Congratulations to our very own President, Ryan Bessant!

If you have recently picked picked up this months issue of Business in Calgary, you will notice a familiar face among its pages.


On June 26, Ryan was recognized at the 2019 Business in Calgary Gala where he received the prestigious Leaders Award for his tireless pursuit to grow Heavy Industries towards success. As a Co-founder of Heavy, Ryan has dedicated himself to this team and organization over the past 16 years and has demonstrated excellence in leadership throughout his journey. He continuously pushes the boundaries of his business by never ceasing to ask why. When faced with a problem, there is no stone that will be left unturned in his plan to overcome.


In the early days, Ryan began as the Production Manager. This experience in the shop gave him the opportunity to understand process, materials, and best practices. He knows the ins and outs of both production and sales, so when Ryan took on the role of President over thirteen years ago, it was a natural fit. Ryan remains engaged with all facets of the business, overseeing high-level aspects of sales, design, project management, fabrication, and installation.


It comes as no surprise to us that he has been recognized as a top Business Leader in Calgary. We are proud of our Chief and Commander’s success. We look forward to what the future holds under Ryan’s direction.


From all of us at the Heavy team,

Congratulations Mr. Ryan Bessant.
