Good morning everyone! A key objective of the Sidney Breakfast Club is to help aspiring business owners learn from the experiences of others engaged in similar entrepreneurial journeys. We’re proud to follow up with some of these speakers as their businesses grow and ultimately succeed. One such past SBC speaker is Peter Evans, CEO of CryoLogistics Refrigeration Technologies Ltd. A lot has happened since we last heard from Peter in May of 2018. Our February 13th SBC meeting allows us to get caught up and continue to follow with his successful business journey.
Peter started his adult life as a police officer and went on to serve 25 years with the RCMP in locations all across Canada including the far North. Following his retirement Peter went into a number of private sector leadership positions beginning with the Vancouver Airport Authority and including work with a national telecommunications company and an architectural and engineering consultancy. He launched CryoLogistics in 2011 and began collaborating with the University of Victoria Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. Since that time he has also engaged with Camosun College and from both of those esteemed local educational organizations has been able to leverage nine different Co-op students all of whom are studying to be mechanical engineers.
CryoLogistics Refrigeration Technologies Ltd. has succeeded in raising seed capital over the last several years and has established strong relationships with various government granting agencies. Somewhere in the midst of this Peter found time to complete a Master’s degree at Royal Roads University. He’s an Island born former policeman turned entrepreneur who is determined to make Victoria a centre of excellence for the Clean Technology Industry that will address and solve problems around the world.
Please join us on Thursday / February 13th / 7am and RSVP (firstname.lastname@example.org) only if you plan on attending. As always, the meeting is held at 7am on the 2nd Thursday of every month at the Victoria Flying Club Dakota Café (http://www.dakotacafesidney.com/).
