Megan Bowers

Argent Financial Group, a leading independent fiduciary wealth management firm, today announced two promotions in its Mineral Management division. Megan Bowers, who is in the Fort Worth, Texas, office, was promoted to audit manager, and Grant Nelson, who is in Ruston, was promoted to audit associate. Both report to David Luke, president of Argent Mineral Management.

Bowers has been with Argent for six years and will lead the audit team and also be responsible for setting up client assets and researching title documents to verify mineral ownership across the 12 states in which Argent operates.

An Oklahoma native, Bowers earned her bachelor’s degree in computer information systems from Lubbock Christian University in Lubbock, Texas. In addition to her work with Argent, Bowers is a member of the American Association of Professional Landmen and the National Association of Division Order Analysts. She also received the Heritage Founders Award in 2019, where she was recognized for her professionalism and ethical integrity by Argent’s subsidiary, Heritage Trust, located in Oklahoma City.

“Megan has worn many hats and is incredibly versatile when it comes to all things oil and gas,” said Luke. “Her promotion is well deserved, and without question will benefit our mineral owner clients.”

Nelson was a part-time audit associate for Argent for the past year. He joined Argent after graduating from Louisiana Tech University in Ruston in 2019 with a bachelor’s degree in finance.

Originally from Lake Charles, Louisiana, Nelson now lives in Ruston where he also volunteers with the children’s ministry and youth group at Bridge Community Church.

“Grant did an excellent job as an intern, and we are happy he has agreed to stay on full time,” said Luke. “He will continue to be an asset to our audit team, a service that has achieved increasing success since he joined a year ago.”
