“The COVID-19 pandemic this year has posed many challenges across industries, disrupting supply chains, and impacting manufacturing operations globally. In these difficult times, many have gone above and beyond to perform and deliver. Chart Industries is no exception and continues to be at the forefront of cryogenic equipment and technology solutions that will keep our industry running. We commend the resilience and leadership of Jill Evanko. It is my pleasure to pass on the World LNG Executive of the Year Award to Jill,” shared Frederic Barnaud.
