Chief Operating Officer
Matthew led Enbridge Energy’s Tank Projects group in the Midcontinent from 2015 to 2018. His team was responsible for the inspection and maintenance of more than 100 tanks across three terminals. In addition to his daily responsibilities, much of his effort was focused on standardizing the tank program across North America to improve project schedules and predictability while reducing project costs. His tenure at Enbridge also included roles as business development engineer and project manager.
Much of Mr. Turner’s career has been focused on process improvement in several industries including health care, manufacturing and defense. A graduate of Lockheed Martin’s Leadership Development Program, Matt has worked in several engineering and production-related capacities, including a position at Continental Industries where he was tasked with streamlining the company’s manufacturing capabilities.
He was responsible for designing and implementing a new production line and eventually managed product manufacturing for an entire business unit. He continued his focus on process improvement when he became a Lean Consultant at Integris Health. His role was primarily geared toward training medical professionals to streamline healthcare processes and improve patient care.
Mr. Turner holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Engineering and Management from Oklahoma State University and a Master of Science degree in Business Administration, with a concentration in Finance, from Southern Methodist University. He currently resides in Cushing with his wife, Amanda, and their three children. Matt is active in his local church and a member of the Cushing chapter of Rotary International.

A need to improve customer optionality and efficiency within the mid-continent gave way for the beginnings of Getka. Our focus? Terminalling, commercial hub development and customer delivery optionality. As life would have it, four guys scattered in the Midwest all with the same vision collided serendipitously to form Getka in March of 2018. Each, well-versed in their own unique area of expertise, Getka Energy is the result of a foundation built upon a unique collective of experience in midstream. Four founders, one vision, Getka.
Tortuga, named for being the strongest and safest Caribbean island port held by the Buccaneers in the mid-17th century, is a ~50-acre parcel located in the northwest corner of the Cushing south tank farm complex. Phase 1 operations will begin in January 2019, with anticipated completion of Phase 2 by Q3 2020, which will include an expanded tank farm. Tortuga will serve as the Getka stronghold for its storage and throughput across infrastructure within Oklahoma and beyond.
