Christopher Steeves

Business Analyst
(403) 934-8888 ext 2

As a Business Analyst, Christopher works with potential and current small business clients by helping with the creation and review of business plans. He also meets with owners to discuss their business, the successes and challenges they are facing and coaches them along the way. Christopher oversees loan applications in hopes of securing funds for the client, so that they can realize their dream.

Christopher has grown up around entrepreneurship and people who owned their own business.  In fact, he and each of his brothers have their own small business. However, his passion for it blossomed in his final year in university through a practicum based class.  Since then he has been involved in economic development and entrepreneurship. Today, he is thrilled to be working in a role that allows him to help people realize their dreams and (hopefully) be successful.

Wendy Gerbrandt

Community Economic Development (CED) Officer
(403) 934-8888 ext 3

Wendy’s educational background is in Business Administration Marketing and Community Economic Development where she holds a diploma, as well as having her Community Economic Development Certificate and courses in strategic planning. She has over 10 years work experience in the non-profit industry where she focused on committee, community and business development. She really enjoys the agricultural sector as it's close to her family roots and she also has a passion for youth entrepreneurship.

Wendy enjoys spending time with family and friends the most. She enjoys activities such as camping, hiking, photography and music! Her favourite thing to do is spend time near the water at their lake lot in Saskatchewan (her home province). If she is not at the lake, you can also find her spending much of her time in her car around rural Alberta taking in the sights and local food while listening to her favourite music. She loves classic rock music - she just might be the biggest 80's music fan!
