Post-IPO Aris Water hires first general counsel

Company listed on the NYSE in late October

Newly public Aris Water Solutions has appointed Adrian Milton as its first general counsel, chief administrative officer and corporate secretary.

Aris Water is an environmental infrastructure company that aims to help customers reduce their water and carbon footprints. It listed on the NYSE in late October.

Before joining Aris Water, Milton was vice president and general counsel at Headlands Research, a private equity-backed clinical trial site organization. In that role he was responsible for both legal affairs and risk management.

He was previously deputy general counsel for Concho Resources, where he oversaw all legal functions such as corporate governance, securities, finance and M&A. Concho was acquired by ConocoPhillips earlier this year.

Milton began his career at Latham & Watkins, where he advised clients on corporate and securities matters.

Aris Water CEO Amanda Brock says in a statement: ‘We are excited to welcome Adrian to Aris Water’s leadership team, and to have the benefit of his legal expertise. As a key member of the Aris Water team, he will play an important role as we continue to create value and grow Aris Water.

‘We look forward to the contributions he will make to our ongoing efforts to bring transformational water solutions to our customers and other stakeholders in the Permian Basin.’
