At Spitfire Advisors, I have been in many roles where I have started and organized businesses or stepped up to take the next step forward.  I have spent time on the regulated side of the value chain as well as helping to create more open competitive business ventures.  I have also started power and gas projects from a blank sheet of paper, from finding and securing a site to doing all the permitting, securing customers and financing to actually working the EPC contracts for construction and commissioning.  This included eating apple pie in a land owner’s kitchen to get a site, working with the local county commissions and presenting to state Public Service Commissions.  All a big team effort with lots of players.  I call it “herding cats” with all the moving parts.  A key is getting everyone on the same plan and pulling in the same direction.
