In Queensland, Australia, she designed the contractor management operating model for a new natural gas drilling program for a major Australian natural gas player. Alex also gained invaluable global experience while delivering learning and development programs for McKinsey, focused on communications, problem solving and project management excellence.
As a Keystone XL Stakeholder Analyst for TransCanada Pipelines, Alex modeled regional North American crude oil supply and disposition by aggregating extensive historical data on production, imports, pricing and refining. She then analyzed this data for historical patterns along with future trends, resulting in a market forecast from which senior leaders based business development decisions.
Alex also provided support to the Keystone XL project during the NEB application and trail by forecasting competitive responses to the application, looking at historical competitive behavior and working with external legal counsel to incorporate expectations into the trial preparations. She also drafted the commercial team’s economics-based rebuttals to NGOs and regulatory interveners by using oil market research to create succinct and logical positions in an attempt to generate broad Keystone XL support.
Alex earned her MBA with Distinction from Western University where she was also the recipient of the Ivey Emerging Leader Award and the Ivey Scholarship for leadership and excellence.
