Episode #108: C-Suite Unplugged: Dean Setoguchi, President & CEO, Keyera Corp.

Most of us intrinsically understand where the energy we consume goes—heating, cooking, driving, and electricity. But the role of energy is so much more substantial in our everyday lives, often more so than we tend to realize.

On this episode, we speak with Dean Setoguchi, President & CEO of Keyera Corp, an integrated midstream energy business.

Dean walks us through his career from high school diploma to the C-Suite, gives listeners advice on how to advance their careers, and helps contextualize the life of a CEO.

We also talk to Dean about the many ways energy is used to improve our lives, what ESG means to the folks at Keyera, and where Dean sees the future of Alberta energy heading, among a host of other topics.
