Patrick Crump, Marcellus planning manager at Chesapeake Energy Corp., is today's featured Forty Under 40 honoree.
When he was in high school, Crump was inspired to join the oil and gas industry by petroleum students who had internships in Alaska, California and offshore Gulf of Mexico. To him, their experiences sounded so fun that he began studying petroleum engineering as well.
Crump believes that good leaders in the energy sector need to be patient, generous with their time, inquisitive and willing to take responsibility for their decisions.
"Good leaders recognize that they are often not the smartest person in the room, and their team most likely has knowledge they do not," he said. "Building relationships with their team, understanding their opinions and asking questions ultimately makes a leader more effective."
Crump would advise other young professionals in the oil and gas industry to make the best of new opportunities and that the best-suited energy individuals are well-rounded and ready to rise to the changes and challenges of the industry.
"There is always something new to fix, an opportunity to address and a challenge to rise to," he said. "The thing that excites me every day when I go to work is thinking how much of a difference I can make and how many opportunities there are to improve."
