“The passing of Charlie Fischer is a great loss for the Enbridge Board and the energy industry,” Greg Ebel, chair of the Enbridge board, remarked in a written statement emailed to Rigzone. “Charlie was an icon in the energy industry and a true leader. On behalf of the Enbridge Board, we express our deepest sympathies and condolences to the Fischer family for their loss.”

Fischer, who joined the board in July 2009, sat on the board’s Audit, Finance and Risk Committee and chaired its Safety and Reliability Committee, Enbridge stated.

“Charlie was an exceptional person and a thought leader in the industry and all facets of business, policy and community,” commented Enbridge President and CEO Al Monaco. “He was a mentor and a friend and his deep commitment to the community will have a lasting impact.”
