Mike Kifer, vice president of acquisitions and reserves for Houston-based EnerVest Ltd., is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.
Kifer became attracted to the oil and gas industry while completing his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. The “fundamental benefits to society provided by the safe, reliable and affordable energy resources we produce” appealed to him, he said.
In tandem with his industry career, Kifer maintains his commitment to the good of others by supporting “charitable organizations in the Houston area focused on the homeless community such as Star of Hope.”
“At EnerVest, we regularly volunteer our time at the Houston Food Bank and Buffalo Bayou Partnership,” he said. “I’m passionate about working in this industry because we provide the energy sources and products that make our privileged way of life possible.”
A career milestone, he said he’s proud to have reached is the promotion at EnerVest to his current role of vice president of acquisitions and reserves.
“The role has been held by some outstanding professionals over EnerVest’s history, and I have the privilege of working with a talented group of people,” he said. “It is exciting to have an impact on the future growth of our company, and I take the responsibility very seriously.”
