Energy Projects Consulting LLC, based in Methuen, Massachusetts, provides a wide range of services for companies in the natural gas industry. Founder Thomas Quine had over 40 years of experience in the industry before deciding to create his own company. We sat down with Thomas to learn more about what inspired him to start his own business and his experience with CoverWallet.
What does your business do?
We provide consulting services for companies that work with liquified natural gas such as gas transmission and distribution companies, power producers, and project developers. Some of our services include helping companies with business and market development, writing and negotiating complex gas supply contracts, defining the supply propositions for LNG projects and business cases for these complex projects.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I started my first business 25 years ago which provided full engineering and construction services in this same sector. I’ve been working for 40 years in this sector and decided it was time to provide only management consulting services for the decision-makers in this industry. I started this new company very recently and the prospects for future assignments are very good.
Have you always wanted to own your own business?
This is my second startup and I have always wanted to be an owner and a CEO.
What advice can you give to other entrepreneurs?
People always complain about the companies that they work for, but you can’t complain about something and then go and do it the exact same way when you decide to create a startup. You have to do it differently and better than before. I would say, as a CEO, you need to be prepared to do everything, and then actually do it.
How did you find CoverWallet and what has your customer experience been like?
CoverWallet was actually recommended to me by a client. I’ve been really impressed that I have a case manager who I can easily get in touch with and who answers all my questions right away. They stay in touch and respond quickly to my requests. I recommend them highly
