From the time of SDS Petroleum Consultants just being a dream of Scotts, René has been there working side-by-side her husband. If you stopped by SDS in its early days you would have seen René covering every job from answering the phone to taking out the trash. In those days her essential function was organizing and maintaining the SDS office. As business started picking up and SDS began expanding rapidly, René's role changed. She was responsible for hiring an office staff that could process the growing amount work accurately and efficiently. Together, Scott and René designed and wrote the policies and procedures that have carried SDS to being one of the premier consulting firms in the nation. “SDS Petroleum Consultants would not be what it is today without her guidance and insight” Scott says. Today René oversees SDS’ book keeping and financial team. From monitoring accounts payable and receivable, down to managing the day-to-day administrative functions of the office. René attended and graduated from Tyler Jr. College, earning an associates in business administration. René grew up in Troup, TX where she and Scott maintain a home to this day.
