Wilber "has been an energy entrepreneur for over three decades. He pioneered the unregulated marketing and trading of crude oil and petroleum products, natural gas, and electricity as Chairman and CEO of Citizens Corporation, an unaffiliated, independent energy company. Building on that success, he expanded into oil exploration and energy conservation. He created Citizens Lehman Power, a joint venture between Lehman Brothers and Citizens that was the nation’s first electricity trading and asset acquisition/restructuring company, and then successfully sold it to The Energy Group PLC. Prior to co-founding RockPort, Wilber was Non-Executive Chairman of Citizens Power and a member of the Executive Committee of Peabody Energy, and was instrumental in the LBO of Peabody and Citizens from The Energy Group in 1998. Wilber is a graduate of Colorado College with a BA in History." [1]
