Richard started his career as an Operations and Instrumentation Technician with Conoco Philips, where he worked for over 16 years and worked extensively across Alberta at various production facilities. Richard‘s experience with Conoco Philips culminated with a focus in SCADA and Automation. By then, Richard had recognized a gap in the industry for portable SCADA equipment that was easy to use as a flexible and temporary solution. To meet this need, Richard founded Sky Eye Measurement in 2005.
Initially, Sky Eye was positioned as a “measurement solutions provider” and served clients across Western Canada by providing portable transloaders. Today, Sky Eye Measurement is known as a “Global Leader in Energy Transfer Solutions” and has offices in Acheson, Calgary, Monterrey and Houston. Sky Eye’s rapidly growing team of 125 is comprised of Engineers, Designers, Journeyman Pipefitters, Welders, Electricians, Automation Technicians, Site Personnel and more.
Richard and Sky Eye have been the recipients of prestigious awards like the EY Entrepreneur of the Year (2019), Business in Edmonton’s Business Leaders (2019), The ABA Global Growth Award (2022) and the ABA Global Innovation Award (2023). Richard aims to deliver effective solutions to his clients and, importantly, create an exceptional workplace for his team.
