A conversation with Cory Wargacki, Key Account Management at NDT Global
Cory Wargacki currently holds the position of Manager, Key Account Management with NDT Global Canada.
Cory graduated with a diploma in Electronics Engineering Technology from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology. He joined NDT Global in 2004 as an electronic technician.
Throughout his career, he has held many different roles in the pipeline inspection industry from calibrating, repairing, and operating In-Line Inspection tools, through to managing of Key Accounts for the Canadian region. Within Cory’s current role, he is an avid speaker at regional technology events and conferences.
BRW: What do you hope the audience will learn from this webinar?
Through discussion of different technologies and methodologies used to assess corrosion in a pipeline, I hope the audience will increase their knowledge base on the advantages of Ultrasonic technology for detection and sizing of corrosion features that are present within aging infrastructure. The webinar will focus on how pipeline operators can better understand the value added benefits of utilizing Ultrasonic wall measurement technology and how this technology fits into their Integrity Management Plan.
BRW: What discussions do you look forward to having with the audience?
I look forward to hearing about the audience’s experiences with differing ILI technologies for corrosion assessment in pipelines. Have they seen limitations in the technologies they have chosen? I am also interested to hear some feedback – are current technologies meeting the requirements of their Integrity management programs?
BRW: What do you enjoy most about your role?
I have always been fascinated by technology and how quickly it can advance. In my current role, I enjoy working alongside pipeline operators determining which solutions NDT Global can provide to ensure the integrity of their assets. Through this close collaboration with my clients, I am rewarded by finding solutions to often interesting and challenging situations that exist in the industry.
BRW: How did you get into the Industry?
I entered the industry 14 years ago as an Electronic Technologist with NDT Global repairing and calibrating In-Line inspection equipment. As I learned more about the industry and technology, I moved forward into a field role running ILI projects and now into the Manager, Key Account Management for the Canadian region. The knowledge I have garnered from these different roles in the In-Line inspection industry has helped me thoroughly understand the pipeline integrity industry and given me the ability to understand the requirements of the pipeline operators who have partnered with NDT Global as their Ultrasonic In-Line inspection provider.
BRW: What is your favorite place in the world and why?
I have been very fortunate that throughout my career I have been given the opportunity to travel globally and experience many different countries and cultures. Through all of my travel, I would have to say that my favorite place in the world is anywhere I have not yet had a chance to experience.
Join Cory Wargacki on 26th June for a webinar entitled ‘Exploring The Limitations and Advantages of ILI Corrosion Inspection Technologies‘ at 3PM London/10AM New York
