RJ Byrd is leading the search for a Corporate Development professional with a local public company. The company is in the oil & gas industry and having experience in that area is preferred. Our client leans heavily on acquisitions to grow their organization and their industry is currently experiencing a strong recovery to further that effort. We believe this role will offer broad experience in the areas of strategy development and execution, M&A interests and divestiture of various assets for growth purposes. This role should also provide a noticeable amount of visibility in and outside the organization.
