The Denver Business Journal recently released its 2017 Top 40 Women in Energy list, and selected Principal Melinda Truskowski as one of the honorees. The list, now in its fourth consecutive year, recognizes women who are key influencers in metro Denver’s energy sector.
Senior Manager David Heinze submitted the nomination, which lists some of Melinda’s top professional accomplishments in energy and contributions to the Denver business community, starting with her role as an exploration geophysicist, including being a part of the team that drilled the first horizontal well in the Austin Chalk, South Texas. Melinda has also directed business operations in the Rocky Mountain region and managed Denver brownfield redevelopment projects throughout the Platte Valley. She has led global unconventional oil and gas initiatives, and adapted conventional oil and gas management systems and regulation to be applicable to unconventional resource development.
Melinda joined Ramboll Environ in 2015 to serve as the Americas Director of the Oil & Gas sector. She provides strategic and business development leadership by enhancing the depth and breadth of the firm’s technical capabilities, with an eye toward expanding its geographic footprint, and building its market reputation.
The 2017 honorees are profiled in this special report (in print and online) of the Denver Business Journal. A special reception for the honorees was held on April 19, 2017, at the Grand Hyatt Pinnacle Club in Denver.
