Brad Martin, president of Intelligent Wellhead Systems, is confident the organization’s growth derives from the foundation of having the best people in the industry, coupled with the cutting-edge technology of its products.

A 21-year veteran within the energy sector, Brad provides a depth of responsibilities to his role – including equipment, technology, and established protocol to operate trouble-free within the rough oilfield. Or, in simpler terms, Brad works with his team to reduce risk on location for IWS’ field personnel and the client’s needs and applicable assets.

Founded on the needs of the oilfield, IWS’ core products are designed for the field by those who work in the field, all providing a synergy to make operations better for personnel. This development process and mentality provided a proven track record for the organization establishing the leadership team as the best in the business.

Brad brings a great deal to the table for Intelligent Wellhead Systems; however, his relentless ingenuity and innovation stand above the others.


COO, Steve Sinclair Smith, believes the market acceptance of Intelligent Wellhead Systems is crucial to our organizational growth. Steve believes we have surpassed the early adopter’s growth phase, have a proven product, and are now building in the industry. This strength is one that organizations take years to experience, and our ability to change and meet the customers’ needs is vital to development.

With over 30 years of oil and gas leadership, Steven’s ability to lead and develop synergy in many areas, and his responsibilities are critical to Intelligent Wellhead Systems. These, plus his expertise in efficiency and cost control, as well as principal fiduciary/corporate governance, make Steve an asset to our organization.

When asked what he brings to the IWS table, Steve identifies his experience, execution, versatility, and emergence of emotional intelligence.



Employee excitement is not something one picks off the shelf, yet it’s a significant strength of Intelligent Wellhead Systems. The excitement that’s developing is felt among all facets of the organization, and Bob Duncan is making sure as IWS grows, the teams within the new product development and existing product enhancement are contributing to the overall excitement and the product’s strategic features.

Bob’s 14 years of innovative, creative problem-solving knowledge is an attribute he wants to ensure his team is mimicking, in addition to the excitement the organizing is experiencing.


Sometimes one finds it challenging to outline an organization’s strengths in terms of growth. Still, Rip Stringer, Director of Industry Affairs, was able to list several characteristics – including excellent company culture, an organization able to adapt rapidly, and rapid development and deployment of innovative products and services – to name a few.

Rip has brought over 36 years of strategic leadership and planning, in addition to his capability to build and execute revenue generation pieces within the overall business plan of Intelligent Wellhead Systems. Rip’s proficiency in managing and working with the sales team to create critical customer account plans and implement them are all key responsibilities to the success of IWS.

When asked what makes Intelligent Wellhead Systems exceptional in the market, Rip’s answers include the organization’s agility and the flexibility to customize a customer’s solution and operating procedures. Add our aptitude to provide a digital twin of the completion with bi-directional synchronization and real-time Edge and Cloud computing capabilities.

Here’s one that stumped us – Rip answers, ‘I am a purple squirrel’ when he was asked to describe what he brings to the table for IWS. Does anyone have any insight on this one?
