Poe has more than ten years’ experience managing U.S. and international energy industry clients, and has overseen large-scale E&P, M&A and divestitures projects, the company said.
As regional manager, Poe will develop new relationships in the South Texas region and provide overall office and project leadership with current Houston clients.
He has a bachelor’s degree from Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. Poe is an active member of the American Association of Professional Landmen and the Houston Association of Professional Landmen.
“We are excited about the leadership and expertise Brian will bring to the Houston region. He offers our clients valued experience and a level of skill that will contribute to the ongoing success of Holland’s business,” said Bryan Gaudin, COO.
Holland Services is based in Fort Worth, Texas.
