New ideas and innovative thinking have been at the foundation of Devon’s business strategy since John Nichols and his son, Larry, co-founded the company in 1971.
They recognized then that hard work, perseverance and creativity would be the difference between success and failure in a competitive industry awash in small independent oil and natural gas producers.
