Leadership at Vista

Andrew Jo-Anna Leadership at VistaVista’s leaders are spread throughout the organization, diligently mapping out a successful course for the many connected units of our business.

While our leaders share common characteristics, their skillsets and backgrounds are diverse. What connects them is that they all possess the traits required to be a leader at Vista: merit and initiative.

Most of our leaders started in a different role than they work in now and have grown with the company by taking on more responsibility. They are everyday examples of the smart, humble, honest, and hardworking individuals we seek to join our organization and contribute to the challenging infrastructure projects we execute across several energy markets.
