Russ: The is the PKF Texas Entrepreneur’s Playbook. I’m Russ Capper, this week’s guest host and I’m here with Kirsten Strieck, a shareholder and Director of Operations & Client Services at Joint Venture Strategic Advisors. Welcome to the Playbook, Kirsten.
Kirsten: Thank you for having me.
Russ: You bet. So, you talk about this company a lot as JVSA, right?
Kirsten: That’s right.
Russ: Ok, tell us about JVSA.
Kirsten: JVSA is a joint venture consulting firm that provides joint venture services as well as joint venture audit services, primarily to the oil and gas industry.
Russ: Ok. Give me an example of what a good, ideal client would look like.
Kirsten: Well, today we met with an investment firm that’s looking to invest in oil and gas, and return on their investments, and so that’s one type of client.
Russ: Ok, so wait, sometimes you’re just talking about, not that it’s simple at all, but an investor and an oil and gas company, they’re coming together forming a joint venture.
Kirsten: Absolutely. But, also major oil and gas companies, small oil and gas companies, they also have joint ventures with other partners in the oil industry.
Russ: It must be an area that requires a special expertise, would you agree with that?
Kirsten: Yes. We have many staff members and contractors that have various years of experience, many in the 30 plus years in industry, and they are specialists in their areas.
Russ: How long have you been in the area?
Kirsten: I’ve been in oil and gas for over 11 years, specifically with JVSA, but over 25 years in the client services industry.
Russ: Ok, well thanks a lot, Kirsten, for sharing your perspective with us today.
Kirsten: Thank you.
