Kris, Founder & Owner
Kris and his brother are joint owners of Prowler Energy Services.
He brings our team 24 years of experience in the industry, specializing in Coil Tubing for the last 20 years. During his career he has accomplished a wide variety of positions including working in the field on the Service Rig side, as well as being a Sales Representative.
Kris and his brother Rocky found a need for Coil Tubing as gas prices rose, and founded Prowler Energy in 1998 to break into that market. Spearheading the Sales department and meeting with clients face to face, Kris established a name for Prowler Energy quickly in the downtown Calgary region as well as in the field, resulting in rapid growth of the organization.
Now, Kris is located in Brooks, and manages our field offices and operations. He overseas all aspects of the business, manages our field supervisors and crew, steers our management team, keeps a close eye on daily operations and ensures our services maintain safe, consistent, and are delivered in a timely manner.
Given the time, you will find Kris soaking up all the summer fun at a golf course, venturing out to the peaks of the Canadian Rockies for a taste of adventure, and spending time with family.
