DARIEN, Conn. -- “Following Oil” author Thomas A. Petrie, will be the Darien Library’s featured speaker Wednesday, May 28, at 7 p.m.
In a forty-year career as an oil and gas investment analyst and as an investment banker and strategic adviser on petroleum-sector mergers, acquisitions, and financings, Petrie has witnessed dramatic changes in the business. In "Following Oil," he shares lessons he has learned about domestic and global trends in population and economic growth, a maturing resource base, variable national energy policies, and dynamic changes in geopolitical forces — and how these variables affect energy markets. He applies those lessons to charting a course of energy development for the nation as the twenty-first century unfolds.
Petrie is chairman of Petrie Partners in Denver. He formerly served as a vice chairman of Bank of America/Merrill Lynch and was vice chairman of Merrill Lynch until its acquisition by Bank of America in 2009. Petrie co-founded Petrie Parkman & Co., a Denver- and Houston-based energy investment banking firm that merged with Merrill Lynch in 2006. Petrie graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and earned a master's of business administration from Boston University and received an honorary doctorate of engineering from the Colorado School of Mines.
