Landon is truly a West Coast kind of guy, a straight-talking Excel buff whose favourite way to relax involves tackling back-country trails in his 4×4 with wife and four kids in tow while admiring the scenery.
After stints leading the A/P team and as a Financial Analyst in our Vancouver business unit, Landon settled in as Finance Leader and has become engrossed in the world of Lean Accounting.
He’s a firm believer that everyone in Finance should get themselves a strong foundation in operations, and that everyone in operations should know how to read a profit and loss statement and a balance sheet.
Landon began working at Creation in 2003 and immediately became our “Sandalman”, so named for the one or two times each year he deigns to wear shoes and socks.
What Drives You?: Autonomy, flexibility, challenge, and change.
Best Part of the Job: Taking things apart enough so that I can repair or restructure them.
Best Book Ever: The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien – it just consumed my imagination and provided the revelation that anyone can achieve their own kind of greatness…with some nudging from knowing elders. I like to remind my kids of that part.
Can’t Live Without: Watching the sun come up over the ridge across the lake at our favourite place to camp. Favourite Quote: “We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” ~George Bernard Shaw
