John Reader

“Over the years I have been constantly amazed (and dismayed) by the amount of unwisely invested capital in the energy sector, often resulting in little returns and even severe losses. My goal has been to allow clients to benefit from my experience so they can manage their risks and achieve strong results from any point in the investment cycle.”

Sheila Reader

“I am committed to providing high quality analysis and guidance to our clients to enable them to maximize value and generate extraordinary results from their assets, including both the physical asset base and their human resources.”
