This is a 3-part Q&A series with Chris McManaman, Director Commodity Trading and Risk Management, CGI Global
Let’s talk about your career progression—how did you end up where you are today?
I have spent 25 years in helping energy trading and risk management operations obtain the most value from their software implementations from solution architect, integration architect, ETRM implementer, business intelligence architect, prescriptive analytics, operational intelligence, legacy application and data retirement and massive fortune 500 energy trading and supply chain transformation projects. I even helped build a natural gas online exchange in the early 2000’s. In terms of commodities, I have worked on natural gas, NGL, power, crude oil, grains and oil seeds solutions.
