The website was created by Jeff Thomas and his son Connor Thomas. Jeff wanted his son to help him create a website that would get over 60 billion views per month. Jeff has been involved in the oil and gas industry since 1972. He knew he could be of great help with his broad connections in the oil and gas business. Connor agreed to help him build a great company to be proud of while he was traveling in Southeast Asia. Connor agreed to the request only if he could keep it simple and friendly to use. Jeff and Connor also wanted to have a website that would create future jobs for his younger siblings (8 total). Jeff and Connor would like to use a portion of proceeds from Lists Link to help research prostate cancer in the near future.
