Born and raised on a farm in Saskatchewan, I now live in Vancouver, British Columbia with my wife and two kids, (4 yr old girl and 8 yr old boy). I have spent over 15 years operating businesses internationally in the EU, US, Canada, South Asia and China, and raising over $25M in equity for these companies. As a seasoned innovator, I have built complex satellite communications networks across the world, launched several brands into large retailers like Best Buy and Amazon among others and worked with my engineering teams to design and deliver novel high precision products in metals, plastics, textiles and glass at scale, and directed two documentary films about subjects I was passionate about along the way. With previous exposure directing several M&A deals, I am excited to progress my entrepreneurial journey further through acquisition and building new relationships.
- Critical Thinking
- Risk Management
I am looking to acquire a business located in Western Canada or the Pacific Northwest US.
My search is focused on businesses with growth opportunities driven by long term de-coupling of supply chains, and the energy/efficiency transition. I am interested in companies that have a track-record of steady profits, but are looking to level up the operational and strategic aspects of the business to set the stage for further growth.
Given my extensive operational experience across technology, manufacturing, and consumer products, I will continue to build the company’s legacy by capitalizing on industry opportunities and fostering a platform for consistent growth, both in the numbers and in the team.
Competing in a range of regulatory environments has helped me understand the complexities of running any business and ultimately, how to get things done. I aim to utilise effective leadership, strategic thinking and calculated risk-taking to unlock a company’s potential.
