Ian MacGregorPresident & Chairman at North West Refining Inc.
Ian MacGregor is a fourth generation Calgarian. His great grandparents arrived here on a wagon.
Ian is an engineering entrepreneur who likes to start from scratch and embraces the technically complex provided margins are high.
Ian has never done the same thing twice. He has never had a real job he didn’t create. Like his Mom, he has a childlike interest in anything that involves building something. He has been doing this now for more than 40 years and calls it “having fun”.
Businesses Ian has started more recently include: North West Refining, Enhance Energy, the maker of the world’s largest system to capture and utilize manmade CO2, Carraig Ridge, architecture and land development in the Rockies and Qube Technologies which applies artificial intelligence to reduce methane emissions.
Ian can weld, machine, mechanic, design and draw and has built buildings, process plants, special purpose machines first for fun but often for profit. He is also the founder of The Canadian Museum of Making. (www.museumofmaking.org)
