Getting to Know Series

A networking event for developing professionals


 CHOA is pleased to be hosting our next event in the “Getting to Know Industry Leaders” series.  Individuals in the first ten years of their career are invited to meet and ask questions to Derek Evans in an informal roundtable setting. The event will be concluded with a networking session. To ensure the discussion is as authentic and constructive as possible, tickets are only available to 12 attendees. Tickets are $30 and include wine and appetizers.


We are hosting our October event with industry leader Derek Evans, President, CEO, and a Director of MEG Energy. He is a veteran oil and gas industry executive with over 35 years of experience. From May 2009 to March 2018, he served as the President, CEO and Director of Pengrowth Energy. He led the Company through a major transformation, streamlining its asset base from 35 properties to two growth assets, with over $9 billion of development opportunities. Prior to joining Pengrowth, Derek was the President, CEO and Director of Focus Energy Trust, a dividend paying royalty trust company. During his tenure at Focus, Derek was successful in increasing the market valuation approximately five times, while distributing more than $400 million to unitholders. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Mining Engineering from Queen’s University and is a registered professional engineer in Alberta.


The event takes place on Thursday October 10, 2019 at the Bank and Baron Pub (125 8 Ave SW Calgary) from 3:30 – 6:00 pm.
