A well-established business leader and attorney based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Duke Ligon served Devon Energy Corporation as general counsel and senior vice president for 10 years. Recently, Duke Ligon accepted a position with Peter J. Solomon Company (PJSC) as senior advisor.
As reported in Westminster College News, Mr. Ligon already had a longstanding affiliation with PJSC as advisor to its energy practice, which is based in Houston.
Speaking as an alumnus of Westminster College, Mr. Ligon said that his inspiration for taking on a career spanning banking, law, and oil came primarily from Dr. William Parrish, a professor who sparked within him a “quest for learning” that focused on substantive issues and enabled him to mature and grow as an individual.
The CEO of Peter J. Solomon Company, Marc S. Cooper, described Mr. Ligon’s acceptance of the senior advisory role as exciting, given his experience and stature in the oil industry as well as his mentorship to members of the energy group.
