In 2009 XTO Energy was ranked 325th on the Forbes Global 2000.
Simpson and Davis initially remained in the background, leaving the Rangers in the hands of managing partner and CEO Chuck Greenberg and president Nolan Ryan. They served largely as senior consultants, an arrangement that continued after Greenberg resigned in 2011, making Ryan the undisputed day-to-day head of the franchise.
Ryan left the ownership group in 2013, but Davis and Simpson have mostly left the Rangers in the hands of general manager Jon Daniels and have rarely interfered.
In 2012, Simpson, along with his wife Janice, started a record label for emerging musicians named RayLynn Records. Hear Me, the debut album from up and coming rock musician Kyle Sherman, was the first recording produced by the company.
