Ben Heinzelmann, president of Energy Domain, is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.

As a third-generation businessman, Heinzelmann said he got his passion for oil and gas from his grandfather. However, the success he has found in the field since then has been self-made. 

It was in college though where he said he first fell in love with the business and has worked hard to ensure he stands apart from other industry titans.

“I was fortunate to have family roots at the University of Oklahoma where I had the opportunity to study within the best Energy Management program in the country,” he said. “I immediately fell in love with the business, and I’m not sure I would ever want to do anything else.”

Since then, Heinzelmann has worked to grow his MineralWare business and its sister company, Energy Domain, the latter of which he is president.

“In 2019 we decided to branch off and start Energy Domain (our online marketplace) as a sister company to MineralWare,” he said. “This was a risky move because MineralWare was very self-sustaining, and we could have comfortably continued to run that business and been stable long term.”

Still, Heinzelmann said the team he assembled for Energy Domain was unbelievably resilient and essentially built a brand new product from the ground up all during the incredible uncertainty that resulted from COVID-19.

“We have a long way to go, but I think it is important to look back and appreciate the resiliency and fortitude that we showed to get where we are today,” he added.
