Landry was instrumental in leading Petroleum Co-Ordinators’ into diversification of their existing services. “Now, not only do we provide Petroleum Co-Ordinators’ core services, (onsite professionals to perform offshore cost analysis and logistics) said Landry, “but we have enhanced our offerings with engineering, wellsite leadership, and quality and safety control. Essentially, as an outsourced resource, we deliver human capital to our clients, rather than tangible products. There are many variables in our projects, and I enjoy being part of the entire process. It’s important to me that our clients know us well enough to trust us, and that we ensure their needs are being met in every area. I’ve always had a desire to help people, and find it satisfying to match employees with the right projects successfully.”

Landry has helped lead Petroleum Co-Ordinators into several new international business ventures that service clients’ operations in countries such as Mexico, West Africa, Colombia, Suriname and Israel, for example. “I’m proud of our recent diversification and assume a great deal of ownership over what happens within our company. I consider myself accountable for ensuring that both our employees and clients feel satisfied. I’m energized by contributing to the growth of our company, while continuing to create new opportunities for myself and my team.”
