Alberto Jimenez | Acquisitions Agent
Alberto “Beto” Jimenez was born in Port Arthur, Texas where he was raised on a ranch outside Laredo, Texas and graduated from United High School in 1997. He has worked for various drilling companies and operators which has garnered him valuable experience working directly on the pipelines, maintaining sight pads, and monitoring gate guards. This “on the front line” work history serves him well when in direct negotiations with both operators and landowners.
Beto has served in United States Marine Corps for over 20 years and held a multitude of positions during his enlistment. He completed 5 deployments in support of the Global War on Terrorism and was honorably discharged in May of 2017.

- Administrative Officer, Master Sergeant, Marine Cryptologic Support Battalion – Fort Meade, Maryland
- Senior Enlisted Advisor, Gunnery Sergeant, Marine Transport Squadron, Andrews – Andrews, Maryland
- Administration Chief, Gunnery Sergeant, 2nd Battalion 11th Marines – Camp Pendleton, California
After retiring from the Marine Corps, Beto fulfilled a dream shared by both him and his wife and they traveled the world exploring Spain, France, Italy, and the western part of the United States. He hopes to continue this travel in the future.
Beto has been happily married for 14 years and has twin girls named Araceli and Ava, ages 11, and a son named David, age 17. Beto enjoys spending time with the family, fishing, and trying to play golf.
