Jill Evanko, President and CEO of Chart Industries has been named the 2020 World LNG Executive of the Year.

Presented at the World LNG Summit, the award recognises those who make an outstanding contribution to the development and future of the LNG industry through either commercial or technical innovation or the development of knowledge and learning in his or her organisation.

“It is an honour to be recognised as this year’s World LNG Executive of the Year. It is a testament to the entire Chart team for their hard work and dedication to progressing Chart as a key company in the LNG space and innovation for the clean energy future,” said Evanko.

Evanko was recognised by last year’s winners, Frederic Barnaud, Group CEO, Pavilion Energy and Jack Fusco. 

“The COVID-19 pandemic this year has posed many challenges across industries, disrupting supply chains, and impacting manufacturing operations globally. In these difficult times, many have gone above and beyond to perform and deliver,” said Barnaud.

“Chart Industries is no exception and continues to be at the forefront of cryogenic equipment and technology solutions that will keep our industry running. We commend the resilience and leadership of Jill Evanko. It is my pleasure to pass on the World LNG Executive of the Year Award to Jill.”
