Experienced Industry Veteran Bolsters Lucido’s Crude & Liquids Capabilities Amid Firm’s Rapid Growth
Lucido, a specialist consultancy and software provider, announced that Elizabeth Fleming has joined the firm in the role of Director, Crude & Liquids Solutions. The RightAngle space has been a keen interest to the company since its founding and having a leader with a strong business background is a ‘must’ to make that offering a success. With Ms. Fleming, Lucido has a practice leader with exceptional business side depth and client references make her a natural fit.
Ms. Fleming has been in the crude, refined products, and renewables space for the bulk of her career, later moving into technology roles where she proved successful at system selections, overseeing product implementations and “project rescues”. Given the nature of the present CTRM landscape, knowing how to develop technologies and leverage non-customized functionalities of existing platforms is critical to client success. Although the practice will focus on the RightAngle client base, the role emphasizes providing optimal client solutions more than a myopic focus on a legacy platform.
“Elizabeth stood out from her peers with her passion for the work – she absolutely fits our ‘solution architect’ approach to project delivery,” said CEO, Sean Kilpatrick. “Speaking with her former colleagues and clients in the market simply reiterated what we had seen during the course of her interviews. We are excited for her to be leading this space at such a critical time in the market.”
Prior to joining Lucido, Ms. Fleming headed up commercial systems at Delek Holdings and, prior to that, served a variety of RightAngle clients as a Senior Functional Consultant at Triarc Solutions. Elizabeth also worked for Pilot Flying J and held a number of business and technical roles at Love’s Travel Stops/Musket Corp.
“I feel privileged to have the opportunity to join Lucido and to work with such a respected and skilled team of people. Our main goal in adding a RightAngle practice to the group is to allow more clients access to our talented and capable team,” commented Ms. Fleming. “There are many options for services in the RightAngle space so it can be difficult to navigate and discern which service providers can maintain quality and integrity in the delivery of solutions. Lucido’s reputation aligned well with my goals of developing client relationships and driving projects that avoid duplication of cost and effort – there are a lot of opportunities in the market to create great client outcomes.”
