Bryan Sheffield, Owner

Bryan Sheffield, founder of Parsley Energy, quickly set the stage for the successful growth of the publicly-traded independent oil and natural gas company. Within ten years, Bryan led Parsley to become the 10th largest U.S. operator by rig count, and he earned recognition among Fortune’s 40 under 40.

His latest initiative, DropShot LLC, will help young tennis athletes reach their full potential and support the Austin community. The organization launches this fall with an inaugural USTA Pro Circuit Tennis Event. 

He serves on the boards of the Texas Economic Development Corporation and Greater Austin Crime Commission, and is a member of the Texas Business Leadership Council.
