Our Values

While times have changed, our passion and mission remain the same. MCN is here to help Energy & Utilities organizations improve processes, implement best practices and enable staff to work more effectively and safely with access to the most current industry trends and knowledge. The values that our founders – Amanda Valeur & Pam Gustafson – built into the foundation of MCN continue to be our defining characteristics:

Passion about making a measurable impact in all we do. Our unique culture and approach deliver enduring results, true to each client’s specific situation. We’ll always do the right thing by our clients, our people and our communities.

Success through collaborative relationships. We all work wholeheartedly as members of the team for a common goal. Our collaborative working style emphasizes teamwork, trust, and tolerance for diverging opinions.

Energy & Utilities focus Our teams have worked within Energy and Utilities for decades, and therefore truly comprehend the industry issues, constraints, and have deep experience in the results that work

Intellectual integrity. Integrity means distinguishing right from wrong and doing the right thing. We represent our capabilities honestly and only make promises we can keep. Integrity also requires courage and accountability. We deliver work of the highest quality by our standards as well as those of our clients. We do not compromise our intellectual integrity for special interests. We share our objective findings with clients—even those that may be unpopular—in a manner that is both candid and respectful.

Community commitment. We believe in basic human rights, which is why in 2011 we created the MCN Foundation, a non-for- profit organization which seeks to empower African communities to take control of their health and safety and to establish a vibrant and participatory health care system.
