had tremendous success throughout his career in building oilfield service businesses and has a proven track record of growing both the top and bottom lines of companies in our industry. I’m very excited about the prospects for continued growth at SandBox and the unique opportunities we have to help our customers manage their last mile-logistical challenges,” he added.
“I’m very excited about the opportunity to lead such a dynamic organization as SandBox, an innovative, clear market leader when it comes to containerized solutions for last-mile logistics,” Miers said. “I’m fully committed to ensuring that SandBox stays keenly focused on successfully growing its business, serving its customers safely and reliably and maintaining the company’s industry-leading market position.”
