M3 Management Team
Wes BuxtonCo-founder of Momentum3, Wes Buxton has been throwing around his IT game in Tulsa for years and is experienced at all levels. Before starting Momentum3, Wes co-founded and acted as CIO for an energy management company focused on helping customers organize and interpret their energy data. Prior to that, he was CIO at Seminole Energy Services, directing all aspects of information technology creating an IT organization to facilitate rapid growth and build an integrated, efficient software suite.
He took a $1 billion company operating on spreadsheets to a $4.5 billion company operating on state-of-the-art technology within four years. He has worked with reputable companies such as Deloitte and Touche, TV Guide, The Williams Companies, SolArc, and Anadarko, creating & presenting training programs, developing project methodologies, mentoring software engineers and building large-scale business systems. Currently, Wes is taking a shot at being a salesman, manager, and a developer at Momentum3. Even with all that, he still manages to take his wife to lunch most days (but don’t tell that to the other M3 wives.) Wes has a bachelor of science in management information systems from Oklahoma State University.
Jeff HinnenJeffrey Hinnen is the steady, man-behind-the-scenes kind of guy, always observant, conscientious and detail-oriented. A visionary IT leader with over 15 years of experience, recently in a CIO capacity, Jeff enjoys solving challenging or chronic issues, focusing on the big picture and endless possibilities. He has a reputation for defining enterprise technology strategies and solutions that reduce costs, improve efficiency, support organizational goals and maximize technology investments.
He also has a reputation for challenging anyone to a game of Golden Tee on the machine in our lobby. Many days you will find him at the office, earbuds in, jamming to music while cranking out code. But even if he’s extremely busy, Jeff will stop what he’s doing just to help someone out. Presently, Jeff is using his development expertise to deliver rock solid products for our clients while using his experience and knowledge to help customers navigate the complex world of IT Compliance.
He loves to travel probably more than anyone you know and has the passport stamps to prove it. When he’s not traveling, he spends his Friday nights at home, trying his hardest to “one-up” his wife with his mad coding skills (as his wife is also a developer.) Jeff has a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from Langston University.
Brent LewisWith a grin like a Cheshire cat and a gift for gab on both personal and business topics, Brent will walk around the M3 office, engaging in conversation that gets everyone livened up and energized. His honesty and strong worth ethic along with his lively, playful disposition have been constant throughout his 20 year career in Tulsa’s IT world. With a decade of experience in the energy industry, Brent has formed a broad range of skills, ranging from a strong technical background, forged from years of designing and architecting systems, to leading teams of application developers and project managers delivering technology solutions.
Prior to joining M3, Brent was Director of IT Applications at Continuum Energy Services, where he was responsible for leading application development and implementation for a portfolio of custom and off-the-shelf applications. He worked to align company goals and executive vision with the application roadmap, to ensure company expansion and growth were met.
A native Tulsan, Brent stays very involved in community activities, including membership in Leadership Tulsa and board membership for the Oklahoma branch of Operation Aware. Brent also stays busy spending time with his lovely wife and officiating at-home wrestling matches with their two boys. Brent received his education from the University of Tulsa, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science.
Greg PetersEvery time you see Greg Peters, he has a smile on his face, a sparkle in his eye, and he’s always delighted to hear an outlandish story or funny joke. When it comes to rock n' roll, give him Billy Joel. He is a big-picture and panoramic thinker with expertise in software and firmware release planning and management, among many other things.
While he didn’t "start the fire,” before founding Momentum3, he did start and manage a successful company called SolArc, a technology consulting firm focused on emerging technologies as well as an Energy Trade Management Software company. SolArc was one of Inc. Magazine’s 500 fastest growing private companies in the nation and one of Information Week’s 75 fastest-growing independent software vendors. In his 12 years at the consulting and software company, he directed its entire portfolio of projects and products, growing from just 3 employees to 160 at the time he sold to venture capital in 2003.
In 2010, he became the Director of Professional Services at Stonebridge where he directed business development, talent acquisition, project portfolio management, and risk management activities. Greg has Bachelor of Science degrees in Computer Science and Business Management from the University of Tulsa.
Business Development Team
Adrienne LunaMuch like a labrador retriever, Adrienne Luna is easily excitable and always friendly. A Kansas City native with an HR background and degree in business management and human relations, Adrienne spends a great deal of time meeting up with top talent and working with clients to help them reach their goals. A gymnastics and cheerleading coach (currently on hiatus), Adrienne is supportive and energetic, always looking to meet cool people.
While in her presence, she will never be offended if you yell, “Yo Adrienne!” In fact, she may encourage it. A natural networker, Adrienne has a continually expanding circle of personal contacts to provide support, insight and resources while she manages ongoing relationships that are based on trust, respect and understanding. The thing about Adrienne, she is your friend first and then talks business later. With her strong background and proven success introducing process improvements, recruitment programs and staff development initiatives, Momentum3 wanted her on the team. Her experience along with the keen ability to, “hang with the boys,” Adrienne has proven to be an asset to M3’s growing organization.
Clifford CravelloWhen Clifford Cravello walks into a room, immediately the energy level rises. Outgoing and charismatic, he carries the title, “Supreme Commander of Energy Products and Services.” Yes, that’s really his title. But before joining Momentum3, Clifford was a consultant, project manager, and trainer at SolArc/OpenLink for 18+ years and became one of the longest-serving customer-facing RightAngle experts. Over this time, he worked with nearly every RightAngle version, customer, commodity class, domain (front, mid and back office) and stream (up, mid, and down), successfully delivering projects across the globe. And he is uniquely qualified to say, “It isn’t rocket science” – because he actually was a rocket scientist in a previous career.
Clifford is also an expert communicator, comfortable and approachable at all levels, from the front-line to executives. It doesn’t matter if the project is small, short and sweet or if it’s big-time, complex and multi-million dollar, Cliff is high-energy and puts his heart and soul into his work and play. A family man, all-around nice guy, and dedicated community volunteer, he is always ready for a good time and an occasional lapse in judgement. But around here, we call that “fun.” Cliff has a BS in Mechanical Engineering from OSU and an MBA in Management from the UT at Arlington.
