Getka Group, a Tulsa-based midstream hydrocarbon operator with extensive pipeline and terminal asset experience in the U.S. and Canada, has appointed Odgers Berndtson U.S.’s Chief Operating Officer, Kennon Kincaid, to its Board of Advisors.
A first mover in zero-impact energy transitions, Getka Group is working to modernize hydrocarbon infrastructure by minimizing carbon output. Headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Getka employs a blend of alternative energy sources (mainly solar and wind energy) to build, update, and maintain traditional hydrocarbon transportation and delivery mechanisms. The company is committed to using the latest technology to operate carbon-zero construction equipment and road fleets, and is also working closely with local governments in both Oklahoma and Europe on a number of environmentally minded job-creation initiatives.
“We are thrilled that Kennon will be joining Getka’s board of advisors,” said Dariusz Cichocki, CEO and President of Getka.
“As someone with an extensive diplomatic background who understands how to build teams and lead growth and diversification strategies, he will bring a wealth of global experience and knowledge to our group. Kennon’s expertise and ingenuity will be an incredible asset to our team as we look to transform the oil industry.”
Working with their strategic partner Unimot, a Polish Energy company, Getka is committed to providing competitively priced American oil to countries in Eastern Europe, expanding their supply options while improving their economic independence and stability. Kennon’s expertise will contribute to Getka’s ability to navigate domestic and international government channels and facilitate similar overseas energy transactions.
As the COO of Odgers Berndtson U.S., Kennon oversees the firm’s U.S. operations and is the Co-Head of its U.S. brand extensions: Berwick Partners and Odgers Interim. Prior to joining Odgers, Kennon spent more than a decade as a U.S. diplomat before joining Rocket Lab, a cutting-edge aerospace company and launch service provider, where he established and then led the international business development, security operations, and international government relations functions.
“I’m delighted to be part of Getka’s advisory team,” said Kennon. “The company is taking a leadership role in the transformation and modernization of hydrocarbon infrastructure, working to clean up the environment while simultaneously optimizing the delivery of North American hydrocarbons abroad to drive economic growth. I am honored to work with Getka to create and implement the best practices of the future for the energy sector.”
