John Leerkes

Vice President of Business Development

“PSC has been a wonderful fit for me. I have been able to use my technical background with the petrochemical industry in a family-oriented culture. The results we have achieved as a business over my 22-year career have been great, but the relationships that I have forged with my colleagues and customers are what have been the most rewarding for me.”



John has had his hand in growing PSC since he joined the company in 1996, starting out as the Manager of Safety, Training, and Quality. He was PSC’s first external management hire, and through the years, he has worked in a variety of leadership roles. He had been managing our Louisiana and non-Gulf Coast operations prior to moving into his current role, supporting our business development efforts, in early 2018.
 
Before joining PSC, John worked as the Logistics Manager for Chevron Chemical and then as the Maintenance Manager for Allied Signal. Originally from upstate New York, John holds a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from Clarkson University. He and his wife Bonnie live in Zachary, Louisiana. They have five children and 10 grandchildren.
