using human capital to solve complex problems
Leading the way in creative solutions
In this new decade, the Black Gold Group is uniquely situated to provide Collaboration, Capital, Creativity, and Connections.
Our portfolio company partners over the past three decades and the Black Gold Advisory Partners have collectively been involved in over fifty start-ups over the last 40-plus years. They have also been involved in debt and equity capitalizations, dozens of acquisitions and dispositions, LBO & IPO transactions, and over 40 workouts and debt restructures. All of these together have totaled well over $1B of capital transactions. Over 90 percent of these transactions have been achieved by the Advisory and Portfolio Partners as PRINCIPALS and OWNERS, not as advisors or consultants.

A Global Network of Distinguished Business Advisors
John Maxwell, one of the great inspirational authors of our time, is quoted as saying “Leadership is Influence”. The 50/50 Leadership Collaborative, which makes up the majority of the Black Gold Advisory Partner panel, was founded by Kevin Jordan and a few friends to capitalize on the experiences, skills, and networks of successful people, and to take appropriate advantage of the Influence of trusted friends. This is a classic example of ‘friends’ sharing friends’.
The group is comprised of 50+ men and women that are largely from the South and Southwestern parts of the US, with most of them from Oklahoma and Texas, with a scattering from other parts of the US and six different countries.
EVERY ONE of these folks have distinguished themselves in business or a related profession, such as legal, accounting, politics, engineering, or higher education. We have entrepreneurs, CEO’s of public and private companies, retired executives, attorneys, CPA’s, lending executives, venture capitalists, politicians, scientists, inventors, engineers and other professionals, as well as investors. These men and women are from every kind of conceivable business, numerous different industries, domestic and international experience, and represent a collective ‘GNP’ that would rival a small nation.
All of these individuals have started, grown, or operated companies or businesses. Many are wildly successful, and most all of them have swung for the fence enough in their careers that they have experienced setbacks, significant challenges, or failures of various degrees at one time or another; that is part of what brings wisdom, experience, and relevance for your business needs.
ALL of the folks that have been invited to be a part of this Collaborative share a common trait: each of them have experienced a tremendous amount of life and business experience that they are motivated to share for various reasons. While a few of the Advisors are ‘retired’, most are actively engaged in running businesses; while these men and women don’t typically have a lot of time, we have found that in many instances they can make an incredible impact with very little time involvement.
