Project Lead and ETRM Veteran Bolsters Lucido Presence in the Canadian Market to Better Serve Growing Client List
Lucido, a specialist consultancy and software provider, announced today that Christine Colbert is the firm’s market lead for Energy in Canada. Ms. Colbert, previously a contractor for the firm, has proven an exceptionally capable delivery resource and brings a wealth of contacts in the Canadian energy space. With Lucido continuing to grow its energy footprint and the importance of the region to the firm’s longer-term plans, it was critical to have a respected and talented resource to lead Client services.
Christine has both broad and deep expertise with E/CTRM applications and brings not only the ability to continue serving clients using applications with which Lucido has considerable expertise (Allegro Development and Openlink Endur), but also helps expand the firm’s knowledge across the greater set of applications more commonly used in the Canadian market. Ms. Colbert joining the firm will be part and parcel with the firm’s goals of adding resources to the Canadian team and working with a recent joiner, Danita Stovall, to serve that market.
“Certainly Christine came highly recommended to the firm when we first looked to work in the Canadian market but we did not anticipate such a great cultural fit. As we continue to grow our client list, it is critical that we maintain the caliber of staff seen elsewhere and Christine brings that to the firm in spades” said CEO, Sean Kilpatrick. “We are very excited to formally open our presence in the Canadian market and have the right leadership to do so”.
Prior to joining Lucido, Ms. Colbert was a consultant performing project management, business analysis and numerous ‘project rescues’ in the Canadian market. Prior to that, she was a Senior Manager at KPMG, leading their Canadian ETRM consulting practice. Before KPMG, she was a business analyst and project manager at RiskAdvisory, a division of SAS, overseeing project implementations of BookRunner at a number of large Canadian energy companies.
“ETRM consulting continues to be in high demand in the Canadian marketplace. There is a need for consultants with deep product and industry knowledge”, commented Ms. Colbert on her appointment. “Having worked with Lucido’s consulting resources for the past year and seeing firsthand the exceptional quality of their ETRM delivery, it is great to see Lucido open an office in Canada as part of their larger growth plans. Being asked to be a part of this growth is exciting for me personally, but also for Canadian companies who seek to maximize the investment in their energy trading & risk management solutions.”
