John Moncrief, president of Clear Fork Royalty LLC, is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.

Moncrief grew up hearing the exhilarating stories of wildcatters and their successes and failures from his grandfather and father, and this legacy inspired him to follow in his family’s industry footsteps.

“It is because of how extraordinary these stories and accomplishments were that I am honored to carry on the adventure of my family’s legacy,” he said. “That is why I am especially excited to be involved in an industry that is in a state of evolution and innovation.”

As president of Fort Worth, Texas-based Clear Fork Royalty, Moncrief is a key player in the acquisition and management of oil and gas mineral rights and royalties in more than 30 states, some of which have ties to his family going back three generations.

Moncrief described becoming president of Clear Fork Royalty a career milestone he reached sooner than he had planned.

“I owe a great debt of gratitude to a mentor, boss and friend who taught me the intricacies and mechanics of what is required to be successful in a highly competitive and complex industry,” he added. “Not the least of these lessons were the importance of always being open to new ideas, continuously learning, exploring innovations, the ethics of hard work and always being considerate in the effective management of personnel resources.”
