Please note your affiliation and years of experience in the energy and/or environmental field: 

Company -- Argus Media
Title – Head of Natural Gas and Power Services, North America
Experience -- 27 years in energy publishing

Any particular achievement/interest in energy/environment you would like to mention?

Energy and commodity prices have become universally more transparent, but that is not to say they are understandable. That’s where we come in. Argus Media has expanded rapidly worldwide, in the western hemisphere and in the U.S. But not a day goes by when a source does not tell me how competitive that the energy information space has become.

In your opinion, what are important issues facing the energy industry nowadays?

Lower energy intensity and higher energy efficiency have become prevalent at a time when technology is able to explore and produce hydrocarbons in North America at lower prices than ever anticipated. 

How long have you been a member of NCAC? Any particular NCAC memory you would like to share with us?

I have been a member for more than a dozen years. I recall how the late Mark Lively would usually get into a Socratic discourse with most of our speakers after lunches and the annual dinner. Mark also made every member, new and old, feel very welcome. It’s incumbent on the rest of us to do the same.
