Dagmar Knutson


Executive Director
Ten Peaks Innovation

Dagmar Knutson, CPA, CA, is the Executive Director of Ten Peaks Innovation Alliance (a not for profit) and CFO at Fusion Production Systems Inc., an oil and gas manufacturing company, with more than 25 years’ experience working in the energy industry in Alberta. But it was when her son came home from Grade 9 without a keen understanding of current innovation in the energy industry that she decided there was an opportunity to do more. She was inspired to organize a student conference after emailing her son's teachers with industry innovation and technology insights every month between 2019 and 2021.

Dagmar immigrated with her parents as a toddler to Alberta, growing up in Drayton Valley on a sawmill. It’s where her love of trees began and still to this day, the forest and mountains is where Dagmar finds peace and clarity from the busy world of oil and gas. 

She earned a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Calgary - the first to graduate from university in her family - and obtained her CPA, Chartered Accountant designation in Calgary in 1995. Dagmar has worked in several accounting roles within the oil and gas, IT, and entrepreneurial companies prior to founding Ten Peaks in 2021.

Her focus with Ten Peaks is to engage, educate and inspire thousands of Alberta students and teachers with high-quality learning opportunities, elevating their insights and perspectives on the cross-collaboration between energy, our environment and climate. 

Dagmar lives in Red Deer, Alberta with her husband Darryl, and their sweet and feisty labradoodle hound dog, Cyder.
