Darren has a fire for digging in and recognizing the true value drivers of a business. Having grown up in an entrepreneurial family, he was fortunate to have discovered his purpose at a young age. Over the past 10 years, he has spent a lot of time getting to know Calgarian entrepreneurs. Darren started in banking and finance during the financial crises where he worked in sales, credit and leveraged finance. Darren gained valuable experience at a Management Consulting firm where he helped local entrepreneurs navigate the changes that falling oil prices had on the local economy.
Besides business, Darren is passionate about travel, having been to over 30 countries. What travel has taught him is perspective and curiosity; traits he feels are relevant in both his personal and professional life. He applies perspective and curiosity when conducting research, performing financial analyses, negotiating and when trying to understand the challenges his clients face.
Darren earned a Bachelor of Commerce in Entrepreneurship, completed the Canadian Securities Course, is a qualified Chartered Professional Accountant and is currently pursuing his Chartered Business Valuator (CBV) designation. When he’s not ‘knee deep’ in business, he loves spending time with his family and friends and stopping pucks as a goaltender in hockey.
