Barron Sawyer


👨‍💻  I am a market developer and energy-industry media entrepreneur.

💡  I founded the advisory firm Montlhéry and the electrochemistry-focused consultancy VoltChemI find innovative process equipment manufacturers and develop markets for them in heavy industries and energy operations worldwide.

💼  With over a decade of experience in the energy and water industries, I have been fortunate to work with industry leaders and develop a wide professional network. I began my career in the industrial division of Texas’ largest general contractor, based in their Houston Ship Channel office, located in the most densely industrialized area in America. From 2015 to 2020, I held several positions at De Nora, a leading provider of equipment, systems, disinfection, and filtration solutions for water and wastewater treatment, as well as a leader in hydrogen technologies.

🌎  Our international reach extends through partners located in Mexico City, Mexico; São Paulo, Brazil; Cairo, Egypt; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Marseille, France; Perth, Australia; Kingston, Jamaica; Georgetown, Guyana; Barbados; U.S. Virgin Islands.

🏛  I earned a J.D. from the University of Oregon School of Law and B.A., with honors from the University of California Los Angeles.  I'm a legacy graduate of Midland School.  


🎙️ I'm the creator of live global industry spaces that bring together thought leaders to exchange insights on innovations and strategies in the energy and resource sectors.  I created EnergyPolls.org to engage the industry on vital topics & trends.  Upon graduating UCLA, I founded what has become the largest unofficial alumni business network.


⚖️   Our family's ranch, sometimes compared to a real-world "Yellowstone," is currently engaged in a just battle with the state of California.  In 2024, it achieved shoreline preserve status following years of dedicated conservation efforts by our community.


🖤  I support various organizations, including  Valley Sailing, Becket,  Engineers Without Borders - SBV Chapter,  Bach Society Houston, Sherlock Holmes Society of Houston, Cascade Energy & Resource Professionals (Bend, Oregon)....


👨‍👩‍👧‍👦  When I'm not running Montlhéry I'm a Business Dad raising our 4 children with Mrs. Sawyer and enjoying the outdoors in the Pacific Northwest.
