Richard King IV

General Manager

Before earning his B.A. in Petroleum Land Management from the University of Texas at Austin in 1983, Richard worked summers as a roughneck on drilling rigs in South Texas. He’s been involved in nearly every aspect of the oil and gas leasing business as a Texas landman, operator, consultant, minerals owner, minerals manager and oil and gas leasing developer. He’s adept in the complete process of exploration and production—and speaks the language of the drilling rig floor and executive board room. Richard consolidated forty members of his extended family and their trust officers from five banks—and transformed 14,000 acres of dormant oil and gas property into oil & gas royalty income. At R. King & Co. he serves that same passion for other clients: Creating financial security for generations to come.
