Vince is a well-spoken individual who possesses a rare combination of vast business domain knowledge in the oil & gas industry and technical aptitude, which allows him to excel at a multitude of roles within an organization. Strategic and detail-oriented, he is able to help drive and influence business change for the better. A great person who has helped coach and mentor me along the way as well.
Vince is excellent in using technology to manage field production. He could see ways to implement solutions that most others did not see. He combines a thorough knowledge of production operations with an unusual ability to find solutions using technology and the drive to see them implemented. He is very good at training others to manage and use these solutions. I highly recommend Vince.
Vince is one of those rare people you meet who not only has the big ideas, but is also able to bring people along for the ride. He leads through influence and does so in a way where everyone feels good about what they are doing with him. He’s a great team player who is unafraid to share the limelight and to carry a big part of the load.
I worked with Vince when he was at Devon Energy and he was instrumental in showing the company the value of utilizing data to improve operations in the upstream oil and gas business, Because of his vast operations knowledge and positive attitude, he was able to bridge the gap between field operations and the corporate office with the forming decision supports centers (DSC) at several field locations. By providing the data and analytics to the DSCs, a collaborative work environment was formed that had a positive impact on production.
Vince was one a key driving forces in the successful design, and execution of DSC’s (Decision Support Center), both in Devon’s Grande Prairie District, and throughout Devon. His drive and passion for the project was always evident. As we implemented multiple DSCs in the company, Vince was always the sounding board to get advice on what will, and will not work in the real world, and how to execute, to create a DSC that creates real value to increase safety, efficiency and production
I had the opportunity to work with Vince during the roll-out of centralized support centres at a major Oil and Gas company in Calgary. Vince played a leadership role in this major initiative and his ability to think outside of the box allowed the project to drive significant value and meet some very tight deadlines. Vince’s knowledge of the business, his experience with the field operations and his people skills allowed him to meet all the challenges of the program and made him a critical element in positioning the program for success. Vince’s positive personality, analytical thinking and vision will allow him to deliver value in any roll he tackles in the future. I look forward to working with Vince again in the future.
