I am an industry-leading technology executive passionate about creating and leading effective teams to accomplish strategic goals. I lead Avantage operations and focus on team growth to effectively align operations with client goals, missions and values. As Chief Information Security Officer, I ensure we adhere to our security, compliance, and governance policies to guarantee client information remains secure and confidential.
Over my 30-year career I have delivered exceptional results to the organizations I work with. In addition to IT, I have worked in the logistics, entertainment, research, investment and forestry industries. I have serviced global organizations including Tibbett & Britten Group PLC, Safeway, International Forest Products, Great Canadian Gaming Corporation, and the Canadian Department of Defence.
Through industry experience and strong interpersonal skills, I can identify emerging challenges and effectively guide internal teams through conflicts before they arise. I communicate personal leadership to cultivate a healthy and productive workplace for all parties, and Avantage’s growth is a direct result of this collaborative culture.
Passionate about mentoring, I strive to help each team grow their individual and collective knowledge. By focusing on accountability and integrity, I empower employees as decision makers to foster deliberate growth.
When I am not working, I am an avid mountain biker and act as a board member for the Squamish Dirt Bike Association.
