Jeff Tillery, Managing Director & Co-Head of Research, will transition out of Research to become Co-Head of Capital Markets for TPH, effective December 1st. Jeff brings nearly 15 years of senior energy equity research experience to his new role, the last five of which also included serving as Head of Research for TPH. Jeff will Co-Head the expanded Capital Markets team with John Kennedy.
The Capital Markets group focuses on utilizing the Firm’s energy sector relationships and knowledge to raise public, private and strategic partner capital for TPH’s clients. Maynard Holt, TPH Co-President commented, “Our clients face a myriad of complex challenges and problems with respect to financing needs, particularly in today’s difficult market conditions. Jeff’s proven analyst skills and broad and deep set of corporate and institutional client relationships bring unique problem-solving capabilities and strategic perspective to TPH’s Capital Markets team. We are very excited about Jeff’s new role at the firm.”
In conjunction with this transition, W. Mark Meyer, Managing Director & current Co-Head of Research, will assume the role of Head of Research. Mark joined TPH in February of 2015 to help lead the firm’s research effort and brings almost 30 years of combined energy experience to the table, including the last 16 as a lead sell-side E&P analyst and buy-side portfolio manager. In addition, Byron K. Pope, Managing Director & Co-Head of Oil Service Research, will take over as TPH’s Head of Oil Service Research. Byron, who joined TPH predecessor firm Pickering Energy Partners as a founding member in 2004, brings both extensive sell-side and buy-side experience to his lead analyst role.
Maynard Holt further commented: “Mark’s extensive and diverse career across the energy spectrum enhances our ability to further develop our existing research product platform. Byron’s expertise and depth and breadth of relationships across the oilfield services sector are second to none. I am excited about the future of TPH’s Oil Service research franchise with Byron at the helm.”
“I want us to have the world’s best energy research. Dan [Pickering] laid the groundwork for that years ago. We are determined to complete the mission and be the absolute best,” noted Bobby Tudor, TPH’s CEO.
