Tom’s unique Explorer story:
Jensen and Explorer Pipeline have, in a sense, grown up together. Tom was barely out of his teens when he joined the company, then just 6 years old itself. Doing his personal best—even when the task at hand was raking rock or painting pipe—and staying focused on promotion are two things Tom counts as keys to his success at the company.
