Michael D. Moore Moves into CEO Role at ADSC
ADSC: The International Association of Foundation Drilling reports that Michael Moore has been appointed to the position of CEO as long time ADSC Executive Director S. Scot Litke moves on to other things. Moore joined the ADSC in 2005 initially serving as the association’s Education and Membership Administrator. He was promoted to the position of Assistant Executive Director in 2006.
Litke had informed the ADSC Board that he planned to leave his post as ADSC Executive Director at the end of 2009 and recommended that Moore be appointed to take on the staff leadership role. A formal transition plan was put into effect at the beginning of 2008 with the expectation that Litke would stay on through the year working closely with Moore as he assumed tasks related to his new role. Litke will stay on as the Editor of the association’s award winning publication, Foundation Drilling magazine and will assist Moore as needed in the role of Senior Advisor.
Moore is excited about taking on the responsibilities associated with being the CEO and has been mapping out his vision of how the ADSC staff can support the wide range of activities that have been the organization’s hallmark. These include providing assistance to the association’s eight regional chapters, working with its 20 technical and operations committees, coordinating the workings of the ADSC board of directors, and continuing to enhance the ADSC’s successful education and unique training programs. Moore feels it is of utmost importance to maintain and extend the association’s long standing industry liaison activities such as those with federal and state agencies as well as other sister organizations in the geo-industry.
The ADSC is pleased to have Mike Moore on board to help lead the association into a very bright future.
