Jasper Ventures Inc. has announced that Brent Jasper has been named president of the Jasper Ventures family of companies. The role is being passed from Jon Jasper who founded Engineering, Procurement, and Construction Inc. (EPC) in 1992.

“Jon Jasper is recognized as a highly-respected and knowledgeable process engineer in the midstream industry and he has set the bar high as a business leader and a man who is invested in his community and employees. He has built a great foundation for the next generation of leaders at Jasper Ventures,” said Brent Jasper. “Jon will continue to lead Jasper Ventures’ process engineering department and provide invaluable guidance to our executive team.” Jon Jasper will remain on staff full time and assumes the title of chairman.

“This succession plan has been underway since 2015,” said Jon Jasper. “Brent has been the driving force behind many of our recent strategic changes including the realignment of our corporate structure, purchase and build-out of our Troup, Texas, fabrication facility, and the construction of our new office building scheduled to be completed in May 2018.”

These changes were implemented to ensure that Jasper Ventures will continue to engineer, design, fabricate, install, lease, and operate world-class gas processing facilities for many years to come. In the last year, Jasper Ventures has increased employment by 300% and continues to gain market share as a key service and equipment provider in the midstream oil and gas industry.

Prior to joining Jasper Ventures as vice president of finance and accounting in February 2016, Brent was the controller and officer for nine years for an E&P and midstream company in Dallas.
