Newman will be responsible for leading the technical efforts on all Exploration & Production assignments, including property acquisition & divestiture (A&D) advisory, corporate M&A, strategic alternatives reviews, and public and private capital raises.

Newman joins Simmons from Griffis & Associates LLC, where he worked since 2007. At Griffis, Newman led the technical evaluations on approximately $3 billion of closed A&D transactions.

Prior to joining Griffis, he spent seven years with Hess Corp. in a variety of engineering roles and, most recently, worked out of its London office as manager, Global Production Planning.

He began his career as an operations engineer with ExxonMobil and received his undergraduate degree in petroleum engineering from Texas A&M University.
