Recently retired, I live at Moose Mountain Provincial Park. Running, biking, snowshoeing, skiing, swimming, kayaking, snowmobiling, golfing, hiking and several other activities are some
of my pastimes. I have lived in northwest Saskatchewan, central Saskatchewan and now for over 30 years in south east Saskatchewan and can honestly say this area has it all!

SE Saskatchewan has withstood economic downturns much better than other areas of Saskatchewan or Canada or even the rest of North America and that’s something for all of us to
be proud of. The people here just seem to be driven to succeed no matter what is thrown their way. Being part of an organization that can keep small communities alive and thriving is a rewarding
experience. The ability to play a small role in helping people succeed in their dreams of owning and operating or expanding a small business is not something to take lightly.

Having lived in rural Saskatchewan my entire life I understand the challenges that entrepreneurs face in accessing the funding and help they require to move forward with new ventures. Having a very
diverse background of ownership in several small businesses plus some management positions in others, I look forward to using my past experiences in any way possible to work with the
experienced team at Community Futures Sunrise.

Welcome to CF Sunrise David - we are looking forward to the value your diverse background brings!
