Autry, who has established himself as one of Valor’s proven leaders since the company’s founding in 2018, was named president of its oil and gas division. Meanwhile, Beck, who joined the Valor team over a year ago as the director of institutional mineral management, will now serve as the new director of Valor’s land division.

In his new role, Autry will oversee and manage Valor’s ever-growing oil and gas team and work with clients to provide the company’s primary service offerings. His primary goals as the president of Valor’s oil and gas division will be to provide value and client satisfaction for both new and existing clients, while optimizing the company’s portfolio of mineral assets.
