Tech’s fall graduation will begin at 2 p.m. in the Thomas Assembly Center.
Baldwin, a 1978 alumnus of Tech, began his career in the oil and gas business as a petroleum engineer with Arkla Exploration Company in Shreveport.  After Arkla, followed by brief stints with a consulting firm in Dallas and independent oil and gas companies in Shreveport and Houston, Baldwin returned to Arkla in 1986 and remained there until the company was sold at the end of 1992.  Shortly thereafter, Baldwin joined Brammer Engineering in Shreveport, and together with principals of Brammer and Keystone Exploration, formed Brammer-Keystone Energy in 1994.
Baldwin became president of Brammer-Keystone in 1997 and presided over the reorganization of the company into EnSight Resources and the eventual sale of the company in 2001. Baldwin, together with his long-time business associate, friend and fellow Tech graduate, Gregory K. Madden, then successfully built and sold EnSight Energy Partners and EnSight III Energy Partners, which occurred in 2005 and 2008, respectively.  Following the sale of EnSight III, Baldwin and Madden formed their current venture and remain active in oil and gas acquisitions and development in Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi.
Baldwin has been married to his college sweetheart, Jean, for 33 years, and they have two daughters: Mary Kathleen Baldwin of Ft. Worth and Molly Kristen Baldwin of New York City.
