Pneumatech recently named Wendy Foster as director, North America sales-oil & gas and rental to lead the company’s expansion in those key industry markets.

Foster has more than a decade of experience in the rental business with parent company Atlas Copco, primarily working with customers in the oil and gas industry. In her new role, she will be responsible for generating new sales opportunities for Pneumatech in the oil and gas industry while simultaneously increasing its presence in the industrial rental business.

“Pneumatech is very fortunate to add someone with Wendy’s extensive experience and deep relationships in both the oil and gas industry and rental business to our team,” said Pneumatech president Ellen Steck. “She will be an invaluable asset as we continue to expand Pneumatech’s growth opportunities in these critical sectors, while maintaining the first-class customer service that our customers expect every day.”

Most recently, Foster served two years as fleet manager for Atlas Copco Rental, where she was responsible for a $100-million-plus rental fleet of industrial oil-free, oil-flooded, electric and diesel compressors, as well as air dryers, servicing customers in the United States and Canada.

Prior to that, Foster spent nearly three years with Atlas Copco Specialty Rental as rental software operations manager, providing supervision and training for a system-wide conversion to new rental management software at locations in more than 50 countries. She also served as general manager at Atlas Copco Prime Energy in La Porte, Texas, where she generated average monthly rental revenue surpassing $1 million.
