Honoring Leadership Skills and Commitment to Service

Hart Energy’s “Impactful Veterans in Energy” program recognizes demonstrated leadership and contributions to the energy industry by military veterans – through the roles they play fulfilling a company’s mission or advancing its long-term success. Nominating trail-blazers is encouraged. This awards program seeks to recognize all facets of the veteran community.

Companies are encouraged to nominate veterans within their organization who have distinguished themselves through leadership, exceptional passion for problem-solving and/or specific accomplishments. Nominees may also include those deserving recognition for their potential impact on the future of the industry.

The printed supplement recognizing the 2021 class of Impactful Veterans in Energy will be published in January 2022. 

Nominations closed September 18, 2021
