Benchmark Society - Rick Muncrief & Maynard Holt

Benchmark Society


You are invited to become an inaugural member of Oklahoma Christian University’s Benchmark Society!

Inspired by the longevity and success of the University of Tulsa’s Friends of Finance, the College of Business at OC launched The Benchmark Society to develop deeper connections with the Oklahoma City business community.

As a member, you can hear from leaders in the field, speaking on their experience and offering advice.

Rick Muncrief is the Chairman and CEO of WPX Energy. He also serves on the board of the American Petroleum Institute and is the chairman of the American Exploration & Production Council.

Rick is a petroleum engineer who has nearly 40 years of upstream and midstream experience. He joined WPX after five years with Continental Resources where he was Senior VP of Operations and Resource Development.

Since coming to WPX in May 2014, Rick has led an $8 billion portfolio transformation, quickly shifting WPX’s emphasis from natural gas to oil and focusing on two core areas: the Permian and Williston basins.

He has spent the majority of his career in the Rocky Mountain and Mid-Continent regions, including 27 years with ConocoPhillips, Burlington Resources and their predecessor companies in technical and leadership roles
