Jeff’s passion and optimism for the energy industry is clear. He has over 20 years of experience in geomatics engineering, working primarily on complex energy projects throughout western Canada. With an executive MBA from the University of Calgary and connections across all aspects of industry, Jeff focuses on integrating geomatics innovation into every stage of our projects.
As some worry about the downturn in today’s energy industry, Jeff sees opportunity. He explains that Canada has the third largest oil reserves in the world and that global energy demand is expected to increase 37% by 2040. He says that responding to today’s competitive market with innovation, environmental leadership, reduced costs, and increased efficiencies, positions Stantec to strengthen its service areas and capitalize in the future.
Whether it’s working on service areas such as pipeline integrity or helping clients understand their land rights for a proposed disturbance, Jeff believes the keys to success are developing thought leadership, collaboration across business units, and treating our service areas and clients as our community.
