Chairman’s Letter


Every industry experiences cycles that may impact businesses significantly. Perhaps the oil and gas industry is one of the most cyclical and can be influenced by many extremes, including severe weather—like Hurricane Harvey—to the proposed new tariffs. As the hub of the country’s energy industry, Houston is front and center in responding to this dynamic industry.

The three industry experts addressing our guests at our recent Energy Breakfast Forum shared their perspectives about the factors impacting the power and oil and gas markets, and how it may affect our businesses. I invite you to read the recap from the event for some immediate insights. And because this fascinating industry has a profound effect on us all, we’ll also be posting soon our eBook from the event, which provides a high-level summary of their insights.

Thank you to Sanjiv Shah of Simmons & Company International, Paul Perea of Tudor, Pickering, Holt and Co., and John Berger of Sunnova Energy. You don’t want to miss their outlook about the year ahead for the energy industry, including the central role of Texas in the growth ahead.

Culture Pride

BoyarMiller’s culture is an expression of our how we work, our behaviors, our beliefs, and our interactions with each other and those beyond our office walls. While we talk about our culture internally, it lives and develops organically in each one of us, then expands to our relations with our clients. I recently heard several members of our firm talking about what makes BoyarMiller different, and they discussed culture. It was a proud moment.
