Keith Kimme, reserves manager at Monadnock Resources LLC, is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.

Kimme spent the bulk of his career in the consulting space, and he considers “branching out into an E&P” to be a career milestone.

“I had considered trying to pick up a geology degree and keep things moving in that direction,” he said. “When I had the opportunity to sign up with Monadnock and expand my skills, it was too good an opportunity to pass up.”

However, Kimme described his entrance into the oil and gas space as “kind of an accident.” He hoped to work at a nanotech startup in Austin after graduate school but found the market was challenged.

Eventually, Kimme found work at an oil and gas consulting firm. “It was that or running an electron microscope up in New England,” he said.
