Bill Davis is a principal and co-founder of Vaquero, where he is currently helping the team to build a 200 MMSCFD gas processing complex with more than 100 miles of high-pressure gathering pipeline in the southern Delaware Basin.
Bill co-founded Vaquero after retiring from a 13-year career with Crosstex Energy, serving 10 years as Chief Financial Officer and then three years as Chief Operating Officer. He joined Crosstex as its CFO in order to assist in leading the IPO of Crosstex Energy L.P., one of the early Master Limited Partnerships (MLP). Shortly after that IPO, he helped lead the IPO of the general partner of the MLP, Crosstex Energy, Inc., in what was the first IPO of a general partner of an MLP. Subsequently, in his role as COO, Bill coordinated the commercial, engineering, operations, and EH&S teams in the execution and subsequent operation of the Company’s assets. A principal focus was the execution of the Cajun Sibon expansion, a $700 million project that significantly expanded the company’s fractionation capacity in South Louisiana and connected that capacity to the liquids hub at Mont Bellevue.
Prior to joining Crosstex, Bill worked for Sunshine Mining Company for 18 years as Chief Accounting Officer and then as President/Chief Financial Officer/Chief Operating Officer. Before Sunshine Mining Company, he worked for Arthur Young and Company in Houston and San Antonio.
Bill graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting degree from Texas A&M University.
