A top administrator with a career that spans 15 years, Karl Brensike has led significant business ventures in the high technology and energy production sectors. Shortly after graduating from the University of Southern California (USC) with a bachelor of science in entrepreneurship, he established an Internet start-up with three other recent USC graduates. Originally dubbed Mongoose Solutions, the company ultimately became known as netHESIVE, Inc. As netHESIVE’s chief executive officer, Karl Brensike helped develop and market an innovative online toolbar and engine that was able to connect like-minded people according to their Internet activities. The company was eventually acquired by Channel Intelligence, which itself was purchased by Google in 2013.
In 2013, Karl Brensike received $100 million in private equity commitments to co-found Haymaker Minerals & Royalties, LLC with Doug Collins and Vasilis Mouratoff. Mr. Brensike currently serves as CEO of Haymaker, and oversees the acquisitions of minerals and royalties across the United States.
