Years of experience: 40
Position: Chief Executive Officer

Jim's experience in the downstream, midstream, and upstream segments of the oil and gas industry building a reputation of integrity, communication, and candid but fair interaction. Born into an oil family, and learning fuel logistics in the Marine Corps, his first professional experiences were establishing and managing finished products trading for a family owned fuel oil distribution and retail sales company on the Gulf Coast. Jim was subsequently hired away to manage crude and products supply/distribution for a small refiner in Louisiana. The trail led to drilling and development, marketing, and transportation for several independent operators resulting in the discovery of several oil and gas fields. Being exposed to these diversities provided Jim a unique and broad industry perspective, an ability to contribute knowledge and experience to colleagues across a broad spectrum, and the leadership skills to manage the opportunities.
