In the Office: PLM Recognizes Cori Willett as March Landman of the Month

Cori joined PLM in 2011 and has been an integral part of the team essentially since her start. Cori bought experience gained while writing Title Opinions for a Fort Worth law firm and was able to jump onto special projects, literally, on day #1. Having spent much of her early years at Purple working high maintenance and often very complex West Texas title projects, she eventually became our team’s go-to West Texas title manager. Her knack for complex title combined with her ability and drive to network within the industry has allowed Cori to carry PLM teams far; she has been a vital piece of the equation in working to build upon and diversify PLM’s customer base in Fort Worth and Midland.

In 2017 she was responsible for bringing in multiple new West Texas customers to PLM who have brought sustainable and long-term work to dozens of landmen who are still working for these customers today. Cori is well known and well regarded at industry events due to her constant willingness to represent PLM teams at happenings across the region and she is a much-appreciated, top tier, hard-working member of the family.

In her free time, Cori enjoys being outdoors with her dog Jax (named after Adrian Macias’s dog, Jax), eating top-tier chips at the best local patios and partaking in karaoke with her friends. Please join us in congratulating Cori Willett as being named PLM’s March Landman of the Month!

 

In the Office: PLM Recognizes Andrew Arnot as February Landman of the Month

Andrew has been a key member of the Permian team in Fort Worth for several months.  Most recently he helped execute a large scale due diligence project that required a great deal of organization and attention to detail.  Andrew has quickly excelled and established himself as a leader and asset on the Permian team.  He takes the initiative to teach others and finds ways in which to better streamline processes throughout the duration of a project.  From the simplest task to the most complicated, Andrew always strives for excellence and takes pride in his work product.  He is always the first to volunteer when there is an urgent need even if it is over a weekend or holiday.

Megan Slabach Named 2017 Don Thoms Landman of the Year

PLM is pleased to announce that Megan Slabach is the 2017 Don Thoms Landman of the Year.  Megan has been an anchor in the Canton office for nearly five years. She started as a member of Land Administration where she helped build some of PLM’s most essential standard operating procedures. Mrs. Slabach is currently PLM’s Sr. Solutions Architect and is responsible for overseeing PLM and Overdrive’s back-end project management infrastructure, reporting, and land metrics.

Megan has also excelled at project work and helped design and construct a reporting process on a large-scale leasing project that would later form the basis for Overdrive (PLM’s Land Management Platform that has since been designed on the Esri ArcGIS Platform). Megan spent several months in PLM’s remote field office in Mississippi where she helped develop a system for organizing entire courthouse title plants within Overdrive.

“To say Megan is a ‘life-saver’ is an understatement,” said Adrian Macias, PLM Vice President of Land. “PLM’s growth would not have been possible without her ability to streamline processes, manage data, and work with customers on unique problems that run outside of the ordinary title and leasing process.”

This year, Megan has helped one of the largest oil and gas families in the US (with assets in 22 different states) re-organize a billion dollar asset base and capture properties that weren’t properly in pay or needed corrective action. “Megan is an incredibly humble professional who is quietly working behind the scenes to keep the ship on course. She is my right hand woman and always brings a different and necessary perspective to the projects we work on together. I am proud to call her a colleague and am excited to see what 2018 has in store for her career at PLM,” said Nathan McIntyre, VP of Technical Operations.

Mrs. Slabach is repeatedly given tight deadline projects from company management because of her absolute attention to detail, work ethic, and ability to leverage technology to create efficiencies in operations. PLM is honored to have her on staff and pleased to congratulate her as the 2018 Don Thoms Landman of the Year.  Congratulations, Megan!

In the Office: PLM Recognizes Jen Amendola as December Landman of the Month

Jen has been part of the Purple team for more than 5 years. Jen loves her cat, Harvey, Batman, and she has a particular fondness of maps. Jen is an avid exercise enthusiast and participates in the occasional CrossFit competition. Outside of the office Jen is quite the cook. A select few have had the opportunity to try some of Jen’s homemade pasta sauce and meatballs (Stark County’s “Best in Show” at the 96’ Italy’s Great Festival) or her famous raspberry oatmeal bars which are seasonally available for special occasions.

Jen is famous in that Nathan McIntyre personally hired her away from her previous employer as he knew she would be key in building a GIS department. She has gone on to prove herself as an amazing asset to not only the company, but the GIS department as a whole. Since her hire, Jen has maintained a heavy client load including some of PLM’s largest eastern clients; she has been dubbed “Mrs. ODNR” for her tireless efforts in the realm of all things Ohio Oil and Gas.

Jen demonstrates a level of professionalism, leadership, and dedication to her position that sets the bar high for other analysts in the department. Her approach to getting things done the way they should be is unbeatable. Much of the company’s success can be accredited in some part to her skill, hard work, and incredible efficiency. We appreciate everything that Jen has done both openly and behind the scenes to keep Purple GIS on the leading edge. Congratulations, Jen!
