Tope Ogunyomi, director at Juniper Capital Advisors LP, is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.
During his 15-year career in the oil and gas sector, Ogunyomi has worked for industry giants including Anadarko Petroleum Corp., Marathon Oil Corp. and Chesapeake Energy Corp., where he was responsible for the exploration and development of some of the most prolific oil and gas assets in the Permian Basin, Scoop/Stack and Gulf of Mexico.
Though, after working for several years in the industry, he decided to pursue an MBA at the University of Oklahoma to learn more about its business side.
Today, Ogunyomi is a part of the investment team at private-equity firm Juniper Capital and has been actively involved in the Houston-based company’s oil and gas upstream investments. He also serves on the board of one of Juniper’s portfolio companies and plays a pivotal role with regards to portfolio management.
“Working in the oil and gas industry is being a part of something much bigger than myself,” he said. “Helping to fulfill the global energy demand directly impacts the well-being of people all over the world and drives economic development.”
