Jeff Kapustka was born and raised in Lakewood, Colorado where his father worked for Texaco. His Father was transferred several times during his career with Texaco and his family ended up being transferred to Houston in 1982. Upon graduating from Tomball High School in 1985, Jeff went to the University of Nebraska, Lincoln and later transferred to a small Liberal Arts College/Seminary in St. Meinrad, Indiana and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English and Minor in Philosophy in 1990.
Armed with a liberal arts degree, he came back to Houston in what was a pretty depressed economy in the early 90’s following the big oil crash of the 80’s and started working as the Manager of a small recruiting company, specializing in placing contract IT professionals. He did that for about a year when he was recruited by a small boutique retained executive search firm in Houston where both partners took him under their wings and taught him the in’s-and-outs of the retained search business.
Since he started in this industry in 1990, Jeff has worked with a number of very successful retained search firms and in 2015, started SNRG Corporation to focus on his client base with a more personal approach and unique offering of his services in this very competitive environment.
Working with various firms with different industry focuses has been the springboard to what has led Jeff to a successful career of almost 31 years in the retained search business. He has worked with a broad range of clients including: Renewable Energy Upstream Oil and Gas, Midstream, LNG, Downstream, Oilfield Services, Engineering and Construction, Specialty Manufacturing and Aerospace, Maritime, Information Technology and Environmental Engineering.
SNRG Corporation’s name culminated from an extensive thought effort and Jeff landed on the best-defined word that talks about bringing the right people/places and things together for the common good which is “SYNERGY” and in today’s world of acronyms, SNRG Corporation for short.
Long-term friendships have been cultivated by almost 3 decades of recruiting professionals in these industry segments. Jeff’s approach is always straightforward, honest, and targeted. Round pegs into round holes is what he is after when tackling a strategic recruiting project. If a client is having difficulty finding a certain person and/or skill set, he believes no position is necessarily to big or to small not to have a discussion about.
At the end of the day, Jeff takes sincere pride in seeing his clients be successful. He believes in a pay-it-forward mindset that when you do the right thing, it will come back to you in a positive way. Jeff likes to say that he becomes an Ambassador in the industry for his clients.
