Kelcy Warren is the CEO of the Fortune 500 Company Energy Transfer Partners, one of the largest natural gas and propane distribution companies in the United States. Forbes has also ranked Kelcy Warren as one of the wealthiest people in Texas and among America’s most influential people.

He attended Texas Tech University and later transferred to Texas Christian University, starting as a Pre-Med student but switching his major to Accounting. His dream was to become a CPA (Certified Public Accountant). However, he dropped out of college, much against his parent’s wishes.

Kelcy Warren worked many odd jobs before finally settling into one in the construction industry, which secured him financial stability and allowed him time to think about what he wanted to do with his life. Warren was also inspired by his mother, who, as an employee at Kelcy’s alma mater, Texas Christian University, would often regale him with stories of the school’s motto, “Learning to Live.” It spoke to his heart, and he decided he wanted a piece of the action.

Kelcy Warren started out working for several companies in the construction industry. However, after several years, working as an independent subcontractor endured but did not fulfill him. He knew that he had to build something of his own, something substantial.

In 2000 Kelcy founded Energy Transfer Equity (Sunoco Partners). Soon Warren was able to take his company public, and in 2006, Energy Transfer Partners acquired Sunoco Logistics for over $4.2 billion.

In 2010 Kelcy started having a dispute with one of the company’s general managers, whose contract he had awarded to his son Jayme. After this dispute was resolved, Kelcy decided to find another position that would allow him time to think about what he wanted to do with his life. After consulting with several friends who had made successful transitions from one career field to another, he decided that real estate would be the most efficient way for him and his company.
