February 2018 General Meeting with Pat Bourne, CEO of EQUS
Pat shares her insights on the importance of instilling values based leadership into an organization.
25 years ago, Pat began her career as the very first employee of the Central Alberta Rural Electrification Association. Today, as CEO of EQUS, the largest member-owned utility in Canada, Pat oversees over 100 employees who provide services to an area spanning an area from the U.S. border in the south to Barrhead in the north. Pat believes in values-based leadership and strives to reflect this every day in EQUS corporate culture. She considers herself fortunate to represent an organization whose values of knowledge, respect, responsibility, quality and community so clearly align with her own. Pat was named Global’s “Woman of Vision” in February 2017, an award that celebrates the accomplishments of outstanding women in the Edmonton area who have implemented their passion, and whose personal dedication and actions inspire us all.
