My name is Kam and when I was five years old, I wanted to be an astronaut. By the time I was six years old, I realized I had a better chance of designing spaceships than actually flying them. So, I decided to become an aerospace engineer. One of my deep, dark secrets is that I grew up in Hamilton, Ontario (that’s me standing in front of the first Tim Hortons in Hamilton). It wasn’t until I moved to Toronto that I was able to realize my educational ambitions.
Hi all –
My name is Matt Mendes and I recently joined Whipcord as CFO after spending over a decade working in the corporate world.
Chris here – I was born and raised in Calgary, living there until I left to attend the University of Lethbridge, where I’m currently completing my Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science.
Hi there! My name is Keegan and I recently joined the Whipcord team as a Software Developer. My educational background is in physics, math and computer science while my knowledge of software development is largely self-taught (shout out to Google!).
Hi, I’m Matt Coutts, the Program Manager, Agriculture at Whipcord. I grew up in Kindersley, SK working on my family’s farm and am excited to continue my career in agriculture with Whipcord.
Hey! My name is Jessie Carpenter and I’m here to help Karla crunch the numbers as the newest addition to the Accounting Team; I’m closing in on my third month at Whipcord and am so happy to be here. I like to work hard while having fun and Whipcord has given me the ideal work/life balance to achieve that.
Hi, my name is Marianne Loose and I joined the Whipcord team in November 2018. I was born and raised in a small town of 302 people (301 since I moved), nestled in the foothills of Alberta’s Rocky Mountains. Glenwood is not only known as the “cheese town” for its cheese factory and museum, but also for its rich agricultural community. After graduating from high school, I moved to Calgary and it has been home for me ever since.
Hello everyone! My name is Norm Nelson, I joined the Whipcord team as a System Administrator back in July of 2018. I was born and raised in the windy city of Lethbridge, but as someone who isn't a fan of the wind I spent much of my childhood playing around with computers. Since I was always breaking something by pushing each system to it limits, it was a great way to get practical "unintended" IT experience as a kid.
Nobody at Whipcord would admit publicly that I was hired on my name alone, but Whipcord needed a System Administrator, and upsetting the longstanding Canadian business convention of stabling at least one Dave or David in the company at all times was out of the question. With a name like David Burgess, I was a shoo-in.
Hey everyone! My name is Wilson Acton and I joined the Whipcord team in May. I’m originally from the “Lord’s Rectangle” – Saskatchewan, and grew up driving a tractor under the large prairie skies on a farm south of Moose Jaw.
