“In August 2019, we engaged JEM Advisors to help us evaluate a refinery acquisition in British Columbia, Canada. The JEM team is extremely knowledgeable in process safety, operational discipline, mechanical integrity, and hazard recognition. We are extremely pleased to have worked with JEM on this transaction, which resulted in the successful acquisition of the Prince George Refinery.”
- Krasen Chervenkov, CFA Director, Acquisitions & Special Projects, Tidewater Midstream
"JEM Advisors has a very deep bench of capital project management expertise. We found JEM Advisors consultants to be very experienced, knowledgeable, and most capable. JEM Advisor’s consultants assisted our organization in an assessment of a newly developed Operational Readiness process incorporated into the existing project management process. Their input led to constructive changes and ultimately a much more robust overall project management program. JEM Advisors also assisted us in conducting several project Operational Readiness Reviews along the project lifecycle at designated review control points. During these reviews the Advisor’s consultants helped to identify significant gaps and provided professional recommendations for actionable improvements helping these projects track towards successful operationally effective project delivery. The Advisors went well beyond expectations to provide various practical templates and tools for projects that have also evolved into standardized procedures and processes for future projects. We worked with Bill Straker and Tom Hanson on several occasions, and they were instrumental in assisting troubled projects. Bill and Tom continued to provide their expertise after their initial assignments to assist project teams and they remained engaged in a mentoring capacity. We also found Jenny Meyer, JEM Advisor’s President & CEO, was very easy to work with, and she provided creative ideas and solutions as to how her company Advisors could “come along side” trouble project teams to assist them and help them get or stay on track in constructive and non-threatening ways. We highly recommend JEM Advisors in any capacity to assist any organization in Capital Project Management."
- Austin C. Mattson II, Global Projects Execution Consultant, LyondellBasell
