Managing Partner

Rob Gryba

Rob entered the Oilpatch in 1986 rebuilding bottom hole pumps and peddling rope, soap and dope in a supply store in Rainbow Lake. That led Rob to working in Materials Management/Purchasing for Dome Petroleum, Canterra Energy and Husky Oil where he moved to a corporate position in Calgary in 1990. Next stop was taking a position commencing the Production equipment division of Platinum Grover (Platinum Energy Services) in 1993 eventually becoming the president and guiding the significant growth of the company. Rob’s passion for New, reconditioned and surplus production equipment led to many great relationships and experiences and eventually co-founding RARE Oilfield Services in 2010.

Rob keeps busy away from the office with his wife and three daughters and their involvement with hockey, lacrosse, music and things that he doesn’t understand like decorating, shopping & style! Rob is a long-time coach with Okotoks Minor hockey having been lucky enough to coach all three of his daughters.

He quickly acclimatized to the industry’s culture and reputation for integrity and hard work. Tom’s experience ranges from providing oilfield services to drilling, completions and production operations, as well as providing manufactured modular workforce housing to the industry.
