Bautista succeeds Paul G. Vitek, who is retiring after 20 years with CARBO, as chief financial officer.

CARBO Ceramics Inc. recently announced that it has appointed Ernesto Bautista III vice president, effective January 20, 2009. Bautista will assume the position of chief financial officer, succeeding Paul G. Vitek, who is retiring after 20 years with CARBO.

“Mr. Bautista has outstanding experience in the oilfield industry and will be a strong complement to the experienced management team we have in place,” said Gary Kolstad, president and chief executive officer. “2008 has been another strong year of growth for CARBO, and Ernesto has the energy and background necessary to help our team continue to expand in the future.

“For over 20 years, Mr. Vitek has been instrumental in growing this company and transforming it from a privately held company to a New York Stock Exchange-listed company with one of the industry’s strongest financial positions. His enthusiasm for the people and products of the company has helped guide CARBO to the leading position it holds in the industry today.”
