GHK is a private investment firm that has its roots in natural gas exploration. Founded in 1959, GHK was named for its three founders: Laurence Glover, Robert A. Hefner III and David O’D. Kennedy. Hefner initiated the partnership, led the growth of the organization, and today is sole owner. He continues as the Chief Executive Officer of the company.

The company has been at the forefront of science and exploration for more than 50 years. Today, the GHK group of companies invests in a broad range of companies and funds that continue Hefner’s lifework of unbounded thinking.
