Energy executives reveal industry priorities
“It’s not uncommon to find a considerable amount of debt in the capital structure in the energy industry. The reason is the industry is capital-intensive with significant tangible assets and large balance sheets.” — Bryan Benoit, national managing partner of Energy for Grant Thornton
“All companies know the names and locations of their primary suppliers, but they rarely know the other companies within their expanded supplier ecosystem. This introduces unknown and unmitigated risk to the supply chain operating model.” — Jonathan Eaton, a principal in Transformation at Grant Thornton
