​Ready to rebuild: Rising Stars Class of 2019 emerge as new generation of leaders

There is lots of talk these days about the energy transition, with the world moving towards a greater mix of energy supply to manage carbon emissions and climate change.

In Calgary’s oil and gas industry there is another transition under way, as new leaders with new ideas take their place at the head of the class.

The Daily Oil Bulletin’s 2019 Rising Stars, presented in partnership with Fluor Canada, are representative of this new leadership.

Despite the challenges of the last five years — and the uncertainty of the future — the 14 members of the Class of 2019 are forging ahead, driving technological change, creating new enterprises in the face of great odds, and re-inventing how the industry does business.

From robots that clean tanks to leveraging DNA technology to understand bacterial contamination, futuristic technology is being employed by this newer generation to rebuild the industry.

One thing that hasn’t changed, however, is the individual commitment to giving back to the community. Industry leaders are community leaders, and this year’s Rising Stars are no exception, working through a variety of organizations to share their good fortune.
