Mr. Winters is the Founder and President of Southlake Resources Group. Mr. Winters is an accomplished oil and gas businessman with considerable experience matching high quality operators and sophisticated investors. Since 2004 Cody has been known for creating unique business opportunities that strategically manage risk and provide economic benefits for both operator and investor.

Prior to launching his oil and gas career Mr. Winters worked in Corporate Finance for Agilent Technologies where he was responsible for the financial analysis of capital projects and strategic planning reporting to the CFO.
