Our Team

Partner | Joseph W. Brown

Joseph is a visionary and moves fast but you will never meet a better strategic thinker. Together with his wife, he balances family values with business opportunities.  He began his career as a surgical technician for the U.S. Navy.  This valuable experience eventually would lead him down the path of international distribution once he completing his military service.  During this distribution career the exposure to the import and export sector would set him apart from others within his industry.  He would continue his entrepreneur spirit and use his skill set to start Proppant Solutions.  Joseph has steadily increased the exposure of Proppant Solutions as a valuable asset in the ceramic proppant and frac sand markets.  Joseph continues to grow his resume within the Oil and Gas industry while adding valuable experience in sales, marketing and distribution.

Partner | Michael J. Hall

From the beginning drive and hard work has been instilled within this Logistics and Supply Chain expert.  Michael has excelled in the oil and gas sectors after completing 4 years on active duty as a U.S. Marine and a Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems from Chapman University.  These experiences eventually led him to Halliburton where he polished his skills in Strategic Sourcing and Category Management related to Cementing / Proppants.  After mastering commodity management he would continue his career at Schlumberger as a Proppant expert.  This exposure opened his career into supply chain, logistics, sales, contract negotiations and management.  It is through these relationships Michael is able to continue his growth as the co-owner of Proppant Solutions.
