As marketing manager at Enseco Energy Services, Sheryl Winczura has access to many high-visibility projects. She’s constantly working on projects that are public-facing, put her “in the spotlight a little more” and have high C-suite visibility, she said.

“The advantage of working for a smaller oil and gas services-providing company is that we wear a lot of different hats,” said Winczura, whose Calgary-based company has 350 employees.

“I’m so fortunate that I have access to senior management meetings and that I have a lot of support.”
