James Lavender, Global Director of Sales
James has been in oil and gas for more than 20 years, with 75% of that time spent in inline inspection technologies. He sees the whole picture of the ILI business through his experience in business development, marketing and management. A lead client partnership creator, James also is an asset internally through his participation in developing new products and services. He champions the motto that Entegra’s goal is to be problem-solvers: “We are not meeting with clients to tell them who we are, we meet with them to see what they need and how we can help.”

Collaborating with top operators and technical experts to drive new solutions for industry challenges is one of James’ specialties, and he has led and participated in multiple R&D projects for ILI technology. His approach to cooperation and ethically-driven solutions makes him a partner with many operators that rely on deliverables and trust.

James has a BA in Marketing from the University of Houston, and his dedication and curiosity for knowledge has led him to complete many additional trainings and certifications. He is married and has two children with whom he loves to spend time fishing, hunting and skiing in the winter.
