Leaving Wall Street behind, Joshua Lockwood enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, requesting assignment with the infantry in Camp Pendleton, California. After successfully completing four years of honorable service, including service in Operation Iraqi Freedom, as well as participating in counter-terrorism operations throughout the globe, Josh resigned from the military to complete his formal education in finance and economics. After enjoying various professional and educational successes, in 2011, Josh Lockwood founded what would eventually become Lockwood Equity Group. Drawing on nearly a decade of industry experience, from investment banking to private asset management, Josh set out to create a boutique investment firm operating in the business areas of private equity, real assets, market strategies, and corporate advisory. Today, Lockwood Equity Group is dedicated to identifying opportunities that expand the scope of our business, while also generating significant value through consistent risk-adjusted returns and organic growth. In 2013, after successfully acquiring a majority stake in Deal Energy Resources, a Colorado-based, non-operating E&P company, Josh is proud to carry his experience forward into America's rapidly growing domestic energy market. Deal Energy Resources is proud to support America's economy by safely, economically, and intelligently developing some of our most precious natural resources, while investing in alternative energy projects to fuel the growth of tomorrow. Deal Energy Resources can also help assist in the acquisition, and divestiture of both producing and non-producing assets throughout the midcontinent region of North America.
