Seminole Energy Services LLC announced Monday that co-founder Bob Rosene has retired as CEO and president after 15 years leading the Tulsa-based natural gas midstream and marketing firm.
Rosene’s retirement took effect Monday, although he will remain as chairman of the Seminole board of managers. Reliant Energy executive Jason Few will succeed Rosene as president and CEO and will join the Seminole board.
“I look forward to a very active retirement as I continue my role as chairman, with other investments, and with my family and outside interests,” Rosene said in a statement.
“Seminole is fortunate to have Jason stepping into the leadership role at Seminole. He has my full support and confidence.”
Rosene helped start Seminole in 1998 after previously co-founding other firms such as Summit Exploration, MBR Resources and Boyd Rosene and Associates. He also worked at Transok Pipeline Co.
Few was president of Houston-based Reliant Energy from 2009 until late 2012. He also worked in executive positions at Motorola, Inc., SBC and AT&T.
