Manager of Business Development and Commercial Strategy, Criterion Energy Partners
Nick Cestari lives in Houston, TX with his wife Andrea and dog Otis. Nick grew up in Round Rock, TX, and has a younger brother and sister. Nick attended Baylor for his Bachelor’s degree in Geology and then ventured off to the University of Kansas to get a Masters in Geology. Following the completion of his Master’s degree, Nick began working for Occidental Petroleum and worked there for almost 10 years working conventional carbonates and EOR – waterfloods and CO2 floods. As a geologist, he has a passion for the outdoors and the subsurface but also believes in constantly learning and taking on new challenges. Naturally Geothermal caught the attention of a Geologist, but Nick truly believes that it has the potential to change the energy economy as we know it. CORE Knowledge was birthed out of a desire to be a catalyst for change and helping to educate the general population on the benefits of Geothermal. Nick recently joined Criterion Energy Partners in a Business Development and Commercial Strategy role to help commercialize Geothermal in Texas and beyond.
