2021 Pinnacle Award Recipient

Oil and Gas Investor's 2021 Influential Women in Energy Pinnacle Award Recipient

Martha A. Burger

President, Oklahoma City University


Martha Burger has had quite a career. In fact, she’s had a couple of them. She’s certainly earned her upcoming retirement from the pinnacle of that 40-plus years. She is president of Oklahoma City University (OCU), where she’s not only the leader but also an alumni. During her journey, she’s made indelible marks on OCU and the oil and gas industry, an industry that gave her a start and one she says she fell in love with at an early stage.

Burger is Oil and Gas Investor’s 2021 Pinnacle Award recipient. While accepting the honor, she sat down for a virtual conversation with the 2021 Influential Women in Energy host Jessica Morales for a special virtual event honoring this year’s class.
