Her job title directly references one of Valor’s four core values, the company said.
“We’re very pleased to welcome Liz Johnston as our new director of relentless innovation,” Valor Chief of Staff Hanna Howard said in a statement. “As the job title suggests, Johnston will play an invaluable role in assessing and improving many of Valor’s standard operating procedures, as well as strengthening Valor’s workforce training programs.

The company said that in her new role, Johnston will improve Valor’s processes and standard operating procedures, while playing a key role in developing internal and external training programs for employees. Also, Johnston plans to support product development, including several innovative tech-based features designed to further enhance the company’s mineral.tech software platform.
Aiming to continue ‘amazing growth’
Johnston is a Fort Worth native who has enjoyed a successful career in a wide variety of diverse pursuits, the company said.
Most recently, she spent nearly six years as the executive marketing director for Resource Exploration, a software development company specializing in priority-based budgeting resources.
She has held board-level positions with the nonprofit Mother’s Milk Bank, as well as the Team Texas Rock Climbing Club.
Founded in 2018, Valor has become one of the Southwest’s leading mineral management companies, providing targeted services such as land management, oil and gas accounting, and lease negotiation and counsel.
It also offers outsourcing services for oil and gas operators, partnering with companies to offer bookkeeping, oil and gas accounting, and other back-office operations.
“I’m excited to join Valor, as this is an innovative company with a unique value proposition to offer individual and institutional oil and gas clients,” Johnston said in a statement. “I hope to bring my creative and analytical problem-solving skills to bear in helping the company continue its amazing growth over the past few years.”
