Alberta’s Most 50 Influential
Geeta Sankappanavar – President, Grafton Asset Management
Four years ago, Geeta Sankappanavar realized that there was a growing need for financing in Calgary’s oil and gas sector and decided to co-found Grafton Asset Management with her longtime business partner Richard Grafton. This would be a company built to find new investment opportunities for Calgary. Sankappanavar has brought just over $1 billion in capital to the city of Calgary for investment in local energy companies, while also encouraging women in the energy industry by creating a company that is dedicated to equality in the workplace.
