About Us

Optimus was founded in 2004 by two energy industry veterans, each with a background in trading and marketing and related technology. Shelley Wright and Heather Leverett believed solutions to problems are born by the optimization of people, process and technology. They were determined to leverage their expertise and networks to help entities work through these issues and improve performance. The initial plan took months to design, but hard work, precision and perseverance evolved into the reputable organization it is today.

 

Optimus has built a strong team, primarily based in Houston, but serving a global client base. Shelley and Heather chose to grow organically and responsibly by focusing on fostering relationships and delivering value. In 2015, another energy industry veteran, Michelle Bruce, joined Optimus as a Partner, bringing like-minded values and the same drive to define and achieve goals. When the three sat down to collectively perfect the organization’s mission and strategy, they realized the full scope of the company’s capabilities and determined that accentuating the Human Capital integrated solutions through business partnership is the fundamental key to the success. By leveraging each other’s energy industry experience, they built a business delivery model attentive to the vertical and horizontal interactions across the energy trading and marketing areas, with the determination of innovatively delivering human capital across the globe to resolve clients’ emerging needs.

 

The Human Capital in the energy commodities and marketing industry comprises the collective intangible assets embodied by individuals or teams optimized to achieve organizational goals. Optimus realizes that human capital is the greatest economic asset an organization can leverage for competitive edge and advantage in the marketplace. For this reason, Optimus prides itself in its history of fostering deep-seated partnerships with our clients and our candidates to understand the needs and opportunities, to deliver Human Capital solutions that drive prosperity.
