While I am new to the organization I believe I could bring a unique perspective/background and contribute to growing the organization's reach and network. As a young professional, I currently work for an Independent petroleum wholesale marketer in Saskatoon, in the capacity of Operations Manager. Servicing a diverse customer base from residential to retail, to Saskatchewan's largest commercial consumers, my role primarily revolves around project development and customer relations. Prior to beginning this role earlier this year, I spent four years studying and working in Montreal. Here, I participated in a diversity of roles including; interning in a cognitive neuroscience lad, volunteering an international human rights NGO, organizing annual poppy campaigns, and representing global youth UN: ECOSOC. If elected my goal would be to drive membership growth through expanding marketing strategies and creating new event concepts.
As the Business Development Director at Ideas Inc, I have worked closely with emerging small businesses & entrepreneurs over the previous five years. My experience managing a business incubator has provided me with an abundance of insight into a variety of business industries & helped me craft a diverse set of business skills. Specifically, my previous participation on the Start Up Saskatoon board, my digital marketing certification & prior event planning experience will contribute well to the SYPE board committees. As a business professional born and raised in Saskatoon, I look forward to bringing fresh ideas to the table & making 2020 SYPE’s most kick ass year to date!
Chris Molenaar's story is an inspiration to those who know him well. Humble beginnings bring gratitude, poise, and patience your dealings with him. With your growing business or growing family, success isn't always a straight line. He keeps things calm but never quiet; settled but still exciting. Helping you stay well informed, well connected, and well-to-do!' Having me as a member of the sype board will help me bring more entrepreneurs to the organization, and grow the sype network in Saskatoon. With my sales, prospecting, and networking experience and my social media presence I feel confident in helping sype continue to grow and thrive in our community.
