Hunter Wallace, COO of Atlas Sand Co. LLC, is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.
When most people at Brigham relaxed after the successful $2.55 billion asset sale to Diamondback Energy Inc., Wallace did not idle. He helped “found, raise capital for and start up a company from scratch in Atlas Sand.”
He has led the Atlas team in the design, construction and capitalization of two Permian frack sand plants, each capable of producing 4 million tons per year. Atlas has broken records by being one of very few companies to start up within the published timeline and by having some of the fastest ramp-up times from startup to full capacity for both plants.
Wallace traces his tenacity back to his father, who also made a dramatic career move—from ranching to petroleum engineering.
“Growing up working with and being raised by a hard-working West Texas rancher who thinks like an engineer … [it] has given me the ability to dive in and understand most any mechanical or physical process I have ever come across in my career,” he said.
