Oil and Gas Awards Canada
On Wednesday June 24, the Oil & Gas Awards for Canada were handed out in Calgary. It was quite a night for Katch Kan’s founder, CEO & President Quinn Holtby.
The company was up against the industry’s best for three awards, and took home the Best Oilfield Services Company of the year honour.
The biggest honour for Holtby came at the end of the night. That’s when the final award was given out. Unlike the other awards where there were three to four finalists, when it came to Industry Leader honours Holtby and Katch Kan were the only words mentioned.
An emotional Holtby humbly accepted the award before addressing the crowd. At the end he was given a rousing standing ovation by the more than 300 in attendance.
Here is Katch Kan founder, CEO & President Quinn Holtby’s acceptance speech.
Before the awards gala began, iKan Media chatted with the Oil & Gas Awards COO, Oliver Bridgen. Topics included how the awards came about and while he didn’t want to say it before his show even started, we managed to coax out of him why Quinn Holtby was chosen for the Industry Leader award.
Another first for Holtby actually happened earlier in the day. Turns out the man chosen for the Industry Leader award was also the moderator for a panel looking at the challenges being faced by business leaders in the industry today.
