Eric J. Kruseman
Vice-president & CFO
Eric Kruseman is the Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer of ATI. I have been with ATI since 2003. Since joining ATI I have had the privilege to work with PEMEX and other National Oil Companies in China and Brazil. I have been involved in negotiations with a lot of the projects that we have successfully performed throughout the years and have obtained knowledge and understanding about doing business in other countries. When dealing with different countries it’s important to understand their cultures and ways of doing business. Having been exposed to that diversity has given me a lot of knowledge about different tax and accounting issues which are critical to understand. Being in a small company has its advantages where you have to be able to wear a lot of different hats and be able to do and solve many problems and situations that may come to light.
From 1981 – 1984 I obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in accounting and finance from Houston Baptist University in Houston, Texas. I am a Certified Public Accountant since 1990 and have worked in both public accounting and in industry. In public accounting I worked in consulting, auditing and tax services so I have a fairly diversified background. In industry I worked for Global Compression Services which is an Oil Field compressor manufacturing company that serviced the Oil & Gas industry in the United States and worldwide which was later purchased by General Electric.
Prior to becoming a Certified Public Accountant I was a tennis instructor at Westside Tennis Club for 6 years. As a young man I was the #1 junior tennis player in El Salvador, Central America and I represented my country in numerous international events. I had a tennis scholarship at Houston Baptist University and played both singles and doubles for the school. At the present time I continue to play at a State and National level for my age division and have rankings in both.
I’m a proud father of two children who are currently in their early 20’s. My son, who is the oldest, graduated from the University of Houston, currently works for Apple in the corporate offices in Austin, Texas. My daughter has graduated from University of St. Mary’s in San Antonio and is currently continuing her studies to become a physical therapist. My daughter also played competitive tennis and had a tennis scholarship at the school where she was #1 on her tennis team.
Although a US Citizen for over 30 years, I was born in El Salvador, Central America and I’m bilingual in both Spanish and English. I live in Houston, Texas and this is where our company is headquartered.
