Suzanne is the CEO of energy startup Imaginea Energy Corp. which recently raised $300 million in private equity from U.S.-based Lime Rock Partners. Over the last 15 years, Suzanne has built four oil and gas companies from scratch and then sold them; the most recent being Blackshire Energy for $358 million. During that time and those experiences, she has shown her versatility and consistency by growing multiple companies with different teams, different finance partners, different banking relationships, and different market conditions; being only one of a few female presidents in a male dominated industry. She has pioneered and evolved new organizational model, based on the wisdom of Mother Nature that has no hierarchy and incorporates self-managing, collaboration, transparency, innovation and intuition. Suzanne values balance in her life and in addition to working incredibly hard, she includes fitness, yoga, meditation, journaling, and long walks with her dog. She believes strongly in gratitude and giving back and that everything we do can make a difference. She organizes and leads an annual charity event ‘Steps to End Homelessness’ combining her love of fitness and philanthropy and has also begun a charitable foundation.
