Dominique (Dom) Pere’

Co-Founder & CEO

The foundation of Dom Pere’s commercial logistics experience was set in Dubai, UAE, beginning in 2003 where he spent six years in logistics-related operations and ventures for both publicly traded and privately held firms. This work led Dom throughout the Middle East, Europe and Asia where he learned quickly how to organize, plan and execute complex supply chains in austere environments that led to greater efficiency and increased profitability. In fact, identifying and removing waste within supply chains relative to remote jobs became his niche. After returning home, Dom founded Marex Services, a maritime logistics company that launched a web-based technology called Vessel Charter. It was here he obtained first-hand experience bringing automation and efficiency to the antiquated process of procuring maritime assets for time-sensitive projects.

In 2013, Dom co-founded a proppant logistics company with multiple operations across the US shale basins. In this role, he was responsible for last mile hauling and became a dispatcher gaining a ground-floor understanding of the frac sand trucking business. He quickly realized that the last mile was plagued with pain points causing inefficient trucking operations, invoicing disputes and confusion among all parties--all of which led to cost increases. Especially problematic was the management and movement of proppant, which, as a relatively new and time-sensitive oilfield commodity, was absent of automation and a common platform for all parties to de-bottleneck the logistical issues. The industry standard for ordering, tracking, delivering and reconciling was spreadsheets and text messages, and Dom knew there had to be a better way. Soon after, PropDispatch was co-founded and launched to bring much-needed efficiency, visibility and cost savings to all stakeholders with an economic interest in last mile proppant management.

Dom holds a business degree from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge.


J. Price Nicol

Price moved to Washington, DC, shortly after Transoceanic was acquired by Agility Logistics, where he focused on last mile solutions for the US military coordinating in-country logistics for the soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as international oilfield logistics. Price continued working extensively throughout the Middle East where he worked with PropDispatch founder Dom Pere’. Price has been with PropDispatch since 2015. His initial responsibilities included training and implementation during the first generation software rollout throughout the oilfield and he is currently responsible for sales and strategic development.

Thomas Kysar

Permian Basin Manager

Thomas Kysar’s first oilfield experience was that of a sand hauler for Keane. He soon moved on to a dispatching position, learning the spontaneous logistics necessary to coordinate a frac operation, then headed out to the field to work as a sand coordinator with pneumatics on location. Soon after, he moved on to PropStream, where he found his passion as part of the first crew on the ground running the PropX container system. After growing to several fleets, he moved into the office to help restructure the logistics department to support its massive growth. Currently, Thomas is the newest addition to the PropDispatch team helping to build upon a system that will continue to change the daily lives of those out in the field.


Jason Flack

Technical Support Manager

Jason joined PropDispatch in 2015. Prior to that, he spent more than 10 years in customer service in the banking industry. It was here Jason found his passion for interacting directly with customers to provide financing solutions tailored to their individual needs. Jason joined PropDispatch in 2014 to assist in the automation of load reconciliation and carrier/driver settlements. As he gained a better understanding of the last mile business, he found that he could leverage his experience of working directly with customers to design service programs to met their needs. He moved into the technical support division of PropDispatch and is responsible for all customer support and service.


Joshua (Josh) Kam

Development Manager

Prior to his work with PropDispatch, Josh got an early start to his career in last mile oilfield logistics working as a dispatcher for a proppant logistics company that served multiple US Shale basins. From this experience, he witnessed first hand the problems and operational inefficiencies that are commonplace throughout the industry. In 2017, Josh moved into his role as a software development manager with PropDispatch. He is a vital link between customers and the software that helps them streamline, automate, and improve the overall supply-chain efficiency of last mile proppant logistics.
