Dan LaPrairie

Director of Operational Excellence

“I have truly enjoyed my time at PSC. Every day comes with a new set of challenges that have allowed me to grow both personally and professionally. Though we have more than tripled in size since I started, we have been able to maintain the family atmosphere that drew me to PSC to begin with. I am honored to be a part of the PSC family, and I believe that we all have been given a unique opportunity to be a part of a great organization that values individuals.”

He is responsible for directing our HSE, Operations Training, and Compliance programs and activities.
