It is with great sadness that Hart Energy mourns the death of its former president and chief operating officer Kevin F. Higgins, who passed away at his home in Rockaway, N.J., on February 1, 2019. He was 56.
He was surrounded by his family after putting up a courageous fight against cancer.
“Kevin meant so much to us, personally and professionally. A man of honor and of the highest integrity, he was a friend, mentor and partner who possessed a dry wit and was always ready to debate you. He truly cared about Hart Energy and every one of our employees,” said Rich Eichler, CEO of Hart Energy.
“Forward thinking, analytical, driven and ever curious—Kevin was a genuine leader,” said Rey Tagle, senior vice president of data services. “He had perfected the art of motivating others with his unique balance of praise, tough love, and self-deprecating humor.”
Kevin’s loss is felt keenly by everyone at Hart Energy. It was our privilege to know and work with him.
Rest in peace, Kevin.
