Executive


Keith Jeannot, President & CEO
Jeannot, Keith--005

Andrew Clarke, Vice President – Information Technology
Having lived across Canada (in Labrador City, Halifax, Quebec City, Toronto, Ottawa, now Regina- to be exact), Andrew’s had the opportunity to work with some of Canada’s most well-known and successful companies. He prides himself on finding innovative ways of applying technology strategy and IT operations to deliver on business objectives. With a customer-first focus, he brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience in enterprise technology, digital strategy, marketing and communications.
After hours he loves to spend time with family, travel and explore all that Regina has to offer. His obsession, if you want to call it that, is his love for cycling. Whether it’s spending hours shopping for the latest parts or accessories, training or competing, it’s his passion for physical activity, need for speed and competitive nature that keeps him coming back.

Kristian Wells, CFO & Vice President Administration
Wells, Kristian--003Kristian is most definitely not your average finance guy. Not only is he a well-rounded financial analyst, he also uses his sense of humour to make it interesting, simple and sometimes even memorable!
