Presenter : Raleigh Whitehead
Presentation title: Humorous Take on Corrosion Restoration And Prevention.
Bio:       Raleigh has worked 47 years in the oil & gas sector of the energy business in both technical and supervisory positions with the last 28 years in both onshore and offshore coatings applications. After working on building a successful coatings team at Mobil in the 1990’s, Raleigh observed a pattern of “not getting it right the first time” when it came to painting projects. After much investigation and attempts at corrective action, CRAP (Corrosion Restoration And Prevention) was formed in hopes of informing the public of humorous mistakes through actual photos of CRAP. The first CRAP presentation was given to the Coatings Society of Houston in 1998 and has evolved through the years into a powerful presentation of being able to laugh at other people’s coating mistakes. CRAP is a registered trademark through the U.S. Library of Congress and is managed by its CEO, COO, CFO and CMM (Chief Muckidy Muck) Raleigh Whitehead.
