Developing, Leading Vortex’s Global Marketing Strategy 

Jaclyn (Jackie) Herrera has joined Vortex Companies LLC, in the newly created position of chief marketing officer, to drive the fast-growing company’s global marketing strategy. 

An award-winning marketing professional with nearly 20 years of experience, Herrera spent the first half of her career working at two Houston-based marketing agencies, where she quickly rose through the ranks into leadership positions. 

In 2010, she joined The Weir Group’s Oil & Gas Division to head-up its global marketing and branding efforts, after it entered a new market in the Upstream Land Sector. Over the course of 10 years, Herrera served multiple roles, including overseeing the company’s marketing communications, branding, wellhead business development and sales programs. She also led the Artificial Lift product line and led operations for the North America Wellhead manufacturing plant. 

“Jackie fills a void at the executive management team level.,” said Mike Vellano, Vortex CEO. “She brings a unique blend of marketing, brand building, sales and even operational experience that will help us harness and execute our message more consistently, as we continue to extend our worldwide reach,”
