Throughout my illustrious business career, I have gained a wealth of experience in diverse sectors. From managing manufacturing companies and beauty wholesale distribution to livestock production and agricultural policy, I’ve had the opportunity to apply my skills and expertise to a wide range of industries.
One of my roles was chairing the Animal Health Research Trust Fund on behalf of the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association. This position sharpened my abilities in fund management and gave me a deeper understanding of the animal health sector. Additionally, I took the helm as the leader of the formation committee for the International Centre for Agricultural Science and Technology, demonstrating my dedication to technological advancements in agriculture and my aptitude for bringing together leading minds in the field.
For a decade, I operated a business consulting firm, lending my knowledge to numerous organizations and guiding them toward success. More recently, I helped in the creation of a leading Software as a Service (SaaS) company. This company stands at the forefront of providing services to health, agriculture, and consumer protection regulatory organizations across North America, a testament to my ability to recognize and cater to the specific needs of different industries.
My management expertise spans strategic planning, marketing, and financing. I have led successful businesses across Canada, from British Columbia to Saskatchewan, and even extended my reach to the United States. The breadth and depth of my experience is reflected in the millions of dollars in new revenue I have developed through locating, commercializing, and financing new technologies and products for businesses and manufacturers.
Outside of my direct business engagements, I have had the privilege of sharing my knowledge and experiences as a guest lecturer at several universities. Additionally, I have been a keynote speaker at various business seminars across the country, sharing my insights and strategies to inspire and guide fellow entrepreneurs and business enthusiasts.
Across all endeavors, my underlying goal has been to create and foster growth, whether through strategic planning, financial management, or the introduction of innovative technologies. With a broad yet deeply specialized knowledge base, I continue to contribute to the world of business, ever eager to explore new opportunities and challenges.
