OILFIELD INNOVATOR, COMMUNITY BUILDER, JAMBA JUICER
WHO SAYS YOU CAN’T DO IT ALL?
From its inception in 1957 as an oil and gas exploration company – a wildcatter in industry lingo – Slawson Companies has diversified into commercial and residential real estate development, restaurants and hotels. Today 950 people in 10 states work for the family-owned company, where being a good corporate citizen is more than just a pipe dream.
“The Slawson Family wishes to extend their sincere condolences to the family of Aubrey McClendon. Aubrey was a driving force and visionary in the oil and gas industry, building Chesapeake Energy from its infancy in 1989 into to the second largest producer of natural gas in the United States. Aubrey’s vision, persistence and dedication were not limited to his business endeavors but extended to his community. We are lucky to have had Aubrey as a member of our oil and gas community and even luckier to have had him as a dear family friend. We will miss him.”
A passion for education drives much of Slawson’s philanthropic giving. A prime example is the family’s donation of $16 million for the Slawson Hall Earth, Energy and Environment Center. The center, expected to open in 2017, will itself meet LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards while providing space for research into geology, engineering and other fields.
