  1. Looks like he’s taken Stream from 2 people to 150 people in 12 years. Pretty impressive. Might be exactly the type of person that we need. Young but experienced in a skill (org growth) that is will be very useful to TPL.


  2. I think he is an excellent pick. He is not from the Oil and Gas industry, so has not learned their bad habits. With a Houston CRE career, he is used to working with a lot of energy companies. Am sure he is no stranger to deals with 7 and 8 zeros.

    He has deep roots in Texas, and seems driven based on his track record at Stream. His skills are needed for the type of future TPL has to best monetize their assets. He can grow a team of people in a new organization. Am impressed with how he has grown the Houston operation.

    Also, he probably has a high enough income to be able to buy more than a 100 shares of TPL, and the brains to understand why sending that message is important.

    And back to my “coiled spring” analogy….the ratchet just tightened the spring further. So many things are strongly positive for TPL. The next few years are going to be very interesting!

  3. On the surface this nomination scares me! Read his bio. He is young and very aggressive. Stock buy backs will slow down or end.
