John Gibson leads a company roughly the size of Nexen or PCL Construction, and if you haven’t heard of it yet, you will. Tervita Corp. formed in March 2012, when the ownership group for 13 private companies – including CCS Corp. and Hazco Environmental – consolidated its holdings to create Alberta’s largest energy services company. Gibson will lead the new company, which employs 4,200 people and pulls in more than $5 billion in annual revenues, and hopes to turn it into a one-stop shop for energy services that does everything from developing an asset to reclaiming the land after it’s gone. While the company is new, Gibson isn’t exactly new to the role, having served as president of Halliburton’s energy services group.
