Hi all –
My name is Matt Mendes and I recently joined Whipcord as CFO after spending over a decade working in the corporate world. I'm really excited to take the lessons I've learned from that period of work life to help grow the Whipcord business. Although, I've already promised to stay away from anything that blinks - I'm good with numbers, but less so with technology.
I grew up something of a gypsy having lived in Alberta, British Columbia, Quebec, Texas, Indonesia and Australia. Through it all though, Calgary was always home. I'm lucky to get to spend my time with my wonderful wife Susan and our three kids; Maya, Hunter and Madeline. We're travellers and outdoor enthusiasts, spending our weekends skiing, biking and camping throughout Alberta, BC and beyond!
I'm hoping to influence the strategic direction of Whipcord and ensure that we're appropriately financed for the various undertakings we explore. I'm also excited and thankful to be part of such a fun and dynamic team and I'm looking forward to doing big things here at Whipcord!
