Dr. Isaac Shkop, CEO
Dr Shkop holds a PhD in Business Administration from the University of Pittsburgh and was a faculty member in the business school at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He was also an associate member at the Chicago Board of Trade, trading financial futures for several years.
As one of the pioneers of the deregulated natural gas market in Northern Illinois, Dr. Shkop was involved in shaping many of the rules and regulations currently operative in Northern Illinois, and consequently adopted by other regions of the country.
Given the complexities and the esoteric nature of the energy market, Dr. Shkop established Prospect Resources as a consultancy company to serve medium and large energy users, educate them about the risks and opportunities in the highly volatile energy market, and to create a system to formulate and manage detailed energy procurement strategies.
Dr. Shkop has published in peer-review academic journals and has authored several popular books on interpersonal relationships and honest business dealing.
