I recently started a new position at Devon Energy. It is a great company with great people. One of my biggest challenges – as well as my biggest opportunities – is the reasonably blank canvas that this organization is. I am looking forward to implementing the things that I have been talking about here – I look forward to fighting the fights that I have indicated are important.
Two of the reasons that I accepted the position at Devon, besides the incredibly lucrative offer, are the excitement that they had to implement and move forward with some of the things that I find important, and the explicit statement that they need change for the better. It is so rare for that latter opinion to occur that I had to join and do what I could to improve things.
We will see how I do, and how well I succeed. I have high hopes and high expectations. Let us see how this goes and what I can do.
