Zack Kays is the founder and CEO of Trading Heritage International. After graduating from Texas Christian University, he began his lifelong goal of working in Oil & Gas. His experience working with Premier Pipe and CRA has equipped him with a wealth of knowledge, particularly in the areas of hard-to-find, non-traditional OCTG string designs. His time in the pipe business has taken him all over the world—from Dubai to Australia to Indonesia. Zack’s desire to build strong, trustworthy, transparent, and battle-tested relationships are what drives him everyday—whether that’s within his THI team, customers, or with suppliers. He prides himself on his ability to remain agile while solving problems with efficiency, ensuring that everyone’s needs are met at the end of the day. When he’s not solving problems or building lasting relationships, you can find him firing up the grill or spending time with his wife Juliana and his son Nash.
