ASU Business Lectureship to Feature Energy Company CEO
Angelo State University’s 2008 Wells Fargo Distinguished Lectureship in Business will welcome W. Mark Low, founder and CEO of Juno Energy LLC and a 30-year veteran of the oil and gas industry, as its featured speaker Thursday, Oct. 30, in the ASU Auditorium.
Low will present his lecture, “It’s the Easy Things that are the Hardest,” at 11 a.m. Oct. 30. The ASU Auditorium is located in the Mayer Administration Building, 2601 W. Ave N. The lecture is open free to the public.
Under Low’s direction, Juno Energy LLC operates about $50 million worth of oil and gas producing properties in the Permian Basin. The company has drilled more than 50 new wells since early 2007 and boasts monthly revenues of about $2 million.
A 1978 graduate of ASU, Low spent 24 years with Arthur Andersen LLP in Dallas, where he advanced to oversee the company’s North American Oil and Gas Industry Practice from 1996-2002. In that position, he oversaw the $500-million-a-year practice and assisted clients with acquisitions in excess of $2 billion.
Low has also served as chief financial officer for Peak Energy Resources Inc. and Momentum Energy Group Inc., overseeing all financial and accounting functions for the energy exploration and development entities. In addition to Juno Energy LLC, Low is also the founder of Fossil Creek Resources LLC, an energy exploration venture in the Rocky Mountain region.
The Distinguished Lectureship in Business was established in 1995 and is underwritten each year by Wells Fargo Bank of San Angelo. Now in its 13th year, the lectureship is designed to provide ASU students and the public with exposure to well-known business leaders and help strengthen the relationship between the San Angelo business community and ASU.
