Joel Gay leveraged his Booth background to bring a new, game-changing technology to life and disrupt the energy industry.
“Avant-garde.” “Revolutionary.” “A radical departure.” Ask Joel Gay how his company’s disruptive new technology, the VorTeq, is poised to shake up the oil and gas industry, and he won’t mince words: it’s big. As the president and CEO of Energy Recovery, Joel recently inked a licensing deal for the VorTeq's groundbreaking hydraulic pumping system with oil field services giant Schlumberger—a partnership that could be worth as much as $4 billion. Meanwhile, Joel has led his company’s stock price to an all-time high.
But before those successes, Chicago Booth’s Executive MBA Program gave him the management education he sought, without slowing him down. “I was on a fast track. I was already in the C-suite at that time directly reporting to a CEO, and the ability to pursue my MBA at my school of choice without compromising my career momentum was quite important.”
