Brady brings over thirty-five years of progressive industry experience to Vortex. After several years of field experience, Brady spent most of the 1980’s managing the development program for Jiro Oilfield Supply, a company that was ultimately sold to C.E. Franklin. Brady went on to establish Enhanced Recovery Systems where he, in collaboration with Jiro Manufacturing, developed natural gas applications for screw compression technologies.
Through a series of acquisitions, Enhanced Recovery Systems was ultimately acquired by Enerflex Systems, where Brady established himself as a senior leader until the fall of 2003.
After working for a year as a consultant with Canadian Natural Resources, Brady joined CH4 Compression Services as President and General Manager. CH4 Compression Services ultimately merged with several companies to establish Strad Energy Services where Brady assumed a leadership role as Executive Vice-President for the Production Services Division. Brady was a key member of the executive team that ultimately brought the company public and played a key role in several major transactions for the company.
In 2012 Brady lead the employee buyout of the Production Services Division from Strad Energy, as President and CEO of its successor company, Vortex Production Services.
