Back Roads Energy adds aerial services, names Hruska Director of Aerial Services

Back Roads Energy is pleased to announce the hiring of Dan Hruska, CPL, who will serve as the Director of Aerial Services at Back Roads Energy.

Hruska is an FAA Certified UAV Pilot with flying experience in varied landscapes, habitats and weather conditions. His UAV experience also spans a number of industries, creating a diversified flying portfolio, and ultimately a multifaceted knowledge base.

Hruska’s hiring will afford Back Roads the ability to add aerial services to its existing land services, project management and small construction offerings.

“Back Roads Energy is continuously evaluating our business offerings in order to meet the ever-evolving demand for services. We are always evaluating potential opportunities that can separate us as a company and also align with our history of providing contract land services,” said Perry Cunningham, Back Roads Energy Partner. 

Hruska comes to Back Roads Energy with 15 years of experience in Oil & Gas, where he served as a contract landman, in-house landman, crew chief and project manager. 

Hruska is an active member of the American Association of Professional Landmen (AAPL) and the Northern Appalachian Landman’s Association (NALA).

In addition to his land experience, Hruska is the co-owner of HP Outdoors, the number one Waterfowl Podcast in the world.

“As we began our planning and preparation, Dan Hruska, because of our familiarity with him, became the natural choice to develop and lead this segment of our business,” Cunningham said. “I know that Dan will elevate our new program, as his vision is aligned with ours. We are excited to see where Dan can take things.”

Specifically, Hruska will lead Back Roads Energy’s efforts in these areas: 

  • Direct addition and expansion of aerial services
  • Educate current and prospective clients on aerial capabilities
  • Focus on providing cost effective solutions for clients 
  • The development of strategic relationships
  • Meeting and exceeding client needs and expectations
  • The commitment to a client-centered, professional experience 
  • The focus on long-term company goals
