Rich Tabaka | President

Rich Tabaka, Founder and President of Allied Resource Partners, has a hard-working entrepreneurial attitude in his DNA. His parents emigrated from Poland to America. Not only did they teach him how to reach for the “American Dream,” but when he was in high school they took out a loan on their house so that he could buy an undervalued property, renovate and resell it.

At the same, he worked as a caddy at a nearby golf course. And, through the Evans Scholar program, earned a full-ride scholarship to college where he attended the University of Colorado at Boulder. He completed in three years his degree in construction management and environmental design, which allowed him to extend his business into full-time custom home construction.

His business prospered, and Rich stayed ahead of the curve by redirecting it into bank foreclosure property management. He was well positioned to handle 2007’s “Great Recession” and sold his business in 2014 and then started a Paul Davis Restoration franchise that generates solid profits today.

The consummate entrepreneur, Rich looked for another tax-advantaged business in which to invest his profits and managerial skills. That’s when he discovered the excitement and opportunity in oil and gas. He “paid his dues” by learning and investing in several, and then developing, from his success in construction, a business model and approach that treat investors the way they should be. The result: Allied Resource Partners. Rich has built a management team and cadre of oil and gas talent that has years of experience in the geography and geology that Allied is targeting. Rich is married, lives in Denver, and balances working hard for his investors with a personal life that includes outdoor recreation and family activities.

Vendors & Consultants

Unlike many of our competitors, Allied has no redundant overhead in its organization structure, instead hiring leading petroleum geologists, engineers, and operators we know from doing successful business face-to-face.

Not only do they collectively bring decades of relevant experience, but also the latest innovative technology. We have built a cadre of subject matter experts that partner with us as each of our projects move through all the stages of acquiring, drilling, and completing.
