The Fort Worth-based land services company was named one of the fastest-growing private companies in America for the third year in a row.

FORT WORTH, Texas (November 1, 2017)Purple Land Management (PLM), a full-service land management firm, has been recognized as one of the 2017 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America by Inc. 5000. They have been honored with this award two other times, making this the third in a row. The Inc. 5000 highlights privately held companies across the country that demonstrate the highest revenue growth over a three-year period.

“We can’t thank our customers and employees enough for making it possible for us to once again receive this honor,” said Jesse Hejny, president of PLM. “We made it on the list because of hundreds of dedicated employees and loyal customers who helped us power through one of the roughest years in recent memory in oilfield services.”

Established in 1982, the Inc. 5000 is a prestigious list of the nation’s most successful private companies, and it has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success. For more information on the Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Companies in America, please visit https://www.inc.com/inc5000/list.

PLM Named Historic Preservation Project Award Winner

By: Cori Willett

On September 27, 2017 Purple Land Management (“PLM”) was honored to receive the Preservation Project Award from Historic Fort Worth, Inc. for the restoration of the Winfield Garage into what is now named Winfield Place.  Winfield Place now serves as PLM’s corporate headquarters.  The building was originally constructed in 1920 as a parking garage for 300 cars and today is a fully updated office space for over 150 employees and contractors.

Accepting the award on PLM’s behalf was Director of Land Operations, Cori Willett.  Also in attendance from PLM were Kristen Leighton, Matthew Cross, and John Dobbs.  The event recognized PLM along with several others in the community for their excellence in preservation projects, rehabilitation of residential properties, great stewardship of historic places and significant achievement in the restoration of historic resources.

The awards ceremony was also paired with the Cantey Lecture series and featured Beth Wiedower, Director of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Houston Field Office.  Ms. Wiedower spoke on preservation and the public process and encouraged listeners to take action in their communities.  PLM’s own Matthew Cross best summed up the evening by quoting Jane Jacobs who said, “Old ideas can sometimes use new buildings.  New ideas must use old buildings.”

PLM to Attend Summer NAPE

Purple Land Management attended the Summer NAPE expo August 16-17, 2017.  We served as the popcorn sponsor and made sure attendees kept their hunger at bay throughout the day. Nathan McIntyre, Vice President of Land and Technical Operations, had the opportunity to speak at the NAPE Theater. He gave an amazing presentation about Overdrive™ powered by Esri®. His speech was streamed live on Facebook and Instagram and drew traffic to the booth for questions and demonstrations of Overdrive™.

We hosted a happy hour at Pete’s Dueling Piano Bar and had more than 50 people in attendance which represented a large variety of companies that PLM does work for across the nation.  The dueling pianists took song requests from the audience and had everyone singing along, while definitely off key, to popular tunes for hours. A new rendition of the YMCA was performed on stage by Arthur Medina, Nathan McIntyre, David Brooks, Justin Mayhall and John Soltis.  While their dance moves were entertaining, we think they should stick to their day job. Attendees also were able to enjoy a photo booth at the happy hour.

Purple offices were represented by Jesse Hejny, Bryan Cortney, Adrian Macias, Nathan McIntyre, Ryan Barnhart, Arthur Medina, Temple Anderson, Cori Willett, Aaron McCamant, David Brooks, Taylor Stallons, Sutton Steele and Whitney Sellers.  Summer NAPE was very a successful event for the company and the attendees were able to catch up with many old friends and customers.

We want to extend our thanks to those who attended Summer NAPE and helped make it a great success!  We look forward to seeing everyone again at NAPE Summit in February.
