Pin Oak is constructing a liquids storage terminal along a 431-acre tract near the Mississippi River in Mt. Airy. Pin Oak provides its customers with optionality through rail, ship, pipeline and truck access.

Reed joins Pin Oak after a 25-year career in the midstream business, and he recently held the post of President, LBC Americas. Reed has an extensive background developing and managing terminal businesses and is responsible for leading Pin Oak through its construction, operations and growth.
