President & CEO
Dick Brown is President and Chief Executive Officer of the Ferus Group of Companies and a member of the Executive Advisory Group. In 2001, Dick founded Ferus as an energy services company specializing in the production and off-road supply of cryogenic fluids for well stimulation and enhanced oil recovery. Ferus has grown to become the leading provider of industrial gases to the Canadian energy market, and had at one point expanded its operations into the United States Appalachian and Rockies regions. In 2010, Dick recognized the opportunity for natural gas to fuel the high horsepower market in North America, and has since created and positioned Ferus Natural Gas Fuels (Ferus NGF) and Eagle LNG Partners (Eagle LNG), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ferus NGF LP, as North American leaders in the natural gas fueling business.
Dick has over 30 years of experience in the oil and gas industry. Prior to Ferus, Dick held several key management positions at Amoco Petroleum Company Ltd. before founding, growing and successfully divesting two independent oil and gas companies. Dick is a professional engineer and a University of Alberta 1983 gold medal recipient.
