Justin Furnace, president of the Texas Independent Producers & Royalty Owners Association (TIPRO), is resigning Aug. 12 and the organization is seeking a replacement. Candidates should have a bachelor’s degree and management experience, with solid working knowledge of the oil and natural gas business.

A search committee will contact finalists. For information, visit www.tipro.org. “This is a critical time for the oil and gas industry, and we feel confident we will find the right candidate to fill the position. In the meantime, we are very fortunate to have Rich Varela, senior vice president and a past TIPRO president, agree to serve as interim president of the association while we search for a new leader; therefore, we will not miss a beat during this transition period,” said TIPRO Chairman David Martineau.
