Meet Team Encom

Our company is a lot more than just great products.
Learn a little about the people behind the scenes that make everything work.

Peter

President

Working quietly and unassumingly behind the scenes, Peter directs day to day operations for Encom and ensures the company operates with the highest levels of customer service and integrity. His calm, easy-going manner and open-door philosophy foster a work environment where everyone is engaged and encouraged to thrive and be their best.

A proud father and family man, Peter’s expertise covers more than just the financials of the company. Outside of work he is a capable do-it-yourselfer having completed numerous renovation projects around his home and says that very few people know that building and design are his top hidden talents.

Outside of work, I really enjoy…
renovation projects.

One thing I am most proud of is…
my family.

If I didn’t live in Calgary, I would want to live in…
Tortola in the British Virgin Islands.

My favorite vacation destination is…
anywhere warm on the deck of a sailboat.

If I could be someone else, I would be…
no one else, I like me!.

Travis

Currently working towards his Certified Wireless Specialist certification, Travis believes in tackling and solving business challenges with integrity, hard work, and a customer-centric, competitively urgent approach.

Brendan

Traffic Channel Manager

Brendan is our go-to guy for product technical information and support. He started out in production where he directed and supervised product assembly and testing, and then quickly moved up to his current role. Now our distribution partners benefit from his in-depth product knowledge and keen attention to detail when he interacts with them.

Growing up in Ontario, he moved to Calgary for its proximity to the Rocky Mountains. An avid mountain biker, he loves the variety of outdoor trails and wilderness activities the countryside has to offer year-round, and can often be heard planning his next two-wheeled adrenaline rush adventure.

Outside of work, I really enjoy…
mountain biking, skiing, and a clear lake.

Mal

Communications Specialist

Checked out our website recently? Or seen our recent posts or tweets on your Linkedin or Twitter feed? That’s the work of Mal, our Communications Specialist (aka Technical Writer, Graphic Designer, Webmaster, Copyeditor, Proofreader, Content Developer, etc.)

Mal has worn many ‘hats’ in his career but says that his role with Encom now is his most engaging and most fulfilling. “I’ve had stints in airline customer service, call centers, tech support, real estate and automotive sales, and I’ve even owned a consulting firm in Hawaii at one point. But I enjoy my work at Encom the most because of the creative aspect of it. I collaborate with various people within the team and I get to learn and use creative applications to produce various types of marketing and communications material, as well as design and manage the company website…it’s fun!”

Outside of work, I really enjoy…
spending time with my family, hiking, sightseeing, or chilling out at home by
watching documentaries or informative videos.

singing.

My favorite vacation destination is…
Hawaii.

a professional basketball player.

my relationship with my wife and my two very special daughters.

Tannis

Administrative Assistant

If you’ve ever called Encom Customer Service and heard a pleasant reassuring voice at the other end, or perhaps read that detailed response email, then you’ve interacted with Tannis (or Tan for short).

Apart from her daily tasks of responding to incoming calls and making sure accounts receivables and payables are all tracked, she also keeps on top of our inventory and ensures all sales orders are processed and shipped promptly to clients.  She does all this while always being pleasant and ready for short friendly chats as you pass by her desk. She states, “I make sure that every person I speak to is happier after I’ve spoken to them, whether the interaction is over the phone, by email or in person. I ensure that I’ve attended to all my team members’ requests throughout the day.

Outside of work, I really enjoy…
camping and being outdoors.

Very few people know that I am very good at…

having been chosen as the artist for a live painting night at a brewery.

fox.
