“We are excited about the future of Canes as we’ve added Mike and Dan to our team and continue to grow in a fast-paced, customer-centric environment,” said Scott Brown, Canes Midstream Chief Executive Officer. “Both Dan and Mike have a long and proven history of success in the energy industry. They not only bring valuable experience and expertise in their disciplines, they embody the values, work ethic, and outside-the-box thinking skills that we hold dear at Canes.”

Mike Hicks, Chief Operating Officer

Hicks brings nearly 35 years of natural gas gathering and processing experience to Canes. Most recently, Hicks served as President of Superior Pipeline Company, where he was responsible for the performance of natural gas gathering and processing facilities in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Prior to Superior Pipeline Company, Mike held various positions at Aka Energy Group including Executive Vice President of Operations, and President of Frontier Field Services and Lumen Midstream Services, which were all part of the Southern Ute Growth Fund. Hicks has also served as the Director of Operations for Frontier Energy, a private equity-based midstream company, prior to its acquisition by Aka. Hicks earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Tulsa.

Dan Westcott, Chief Financial Officer

Westcott brings nearly 20 years of energy experience to Canes, including eight years of executive experience at Legacy Reserves, a Midland, Texas-headquartered producer, where he first served as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, then President, and finally as Chief Executive Officer. While managing Legacy as a publicly traded master limited partnership, Westcott helped raise more than $2 billion of capital to fund Legacy’s strategic acquisitions and organic growth through debt, preferred and common equity, as well as DrillCo capital. Prior to Legacy, Westcott worked at GSO Capital Partners within The Blackstone Group for six years, investing in a broad range of debt and equity capital across the wide-ranging energy space in both the public and private markets. Westcott holds a Bachelor of Arts degree and Master of Science degree from Stanford University where he was an All-American swimmer.
