T. Boone Pickens

Chairman and CEO, BP Capital

Boone Pickens believes that the U.S. needs a sound energy policy to overcome its biggest threats. As the Founder and Chairman of BP Capital, Pickens is one of the nation's most successful businessmen, first building one of the nation's largest independent oil companies, Mesa Petroleum, and later reinventing himself in his 70s as one of the most successful investment fund operators with BP Capital. Drawing from these experiences, Boone launched the Pickens Plan in 2008, a grass-roots campaign aimed at reducing this country's crippling addiction to OPEC oil.

Boone is the author of The First Billion is the Hardest, which details what this country can do to win back its energy independence.
