“We’re extremely proud to have not one – but two finalists in this year’s D CEO’s Energy Awards,” stated Joseph DeWoody, CEO of Valor. “I can’t think of two more deserving individuals than Adam and Matt, both of whom have made considerable contributions not to just our company, but also to the industry as a whole.” DeWoody was named Energy Services and Technology Executive of the Year in the 2021 D CEO Energy Awards.

Now in its fifth year, the D CEO’s Energy Awards were created to recognize and honor outstanding individual leaders in the oil and gas, energy finance, and renewable sectors who continue to innovate and propel the industry forward. Nominations are open to industry players from East Texas to the Permian Basin, provided there is a strong North Texas tie. Both Powell and Autry will join the other 26 finalists at a special awards presentation in October where the winners will be announced, and all will be featured in the November issue of D CEO.
