According to Preston Fay, Technekes’ chief marketing officer and principal, “I’ve known Joan a long time. She’s a born marketer who knows Canadian agriculture. She knows our business, and she flat-out knows how to get things done. And aside from all of that, she’s just a lot of fun to work with.”
In addition to her new role at Technekes, Joan also advises Powernoodle, a software company that creates and runs online meetings and brainstorming sessions. According to their website, “Joan Knowlton has built a reputation for repeatedly moving from brilliant idea to successful outcome. She’s firmly grounded, with a rare combination of common sense, creative problem solving, technological savvy and a sixth sense for opportunity. While she’s someone we wouldn’t want to go up against in a poker game, Joan brings just the kind of experience we need in a strategic advisor.”
Besides, Joan’s also the perfect person to help us Southerners understand the difference between a hockey puck and a really, really stale sausage biscuit.
Welcome aboard, Joan. Or perhaps, bienvenue à Technekes!
