Founder Alex Campbell remains as BOD Chairman, technical advisor

CALGARY, Sept. 2, 2014 /CNW/ - Vista Projects Limited (Vista), a privately-owned, Calgary-based oil and gas engineering firm, announced today the appointment of Bashar Hussien, P.Eng, Ph.D, as new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Hussien assumes the responsibilities of CEO from Vista's founder, Alex Campbell.

"This is both a great honour and a great responsibility," says Hussien. "We want to strengthen our position as an industry leader, and to accomplish that, we need to continually add value for our clients. They should think of Vista not merely as a service provider, but as a value creator. This is what Vista is becoming known for, and I want to make sure we live up to our reputation."

Hussien has over 25 years of experience in process engineering, project and business management. He started at Vista in 2008 as a Project Engineer and was regularly promoted, his career growing in tandem with Vista's expansion. He joined Vista's shareholder team in 2010 and most recently held the position of Chief Projects Officer.

Campbell, who remains Chairman of the Board of Directors, will take part in project work and business development. Says Campbell: "I'm extremely proud of what we've been able to build at Vista over the years. However, something I've missed as the company has grown and as my role evolved is a direct involvement with project work.

"We work on some of the most challenging and rewarding engineering projects in our industry and I've always enjoyed playing a part in making them a success for Vista's clients. I look forward to doing more of that, as well as continuing to be involved in new business development."

Vista is a full-service engineering and procurement firm serving oil sands and conventional oil and gas producers. Vista specializes in heavy oil facilities engineering, including greenfield, sustaining capital and enhanced oil recovery projects. Vista has engineered more than one third of Alberta's total SAGD production, working on some of the most successful projects in the oil sands and earning a reputation as a trusted partner to its clients.
