Business Systems Leader and Chief Architect
Darryl’s business card says he’s the Business Systems Leader & Chief Architect, which really means that he spends his days building, analyzing, and generally thinking about business systems and scalability.
“The cool stuff”, in other words.
From a little town outside of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Darryl looks back fondly at his time with the 4-H Horse Club. Though he’s a long-time Vancouver resident, we suspect that his early horse-riding days likely equipped him with the agility, balance and strength so essential to designing effective business systems. (And he was one heck of a barrel-racer).
Darryl found his way to Creation fresh out of university, in the company’s formative years. He strums a mean guitar and has been known to make the odd appearance at open mic night.
