Josh Robbins, CEO, Beachwood Marketing, gives an update from NAPE in Houston, TX. According to Robbins, this year’s NAPE was filled with people “hustling” for business and optimism for 2019. Innovation was another major theme at this year’s NAPE.
Robbins then discusses the integration on millennials into the oil and gas industry and how the discussion is currently being had about succession planning for the industry.
Beachwood Marketing focuses primarily on off-market oil and gas assets, to see deals form from inception. They talk with nearly 1,600 oil and gas firms a month, and live in the A & D market day in and day out, discovering new deals every single day. It’s through this targeted marketing that they are able to see deals that are not on the market.
Beachwood strives to partner with top tier oil and gas firms to find off-market deals that provide maximum benefit to their corporate acquisition strategy.
Josh Robbins is currently the Chief Executive Officer of Beachwood Marketing. He has consulted and provided solutions for several industries, however the majority of his consulting solutions have been in manufacturing, energy and oil and gas.
