Wildlife Partners is the most dominant and influential company in the exotic wildlife conservation industry. We have established ourselves as the largest and most well-known breeder, buyer, and provider of exotic wildlife to ranches in Texas. Our company offers superior service, expertise, and credibility for anyone interested in breeding exotic wildlife as a method of generating cash flow for their ranching operation.
Wildlife Partners primary mission is to facilitate conservation efforts through a capitalistic business model. We provide land owners and investors a safe and reliable avenue to acquire stock. In addition, we have created a predictable source to generate cash flow by selling offspring that are produced. By eliminating risk and making the marketplace more accessible, conservationists and investors are flocking to our programs.
In addition to serving landowners, Wildlife Partners has dedicated two of our properties to allow conservation minded investors from around the United States to participate in this dynamic industry. There is no need to acquire land, hire staff, or build infrastructure. We provide everything needed to make money and have fun, while helping to save species from all over the world.
Wildlife Partners owns two breeding facilities. One is located in Mountain Home, Texas and the other in Pettus, Texas. These two properties are home to more than 50 species of exotic wildlife. These properties serve as a great example of how successful wildlife conservation can be once a capitalistic motive is employed. Wildlife Partners has invested millions of dollars in infrastructure and has assembled the best staff in the industry. On our ranches, there are thousands of animals, and births almost every day.

Brian Gilroy – Co-Founder/CEO
I was raised in Texas and grew up with a love the outdoors. During my first career, I spent almost 20 years in the oil and gas industry. My primary focus was financial services related to the oil and gas exploration business. I spent the majority of my time managing investments for high net worth investors. In 2002, I founded an oil and gas exploration company and placed approximately $100,000,000 of investment capital in various exploration projects across the United States. In 2011, I started S&B Enterprises and began investing in the exotic wildlife industry. I was very successful with this project and was approached by investment partners with an interest in participating. As the result, I co-founded Wildlife Partners in April 2016. I live in San Antonio, Texas with my wife Cori and my three children.

Chris Gilroy – Co-Founder/CCO
Brian and I both grew up with a love for the outdoors. Whether it was just walking through the woods or fishing our Grandfather’s pond in Silsbee, TX, it didn’t matter as long as we were outside. That same love grew into a love of wildlife and pets which led me to my first career stop, working for a leading aquarium products manufacturer based in Moorpark, CA. After 4 years in the pet industry, I transitioned into the Information Technology industry. I spent 9 years working for a large publicly traded company based in Denver, CO where I was directly responsible for more than $50,000,000 in services sold. In 2009, I joined Brian in the oil and gas business. In the oil and gas business I have been responsible for overall operational management functions including investor relations and managing oil industry partner relationships. This diverse career path has helped me develop a strong background in organization management, marketing and sales. In my personal time, I’m an avid outdoorsman and a competitive bass fisherman. I live in Frisco, TX with my wife Stephanie.
Joe Gullion – President and COO
Joe joined WildLife Partners in April of 2018. Joe’s background is both broad and deep. He’s a former Navy Pilot who spent the vast majority of his years in the Aerospace industry mostly in the role of President, CEO or COO. In the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, Joe was the President of Boeing Airplane Services. He took that division of Boeing from $265MM in annual revenues to more than $3.2B in just 3 years. After his career with Boeing, he went on to multiple other companies with similar results helping all of them implement organizational structure, processes and leadership. To quote Joe, “I’ve retired twice, but I’m not very good at it.” Joe’s experience with identifying problems and creating long term solutions will be a great benefit to WildLife Partners and its long term partners.
