Our story details the life of a man who was determined to carve his path through the mountains of Roanoke, Virginia, after World War II, along with his brother-in-law, before being followed by his son, who was torn between the family business and the practice of law. It’s a tale of the outsider oil executive who changed the company’s trajectory forever, and the humble man who was raised in the business from an early age leading it into a robust and diverse future. Told through the voices of those who led the way, and those who will lead into the future, this is the great American story.
