Lacey Falls, CFO of AEGIS Hedging Solutions, is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.
Headquartered in The Woodlands, Texas, AEGIS Hedging enables companies to manage their commodity price and interest rate risk through leading software and advisory capabilities through a SaaS-enabled energy/commodity trading and risk management (E/CTRM) and analytics platform. Falls was promoted to serve as CFO at the firm in February 2021 and currently leads all financial strategy and operations as AEGIS continues to execute on its growth plans.
“AEGIS is just beginning its growth journey, and I am excited to be a part of the leadership team,” Falls said.
Since joining AEGIS in 2019, Falls has played a leading role in the firm’s transaction with Trilantic Capital Partners and integration of three subsequent acquisitions, including the acquisition in May 2021 of InstaNext, a leading provider of E/CTRM software. Falls had previously served as AEGIS’ controller.
“Within a six-month period, I contributed and led several aspects of our 2020 Capital Campaign, supported closing three acquisitions and became a mom for the first time,” she said.
Prior to joining AEGIS, Falls served as a financial analyst in the oil and gas industry, most recently at Elite Compression Services where she managed the financial planning and analysis process, treasury activities, and the fixed asset process. She also previously worked at Citation Oil & Gas and, prior to that, started her career at PWC as an auditor.
“I started my career in audit at PwC with many clients in the oil and gas industry,” she said adding: “Between growing up in South Texas, where most of my family earned a living in the oil and gas industry, and working with many oil and gas clients as a third-party auditor, I always felt a draw and passion toward the industry.”
Daniel Rice, former CEO of Rice Energy who now sits on the EQT board, addressed the elephant in the room earlier this month at Hart Energy’s Energy Capital Conference.
