Chuck Watson, Chairman of the Board

Chuck Watson, along with Griff Jones, cofounded Twin Eagle Resource Management in 2010.  Watson is one of the pioneers of the energy industry.  During the initial era of energy marketing in the mid-80’s, following the wholesale deregulation of natural gas, Watson founded NGC Corp., the predecessor to Dynegy.  Watson served as chairman and chief executive officer of this Houston-based integrated energy provider until 2002.  He went on to co-found Eagle Energy Partners with Jones in 2003.  Eagle became a leading energy marketing company focused on the purchase, distribution and sale of natural gas, coal and electric power.  Eagle Energy was ultimately sold to Electricite de France (EDF) in 2008.

 

Watson is also founder of several other successful energy-related business ventures including Wincrest Ventures, CLW Investments and Thousand Hills Partners.  He also serves on the Board of Directors of Baker Hughes, Baylor College of Medicine, Mainstream Renewable Power, and Collegiate Zone. Watson is a senior energy advisor to Carlyle Investment Management Fund and serves on the advisory council for DocuSign.

 

A recognized pillar in the Houston sports community, Watson brought the Houston Aeros, an AHL professional hockey franchise, to Houston in 1998.  He was a minority owner of the Houston Texans NFL Franchise and served as Chairman of the 2004 Houston Super Bowl XXXVIII Host Committee.

 

Watson also champions his alma mater, Oklahoma State University, where he earned his B.S. in Business and Economics.  He served as governor, trustee and chairman of the OSU Foundation, was inducted into the OSU Alumni Hall of Fame in 1997, and in 2001, following his commencement address, received OSU’s highest honor of the Henry G. Bennett Award.

 

In 2001, Watson was inducted into the Texas Business Hall of Fame and was named “Master Entrepreneur” by Ernst & Young. In 2005, Mr. Watson was named Chairman of the Sigma Chi Foundation.
