Long-time pipeline industry veteran Ted Crowe is retiring as president of Minnesota Limited LLC on May 14 after 22 years with the company. Vice president of operations Dan Britz will succeed Crowe as president.
Minnesota Limited, which operates within Artera Services LLC and is one of the nation’s leading energy infrastructure contractors specializing in transmission maintenance, upgrades and construction, announced the executive changes on May 10.
Crowe joined Minnesota Limited in 1999 as a project manager and has served as president since 2016. With more than 44 years in the industry, managing small and multi-million-dollar pipeline construction and maintenance projects, Crowe cultivated a company culture deeply rooted in core values and integrity. His leadership brought a controlled and sustained growth pattern, which has resulted in increased volume, a broadened client base, expanded fleet of company-owned equipment and, most importantly, the accumulation of highly skilled and dedicated employees. He showed a strong commitment to supporting and empowering the Minnesota Limited team.
Britz has provided core leadership and innovative, strategic planning to the operations division at Minnesota Limited for the past 13 years. In his role, he will work closely with Casey Joyce, president and CEO of Otis Eastern Service, Minnesota Limited’s sister company under the Artera Services business.
“We owe a tremendous amount of thanks to Ted for his leadership and unwavering commitment to the Minnesota Limited team,” Britz said. “His care for people and value-driven business practices have created an inclusive and energetic culture within the organization. His influence has directly impacted our future success in the energy industry.”
Crowe will continue to support Minnesota Limited in an advisory role over the next year.
Minnesota Limited was established in 1966 and is based in Big Lake, Minnesota. The company’s capabilities include new pipeline construction, maintenance and integrity, and facilities. Minnesota Limited operates across 32 states with 1,500 employees.
