Meet Our Principals

Gary Gassiott, President
Gary Gassiott’s career in oil and gas spans almost four decades. He is a technical specialist for gas lift systems and tools that are installed in oil and gas wells all over the world.
As president of ALTEC, Inc. he oversees market strategy, sales, and development of new technology. Under his leadership, ALTEC, Inc sales have increased and enjoys a solid reputation in the industry for technical aptitude and customer service.

His career began in 1982, working as a shop and service technician for McMurry Oil Tools in Lafayette, Louisiana. This position provided a solid background in design, preparation, and field installation of equipment for multiple U.S. operators.

From 1992 until 1997, Gary was a sales specialist for McMurry Oil Tools which later became Weatherford Artificial Lift. During this time, he built on the solid foundation of field experience gained in Lafayette. This tenure also gave him an opportunity to expand into an offshore environment as well as land-based wells.

In 1997, he left Weatherford for Altec, Inc., a young service company with lots of promise. His earlier field training served him well and Gary helped build the company into the service company it is today. In addition to serving North American and Gulf Coast operators, ALTEC technology and tools found their way to global wellsites, including Indonesia, Australia, Egypt, and New Zealand.

Gary helped develop and apply new types of equipment and systems which later were patented by Altec.

In 2018, he assumed the helm of ALTEC and continues to indulge his passion for technology and pioneer new approaches to gas lift to advance the industry. With his wife of 33 years, he loves spending time with his family, fishing and hunting in Louisiana.
