Gil Dawson

Co-Founder and Managing Partner

Gil Dawson

Brilliant, fast-paced and impassioned with a conviction that comes from his uncanny dedication to absorbing data, Gil is an analytical powerhouse that revels in debate and new ideas.

Gil brings over 37 years of experience in management consulting, exploration, and production. He spent much of his early career with Amoco in technical, managerial and strategic roles, including a complex offshore oil joint venture in the UK North Sea that required a great deal of cooperative project management. Realizing the weaknesses of planning such major projects without reliable commodity price forecasts, Gil researched and developed the foundation for what is now Turnstone’s forecasting approach. Mr. Dawson is a geophysicist and a member of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA).
