Lubbock Texas Chapter
Meeting Schedule - 3rd Thursday / Monthly
Meeting Location - 4ORE Golf, 6909 Marsha Sharp FWY, Lubbock, TX
My name is Nathan Harkey. I was born and raised on a small family farm in Petersburg, Texas. After graduating from Texas Tech University in 2005 with a Bachelors in Agricultural Communications I never expected to find myself having a career in Oil and Gas. Life happens and after spending the better part of 10 years selling GPS and Asset Tracking primarily in O&G with a company called Geoforce I find myself loving the industry, even with the ups and downs we have all come accustomed to.
Currently I am the VP of Sales for a small startup called PUSHR and I have continued to remain a go to for companies looking for vehicle and asset tracking.
Being able to attend the second meeting OCI held it has been eye opening and inspiring as to what this organization has grown into, in such a short period of time. I look forward to what the future holds.
Eddie Gonzales was born in Denver City, Texas, and has spent his entire life working the Oil and Gas fields across West Texas and Eastern New Mexico. After graduating from DCHS in 1983, Eddie enlisted and served time in the U.S. Air Force prior to starting work for Shell Western E&P Inc., in 1985. He invested 27 years working for Major Oil and Gas Operations (Shell Oil, Altura Energy and Oxy) before starting work for an Engineering Procurement & Construction (EPC) company in Odessa, TX.
Eddie is currently the Corporate HSE Director for a company that specializes in high voltage electrical substation construction, maintenance and testing and is also the sole owner of a health, safety and environmental consulting company known as Common Ground HSE Management. His primary rules for performing HSE management include: structure, honesty and integrity. His main hobby is golf and he share’s the following quote from PGA Professional Gary Player, with his golf buddies: “The more I practice, the luckier I get”. (Hit’em straight Mr. G!!!)
