Lade is the former president and CFO of Rapid Hot, an oilfield services company recently acquired by Enservco. A certified public account licensed in Texas, Lade has more than 30 years of executive experience with private and NYSE-listed companies, including extensive work in the energy sector. He began his career as an audit manager with Arthur Andersen.

“Mike brings a wealth of experience in operations, corporate development, M&A and capital formation for emerging growth companies,” said Rich Murphy, executive chairman. “He has an extensive entrepreneurial background and is an accomplished turnaround specialist who understands how to drive profitable growth. We look forward to benefitting from his experience and energy.”

Lade added, “With its national footprint, blue-chip customer base and stellar reputation for quality service delivery, Enservco is ideally positioned to capitalize on growth opportunities in the highly fragmented oilfield services space. We are going to focus on increasing market share and driving profitable organic growth, as well as opportunistic M&A activity that can diversify our service mix and reduce the seasonality of our business.”

As a material incentive for entering his employment with Enservco, Lade will receive 250,000 stock options with an exercise price of $0.41 per share, with 125,000 vesting on January 1, 2024, and 125,000 vesting on January 1, 2025.
