Scott Van Sickle, CEO of Revolution Resources, is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.

Backed by Mountain Capital Partners LP, Revolution Resources is an E&P company aiming to take a revolutionary approach to efficient and effective production management. Van Sickle formed the company in 2018 when it made its first acquisition of Midcontinent assets from Gastar Exploration.

Revolution followed up with the $201.5 million acquisition of Jones Energy in early 2020, which Van Sickle described as by far his most memorable undertaking.

“At the time this occurred, Revolution only had eight total office employees,” he noted.

However, Van Sickle considers starting Revolution, in general, as his greatest career milestone.

“What helped me reach this sooner than expected ultimately boils down to taking risks,” he said. “I personally took on material risk by doing what I did. Revolution’s equity sponsor also shared in this risk as well by supporting me—which happens with any PE investment involving a new management team.”
