Pumps & Systems named Christie Twist, Manager, Gas Seals, Research & Development, to its 2022 Top 10 Pump Professionals to Watch list. The list of up-and-coming professionals—all under 40 years of age—were chosen for their roles, the education and training they've completed, the associations and boards they belong to, and the way they impact their teams, companies and the industry.
Below are excerpts from the Pump & Systems 2022 Top 10 Pump Professionals to Watch article, found on page 27:
Christie Twist got into the rotating equipment industry during her undergraduate studies at Texas A&M University, where she worked part-time at the Turbomachinery Laboratory.
“My interest was piqued then, and I have sought to stay in the industry since,” said Twist.
Twist, who earned a Ph. D. in tribology from Northwestern University, now manages one of John Crane's two Gas Seal New Product Development teams, focusing on innovating solutions for gas seals in the energy industry. Most of her training has come on the job. She said she likes the technical challenges and how passionate other industry professionals are.
“I liked how challenging and niche this industry is,” said Twist. “Only a small group of people in the world know how to design, maintain and operate rotating equipment; yet, it is essential to everyday life in the modern world.”
Congratulations to Christie Twist on this prestigious recognition.
