Meet Stacy Campbell, Billing Specialist

Stacy has been involved with sales and customer support, profiling and testing, plant operations, implementation of our new billing system, and our daily finance operations. She is an incremental part of the Valicor team and is recognized by co-workers as proactive and always willing to go the extra mile. 

"Staying involved with team members and respective divisions across the company has allowed me to really understand processes and learn what it takes to complete necessary tasks, as well as improve them as challenges arise", said Stacy.  

Meet Bob Cook, SVP of Engineering & Technology

Bob Cook-1

Bob joined Valicor in July 2021 as EVP of Engineering and Technology Development. He currently manages Valicor’s process engineering and development lab out of its new Houston, TX location. His team provides operational support and troubleshooting, new application development, and works with various partners and vendors to improve existing CWT’s operational and safety performance. 

Bob's chemical engineering background is lengthy. He received his B.S. in ChE from the Pennsylvania State University and began working as a process engineer performing ceramic membrane pilots. In 1994, he formed a company (MET) and moved to Houston, TX, where he developed a caustic regeneration process based on reaction crystallization. While at MET, he served as Technical Manager and helped establish the company as the preeminent provider of byproduct recovery services for specialty chemical and refining industries. The company was acquired by USFilter (retained by Veolia after sale of USFilter) where he served as the SVP of Engineering and Technology development for Veolia North America Industrial, prior to joining Valicor.
