Lee Hodder was exposed to energy issues while growing up in the Middle East with family ties to the oil and gas industry. The first non-Arabic graduate of Qatar University’s College of Engineering, he spent more than four years at Royal Dutch Shell on large-scale gas-to-liquids and carbon capture projects before entering HBS.
“I want to be an influence for a balanced approach to energy: I see the benefits of oil and gas, together with the need for the industry to do its work responsibly. At HBS, I learned how important it is to engage in difficult conversations around issues, even if you don’t always come to consensus.”
