TULSA, Okla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Getka Energy LLC (“Getka”), a crude oil logistics company, today announced the appointment of seasoned energy and finance executive Craig Peus as chief financial officer. Mr. Peus is the first major addition to the Getka management team since inception. Getka Energy was formed earlier this year to provide storage, blending and terminal solutions, as well as pipeline transportation and market optionality for producers across North America and domestic and international marketers. Getka is backed by EnCap Flatrock Midstream.
“Craig has a rich background in energy and finance and brings both investment banking and hands-on operations experience to our team,” said Getka Energy CEO Dariusz Cichocki. “He knows the crude oil business inside and out and has a passion for it. His expertise will be a great asset as we evaluate opportunities in the Midcontinent, including brownfield acquisitions and greenfield development of crude oil infrastructure.”
Prior to joining Getka, Mr. Peus served as President & CEO of Gravity Midstream.

Peus is a graduate of Stanford University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in biological sciences. A native of Santa Barbara, California, Peus has lived and worked for extensive periods in New York City, San Francisco, Newport Beach (California) and Houston, and he is now proud to call Tulsa home with his wife and three children.
