    My wife Teri and I were both born in  Alberta and first moved to Fort McMurray with ATCO Gas in 2005 and immediately fell in love with the energy and opportunities available.  When we moved away for personal and professional reasons in 2009, we knew we would try to return if the opportunity presented itself. Fortunately it did and when I was offered the position to Manage Fort McMurray operations ATCO Gas I accepted and we were back in 2012. I have been with ATCO for 30 years

    Both Teri and myself  have enjoyed the fundraising and volunteer events as well and getting to know new friends and employees. We take pride that this is our home and endeavor to find ways to make it an attractive place to be and dispel the myths that seem to find the ears of others who have not given the Community a fair and impartial look.
