Entrepreneurship is at the very core of Sky Eye Measurement. We strive to hire passionate people who are self-starters and innovators because of the tone set by Sky Eye’s President, Richard Hansen. We are proud to announce that Ernst and Young have recognized this entrepreneurial spirit, and that last week, Richard was named ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ for the Prairies Region in the Energy Services category.
The EY Entrepreneur of the Year awards recognize entrepreneurs for their leadership, vision and achievements. It is common knowledge that the energy industry in our home province of Alberta has experienced setback after setback over the last five years. Through it all, Sky Eye has not only diversified, but grown and prospered. Sky Eye’s success is a testament to Richard’s ability to lead and empower a team of driven, bold innovators who won’t take ‘no’ for an answer.
Richard is known to credit his team for Sky Eye’s success, and says of his win: “what an amazing accomplishment… this is a true testament to our team’s passion. Without fail, they take full ownership of their work and service – they are the reason we are successful.”Since inception in 2005, Sky Eye has moved from a focus on portable measurement solutions, basic metering and truck offload packages to rail and truck transloading units, Sky-Mod portable terminals, LACT packages, blending skids and more. Recently, Sky Eye contributed to a historical project – the first rail-to-truck jet fuel transloader in Mexico.
