A team born out of a crisis
The devastating Deepwater Horizon oil spill of 2010 brought Clint Wood, Mark Woeppel and Trip Bellard together. Clint was in charge of critical resources for the massive response operation, and he worked closely with Mark and Trip on developing the technology and infrastructure required to decontaminate and decommission the 15,000 vessels used for the clean-up – the largest fleet of vessels ever assembled. Together, they successfully delivered the project eight months early and $1.4 billion under budget.

The Trajectory Team
CLINT WOOD / CEO
As Chief Executive Officer of Trajectory Development Partners, Clint breaks through the status quo with his ability to lead innovative solutions; transforming supply chains, uncovering value, and building/scaling organizations to achieve stellar results. It is Clint’s leadership during BP’s Deepwater Horizon Spill, however, that best exemplifies his management expertise. It was also this crisis that connected the unique talents of Mark Woeppel, Trip Bellard and Clint together to clean up the gulf coast. Clint’s and his team ensured the growth of supply chain capacities for BP by up to 10,000% in a matter of weeks — addressing worldwide shortages in critical resources. He also drove supply chain integrations to remediate capital assets, addressing 400 simultaneous capital development projects to mitigate risk and help resuscitate the company.
Even more recently, Clint led the supply chain digital transformation program for the most profitable company in the world. In the first year, Clint’s team more than doubled technology value contribution to nearly $200 million annual savings. For Clint, it is this same opportunity for value extraction that digitally driven disruption can bring the Commercial Real Estate industry.
