Meet some of the folks who keep our system growing and developing, continually striving to make iLandMan the most effective and efficient tool for landman to use every day.
For over thirty years, Tim Supple has seen landmen as the entrepreneurial spirit of the oil and gas industry.
An oil and gas landman from 1978 thru 2000, a small E&P operator from 1985 to 1997, and a real estate investor since 1986. He knows what an E&P firm needs and wants from the land department, and he knows how to champion the brokers who are willing to accept a better way. For two decades Mr. Supple observed (and participated) in the unmanageable field of land management as a large brokerage he formed in 1986. At different points in time assisting E&P’s such as Chevron, Exxon, and Apache to obtain their land acquisitions on millions of acreage throughout North America, and managing large brokerage crews.
In 2001, development of iLandMan began with partner Richard Hines. The product was launched in 2005 as the executives began serving a client base. Within the last year iLandMan has doubled the number of people using the product.
Mr. Supple graduated from LSU with a Bachelors of Science in History in 1976, but has a personal goal of graduating more land professionals into a new era of land management that creates efficiencies the oil and gas industry has never seen from the land acquisition phase.

If there has ever been an example of a person going from student of the business to leader of the land industry Richard Hines would be a sterling one. His commitment to the land industry and his community spans 3 decades.
Longtime business partner to Tim Supple and Vice President of American Data Corporation, Mr. Hines has been instrumental in bringing about the convergence of all the disparate activities landmen have historically been engaged with as they conduct the land acquisition role to E&P firms. His experiential, hands on background combined with his appetite for leveraging better ways to get things done is key to the intuitive features of iLandMan. Prior to forming iLandMan, for over 20 years he worked side by side with Mr. Supple managing operations.
Mr. Hines has served as Third Vice President of the American Association of Professional Landman (AAPL), and currently serves on the Certification Committee and the Website/IT Committee. He was the recipient of the 2008 AAPL Best Director’s Communication Award.
He has effectively sponsored and stewarded legislation for the land industry at the State level to foster improved professional standards and working conditions for landmen. Equally active in his community he has provided numerous solutions as a Board member for organizations such as Boys and Girls Clubs of America, American Red Cross, Saint Jude and United Way.
Mr. Hines graduated from U.S.L. in 1984 with a Petroleum Land Management degree and has made a genuine impact in the Southern Louisiana region. His legacy is likely to be that of an ambassador to the E&P industry who improved the economics and workflow of land acquisition like no one has ever seen.
