Guy C. Holcomb | Land Manager
Born in San Antonio, Texas in 1979. His father was a coach, so his family moved frequently until living in Needville, Texas where Guy graduated high school with honors. He was an All-District football player and team captain as well as participating in debate club, track, and golf. In college, Guy played rugby and pursued an undergraduate degree in Kinesiology at Texas A&M University until leaving school to become an Oil and Gas Landman. Later in 2016, he graduated with a Bachelor’s in History, English and Exercise Science from Texas Tech University.
During his early years in the Oil and Gas business, he became familiar with running title, leasing, courthouse indices and document imaging which built a solid foundation for his later experience as a field landman. During his career he has worked in 57 Texas Counties (and counting) as well as working in Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Colorado, Montana & Illinois.
Guy’s most recent experience in the Oil & Gas business was spent learning about the Mineral & Royalty buying side. His duties have included confirming interests and data management. He has also been successful in managing acquisitions in the Permian and Delaware Basins.
Guy has been married to his wife Nancy since 2006 and they share a 12-year-old son. He enjoys learning about history and in his free time “Coach Guy” volunteers to coach youth flag football, basketball, and baseball. Playing sports and coaching has played a major role in his life and in developing his leadership paradigms.
