Ian McCool, who previously served as project manager for Peak’s North Slope construction division, rejoined the company as vice president of North Slope operations and development, in October. In this role, he will focus on leading the North Slope team and directing all operations, planning, and execution for the region as well as growing the company through strategic business development.
Based in the company’s Anchorage office, Ian brings more than eight years of project management experience overseeing the execution of capital and major maintenance projects in the downstream oil and gas and chemicals sectors in the southwestern U.S. as well as in the Gulf of Mexico. Additionally, he was responsible for overseeing construction, maintenance, and operations contracts for major clients on Alaska’s North Slope.
A graduate of Clemson University, Ian graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s in civil engineering. “Ian brings a depth of experience in construction, maintenance, oil and gas, and processing,” said Cody Gauer, Peak’s president and chief executive officer. “His knowledge in major project execution, field operations, and strategic planning, as well as his established relationships with major clients, will be a valuable asset to the Peak team as he continues to grow and develop our arctic portfolio.”
