About Us - Former Associates

Camille Bostick

Camille Bostick - Office Manager

Camille (Cami) Bostick had worked her way up from Secretary to Lease Analyst in the oil and gas industry by the time she arrived at the Spear Brothers Group in the fall of 2003.  She then was immediately put to work converting all our existing land and accounting systems to Petroware 2000.   She also put to good use her administrative, telecommunications, land and even property management expertise as she managed the office and financial systems in Midland for nearly fourteen years. 

As part of the SBG team, Cami also ensured that multiple office expansions and moves ran smoothly as we flexed significantly in personnel, square footage and fluorescent light bulbs over the years.  Cami’s work ethic and ability to mentor others will leave a lasting impression on all those with whom she worked. 

  

Chelsea Young Sosa - Administrative Professional

Chelsea arrived at the Spear Brothers Group in 2011 from Snyder, Texas, the self-proclaimed “Wind Energy Capital of the World.”    Her insider knowledge of how to deal with the windbags, hot air and squalls that are an integral part of this industry proved valuable as she carried out her responsibilities as receptionist and gatekeeper at SBG.   Chelsea’s previous experience working in paper-based records management helped her appreciate our electronic document imaging system as much as her experience dealing with fussy customers helped her embrace her frequent computer interactions.  Although the youngest among us at that time, Chelsea always exhibited a maturity beyond her years and was eager to learn more about every aspect of SBG including the meaning of phrases frequently tossed out during staff meetings (e.g., Bullwinkle, El Kabong, and "Boop Boop Be Do") by coworkers who were twice her age but not apt to admit it.

 

 

Mallory White

Mallory White Smith - Administrative Professional

Mallory arrived at SBG in 2006, equipped with several years of experience working with youthful clients in a pediatric medical office. Although young compared to many at the Spear Brothers Group, Mallory was able to successfully bond with the staff by utilizing interpersonal skills gained in a previous assignment (assisting residents at a local retirement center). Promoted from her initial position at SBG, Mallory provided research and accounting support for the the companies and managed the process which integrates scanned receivables into Petroware 2000.  While relatively new to the oil & gas business, Mallory continued to build knowledge every day at SBG in both the fundamentals of the petroleum industry as well as 1970’s popular culture (e.g., “Who is Keith Richards and Why?”).

Peggy Lentz - Office Manager

Peggy brought over 30 years of experience in the oil and gas industry to her position managing the office in the early years when the business was headquartered in Hobbs, New Mexico. She attended South Plains College in Levelland, Texas and gained expertise in accounting and administrative assignments while working for a variety of oil and gas companies dealing with transportation, marketing and oil field service. Deciding to kick it up a notch, she then became a realtor in Hobbs, New Mexico during the booming late 1970’s.

When she hired on in 1992, she thought she was taking on a relatively passive assignment, helping the Spear brothers keep track of royalty checks. Instead, she became responsible for installing a computerized property management system, assimilating additional interests and managing the banking and administrative tasks for several drilling deals. Peggy officially retired as Office Manager in 2004 when the main office moved to Midland; however she still ran the Hobbs office part-time. There was no rest for the weary.

What's Going On With Spear Brothers - The good, the bad, and the ugly

What's Going on with Spear Brothers

Gulf Coast Finally Takes the Plunge

Jan 29, 2016 in Web News

Last, but not least, this month Gulf Coast Oil and Gas Company will join a number of our other companies who consolidated their leases into the pool which now holds the majority of our oil and gas interests: Realeza, Trabajo, and Tierra Del Spear. Come on in, Gulf Coast, the water is fine! (considering the plunging price of oil, the water is not only fine, but investing in it may in fact be more profitable)

Austin Suspends "Weird" Reputation for Five Months

Jun 05, 2015 in Web News

SBG welcomes back Nelson, who spent the first five months of 2015 in Austin serving the Texas Legislature (specifically the office of Fort Worth State Senator, Konni Burton). While there, he played a key role in the crafting and passage of a bill that would greatly reduce the amount of superfluous paperwork Texas teachers are currently drowning in (yes, you heard right, it is an attorney-initiated measure to reduce paperwork).  He also helped to craft and pass several resolutions including one that encourages the soon-to-be-relocating US Africa Command to make their new home here in the Lone Star State (miles and miles of land currently available because... well, it is Texas).  Now, with the long days of wrestling politicians and traffic behind him, Nelson returns to Midland, glad for the experience and ready to rejoin the normal, serene work environment at SBG.  Welcome back, Soldier.

Apocalypse When?

Jul 28, 2014 in Web News

When a newsletter from Faith Comes by Hearing arrived this month with a story about the "End of the Spear," it captured, not surprisingly, our immediate attention. Upon further reading (fortunately, the article included pictures), we were relieved to discover the reference was to a compelling movie about the Waorani people of Ecuador, and not the code name for an assassination plot against the Spear brothers. According to the article, when FCBH provided the Waorani's their first audio bible this summer they were greeted with a reception far more pleasant than the one received by a group of Americans that visited them in 1956 (all deceased, 1956). Greatly heartened to know the full explanation, SBG recently greeted Ken Edwards of FCBH with a likewise pleasant reception, even allowing him full access to a set of sharp silverware at lunch. (Any push to accelerate finalization of SBG's Disaster Recovery Plan would be purely coincidental at this time.)

That Ain't No Bull... anymore

Nov 12, 2013 in Web News

What do rifles, fishing rods and castrations all have in common?  While a valid first guess would be that they all represent fragments of Shane and Nelson's collective childhood memories, they are also part of the boy-to-man experience at a unique camp in Snyder, Texas called "Ranch at the Crossroad."  Over lunch today we learned that young men hand-picked by coaches at the local high school spend a week each summer at this camp, wrestling with all of these activities (plus a steer or two) while building character traits like respect and honor.  Sensing an imminent enrollment request, ranch director, Dave Bilderback, quickly directed us to one of his YouTube inspirational videos instead.

Yea, Though I Walk Down the Hallway

Nov 04, 2012 in Web News

SBG welcomes pastors and staff from Mid-Cities Community Church who will be occupying empty office space on our floor while space of their own is being arranged.  Although the senior pastor claims that this temporary residency is intended to assist Mid-Cities in maintaining church operations during their office transition, we have to wonder if the antics of the Spear brothers have finally reached a level commensurate with the necessity of constant spiritual supervision.
