Mark Kelldorf and Arkoma Companies
Mark Kelldorf tells us a few tips on how to run a business successfully like he has been able to do with Arkoma Companies for many years.
- How do you balance running a successful business with family and other activities?
The key word is “BALANCE.” First, we must understand our role and priorities in life in order to achieve this balance. God first, your spouse, your family, your business… God takes care of the rest.
- Can you tell us about Arkoma’s DNA? What makes the company special?
Simply put, the company is founded and operates on Godly Biblical principles. The specialness is derived from these principles being implemented to hire high quality like-minded people.
- How did you get started in this business?
My junior year in college, while studying geology at UT Arlington, the Chairman of the Department asked if I wanted to work with him at a small gas company in Dallas, Regal Petroleum (Arkoma Gas). So for the opportunity to get paid less and work longer hours… I cut my hair and quit my grocery job.
