President and CEO, Momentum Energy Group Inc.
Frank Tsuru co-founded Momentum with Bill Pritchard in 2004 and currently serves as its president and CEO. He graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in petroleum engineering in 1982. Tsuru's first assignment was as a drilling and production engineer for TXO Production Corp. in Denver, Colo., and he was selected to be part of the corporate Engineering and Evaluation team that handled all of the company’s reserves and mergers and acquisitions work. Following TXO's asset sale and merger into Marathon, Tsuru founded Southwestern Production, a company focused on the coalbed methane development in the San Juan Basin of southwest Colorado. That company was sold to Conoco Phillips, and Tsuru was tapped to run the Southern Ute Indian Tribe’s midstream company, Red Cedar Gathering. In 2002 Tsuru started aka Energy, another successful midstream company for the Tribe before starting Momentum.
