As the president and CEO of Spectra Energy Corp., one of North America’s premier pipeline and midstream companies, Greg Ebel challenges himself and his 5,000 employees to lead the industry in terms of safety and sustainability.
Through his actions, Ebel has contributed significantly to the economic, environmental and energy security goals of the U.S. and Canada, while overseeing impressive growth and delivering superior results on behalf of Spectra’s investors, customers, employees and other stakeholders. In addition, he plays an active role as a natural gas industry advocate and spokesman.
Since becoming CEO, his key objective was to become the leading performer in reliability, efficiency and safety by 2012. Having met this objective, he has not slowed down. The company is executing on an expansion program to build-out needed energy infrastructure for North America, and Ebel has set an ambitious goal to secure investments in new and existing assets by 2016 and to continue to lead the sector in safety and reliability.
Ebel refers to Spectra Energy as the “FedEx” of energy — able to deliver energy safely, consistently and on time. His goal is for Spectra to be the company of choice for employees, suppliers, partners, investors and government advisors.
As an early adopter of proven technologies and best practices in safety and sustainability, Spectra Energy continues to lead the industry in those areas. The company has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, the Dow Jones North America Index, has ranked first in the energy sector for the Carbon Disclosure Project’s Leadership Index, been included in Corporate Responsibility magazine’s prestigious 100 Best Corporate Citizens list, and was named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by Ethisphere Institute.
Ebel’s compelling vision for Spectra Energy allows him to create an open, transparent, diverse and inclusive environment. He sets the bar high, while inspiring confidence and commitment among his team.
