Rodger Bernar is a proactive leader with vision. At Husky I watched Rodger introduce and then champion a new, unproven diluent reduction technology that is now poised to change the game for oilsands economics. He guided the thorough technical and economic evaluations. He skillfully built support through line and senior management, including that of a joint venture partner. Rodger has a unique combination of business acumen and technical skills. He is strategic and attentive to detail. He is willing to roll up his sleeves. His professional approach and enthusiasm engages colleagues and other teams and drives consensus. I have enjoyed our collaboration.
