Quinn Holtby is the Founder, Owner and Chief Executive Officer of Katch Kan Limited, a company that has an impressive track record of successful innovation to facilitate protecting lives and Mother Earth.
Quinn Holtby began working on drilling rigs in the late 1970’s as a roughneck. He quickly worked his way up to a drilling position and drilled for several years on a wide variety of rigs. In 1986, after witnessing many near fatal accidents, mostly as a result of the slippery work conditions due to uncontrolled fluid discharge on the drill floor, Quinn decided to do something about it. Giving up a successful career in drilling, he decided to pursue his ideas of minimizing accidents on the drill floor while at the same time protecting the environment.
Since then, Quinn has pioneered – and continues to pioneer – an extensive array of leading-edge products and services that are fast becoming recognized industry standards by improving safety and environmental responsibility while minimizing risk and maximizing performance.
Why did you choose to participate in this event?
Raising money for Stars is important – saving lives is important. Critical care is essential.
Why do you support STARS?
From personal experience, Quinn knows the importance of STARS. He had an accident that required emergency response. The ambulance took hours to find his location and two hours to transport him by gravel roads to the nearest hospital, 20 minutes away. The ambulance drivers did not know how to work the GPS and were lost in the country. Had they known that Quinn had a broken back with two crushed vertebrae; they might have called STARS. Working on the rigs is dangerous work; locations are remote and the roads can be treacherous.
