Flotek CEO builds fast on past successes

Flotek CEO builds fast on past successes

Jay Ball, the Chief Executive Officer of Flotek Group

We’ve been featured in the November 2022 Comms Dealer Magazine with a write up on our very own CEO, Jay Ball – to read more click here

We’ve taken a small snippet from the business profile which includes “Just a minute with Jay Ball…”

Role model: Charles Dunstone: He has incredible vision of this industry and is always one step ahead. 

Your main strength and what could you work on?

My strong points are vision, drive and passion. But I need to work on patience, detail and working too much. 

If you weren’t in ICT what would you be doing? 

Working in the financial market. I have a fast paced way of looking at financials and making good decisions. 

Tell us something about yourself we don’t know: I teach scuba diving in my free
time and love to wreck dive. 

Three ideal dinner guests: Charles Dunstone, to hear his vision of the future in
ICT; my Grandad who was a huge role model in my life; and Steve Jobs to get his
view on the next big thing. 

One example of something you have overcome: The change from PBX to cloud. We went from one per cent to 100 per cent cloud within a year. 

In hindsight: If I had invested in people with different skills to my own I could
have grown the business I exited to greater levels. 

Best piece of advice you have been given? To look at someone’s problem
through their eyes. 

How would you like to be remembered? As one of the good guys of the industry
who was always on the end of a call to help someone. 

What talent do you wish you had? 

To mind read: It would be a lot quicker to negotiate if I knew what the other party was thinking. 

Top tip for resellers: Stop doing what you’ve always done. Focus on tomorrow’s challenges and how you can help your customers be better.
