The point I was making is that their CFO, who is unrelated to the Rice family / mgmt., is a late-20s gent with a PE background (NGP). ...

Not really. While RICE / PE do not have the same scale / scope as BKW, they are still multi-billion dollar public companies (RICE is a ~$3.5 Bn mkt cap, while BKW is ~$9.4 Bn). ...

I actually do not find this that shocking at all. See it fairly often in the IB > PE > B-school route. Hell, just look at Parsley Energy and Rice Energy for examples in the E&P space. ...

| O-T Lounge|| re: Why is Julius Caesar looked upon so fondly by history? - Athanatos on 7/19/14 at 8:43 pm|
Augustus was the adopted son of Caesar. He was the one who basically created a hereditary line of rulers, and it was based on the adoption of the Caesar name. He also took steps to have Caesar deified so that he was known as the son of a God. Future rulers took the name of Caesar as a source of divi...

The titles that are a derivation of Caesar are likely less connected to Julius Caesar than to Caesar Augustus. Octavian made Caesar a title synonymous with Emperor for centuries, and later empires would seek legitimacy from that, as has been mentioned.

Cease signed for a monstrous $1.5 million. Makes sense, and can't begrudge his choice when being offered first round money.
