Until his retirement in 2015 he was the president and chief executive officer of PennWell Corp., a privately owned Tulsa-based media company founded in 1910 that publishes 75 international weekly and monthly business-to-business magazines and conducts more than 60 business-to-business conferences and exhibitions on six continents. He was also a director of American Business Media, the chief executive officer of Valley National Bank, Lake Bancshares, and Ameritrust. He was a captain in the U.S. Army.
