Crawford joined PSI in April, bringing extensive engineering experience in pumps, piping and process systems to the role from decades spent in the Refining/Petro-Chemical and Automotive industries.
Most recently, Crawford was Senior Refining Engineer of Marathon Petroleum Company’s Capital Projects Group (Mandan, North Dakota), overseeing execution of refinery construction projects spanning wastewater, alkylation relief neutralization and sulfur units. Prior to that, he held project engineering roles with Husky Energy, Lima Refining Company (Lima, Ohio), BP Whiting (Whiting, Indiana) and consulting firms Middough Consulting (Detroit, Michigan) and IDI Group (Holland, Ohio).
