Energy industry veterans Colin Manson & James McCallum meet to discuss how they could transform operating models in the energy industry.
Having experienced the industries third major downturn since 1986 the founders recognised that with an ageing workforce and further depressed business margins across the energy supply chain the industry needed fundamental change. With an increasingly louder call for a zero carbon future the traditional energy industry was rapidly becoming an industry that was out of step with public opinion. The survival of the industry , already broken , required a radical new strategy which could deliver energy diversification , rapid digitisation , process optimisation and connectivity with capability. For James McCallum and Colin Manson the answer was the creation of Xergy and the development of the Work Management Automation platform Proteus.
