Having cultivated a leadership career spanning nearly 45 years across the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors, I take pride in motivating teams and helping results-driven leaders reach their highest personal and professional potential. I am a strong believer and advocate for the power that stems from effective collaboration, company-wide enthusiasm, and genuine connections among teams.
My journey commenced as a manager with HSBC Bank, where I learned the integral role of strong financial health in growing and sustaining a successful business. This experience positioned me for subsequent roles as the President of Moker Farm Products Ltd, a family business recognized for its business growth and exemplary customer service, and as the Revenue & Research Team Leader at the Saskatchewan Workers’ Compensation Board. In the latter role, I built and managed high-performing teams, consistently exceeding customer service targets and fostering relationships with the workers, employers, and the people of Saskatchewan.
In 2005, I accepted the position of CEO at Safe Saskatchewan Inc., a Canadian-based not-for-profit dedicated to eliminating unintentional injuries in the province. In this role, I was responsible for the collaborative development of comprehensive provincial injury-prevention strategies. I also influenced over 650 leaders to support the continuous improvement of healthy and safe workplaces and communities by signing the Saskatchewan Health & Safety Leadership Charter and committing to its principles.
Throughout my career, I have received consistent recognition for business development and customer service achievements. As a TEC Canada Chair, my vast experience and reputation for leading strategic decisions that inspire long-term growth empower my members to accelerate their development, bolster their organization’s financial health, and enhance the well-being and productivity of every employee.
On a personal note, my wife and I have two grown children, a grandson, and a furry friend. I find joy in gardening, yard work, and spending quality time with family and friends. Additionally, I have a passion for performing four-part acapella harmony in the Barbershop Style, and making a difference in the lives of others through the transformative power of music.
