Dagmar Knutson, CPA, CA, is the Executive Director of Ten Peaks Innovation Alliance Inc. and CFO at Fusion Production Systems Inc., an oil and gas manufacturing company, with more than 25 years’ experience working in the energy industry in Alberta. It was when her son came home from Grade 9 without a keen understanding of current innovation in the oil and gas industry that she decided there was an opportunity to do more. She was inspired to organize a student conference after emailing her son's teachers with industry innovation and technology insights every month for two years leading up to the 2021 Ten Peaks conference.
Dagmar immigrated with her parents as a toddler to Alberta, growing up in Drayton Valley on a sawmill. It’s where her love of trees began and still to this day, the forest and mountains is where Dagmar finds peace and clarity from the busy world of oil and gas.
She earned a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Calgary - the first to graduate from university in her family - and obtained her CPA, Chartered Accountant designation in Calgary in 1995. Dagmar has worked in several accounting roles within the oil and gas, IT, and entrepreneurial companies prior to founding Ten Peaks in 2021.
Her focus with Ten Peaks is to engage, educate and inspire thousands of Alberta students and teachers with high-quality learning opportunities, elevating their insights and perspectives on the cross-collaboration between energy, environment and climate.
Dagmar lives in Red Deer, Alberta with her husband Darryl, and their sweet and feisty labradoodle hound dog, Cyder.
