He then became an associate pastor to oversee several areas of the church. These areas included counseling, small groups, and various teaching duties. He traveled overseas on multiple trips, implementing goal-oriented training, counseling and management programs for church congregations in both Nigeria and Ukraine. 

Nadaskay parlayed his successful pastor-related experiences into a management consulting role in the private sector, where he specialized in optimizing corporate strategic planning, sales, networking, budgeting and event planning. In his most recent career experience prior to joining Valor, he served as both an educator and coach in both the Crowley, Rutherford & Maury County (TN) School Districts.

The company also offers outsourcing services for oil and gas operators, partnering with companies to offer bookkeeping, owner relations, and other back-office operations.

But the foundation and cornerstone of Valor’s mineral management services is, a proprietary mineral management platform designed to optimize and track oil and gas assets. Thanks to Valor’s business solutions and the company’s proficiency in an array of specialty asset management services, the company now manages a combined 10.2 million gross acres and 560,000 net royalty acres of mineral and property rights on behalf of more than 100,000 interests across 32 U.S. states. Valor is headquartered in Fort Worth and maintains a satellite office in Midland, Texas.

“I’m proud to be joining a thriving organization like Valor,” stated Nadaskay. “This is a company that has grown exponentially over the past couple of years, doubling in both staff and revenue. I believe now is the perfect time for the company to institute this new chief people officer role, to manage and maintain this momentum they’ve created.”
