“My career as an entrepreneur in both telecommunications and marketing has provided me with a wealth of experience taking start-ups to enterprise level organizations. A co-founder of Fibernetics, one of the largest telecom companies in the country with points of presence coast-to-coast, supports hundreds of thousands of Canadians with their telecommunications needs. My current role is President of Fibernetics, where I oversee an international team of telecom professionals principally through our residential brand, Worldline and our business services division, NEWT. I mentor Fibernetics Ventures Inc. and its associated companies: Fongo, Cloud at Cost, Rack & Data and Plasticity. My journey continues with a focus on improving culture with the “I’m in!” initiative. Great companies depend upon great culture to survive and thrive. I have the vision to not only realize a new culture was needed at Fibernetics but constructed the plan, the vision of what it should look like, its goals and its execution. I am passionate about culture in companies and what makes a great company become incredible. I live it every day and am completely committed to this goal. The team we’ve developed at our Cambridge, Ontario head office work cohesively with the common goal of advancing Fibernetics and its group of companies. They are “in” and I am motivated to bring what’s working for us to other organizations. As a public speaker, I work with companies both large and small focusing on increasing workplace happiness and employee engagement through improving their culture. An entrepreneurship mentor with our own Fibernetics Ventures and with Communitech, I help guide the next generation of business leaders to produce world changing products and services to market.
