University of New Brunswick
Ken has a wide range of business experience ranging from teaching to R&D to starting a business.
He started his journey at the University of Toronto finishing a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Mathematics followed by a Bachelor of Education concentrating on Science and Mathematics. Later Ken went back to school at the University of Calgary to gain his MBA, and then finished his Masters of Education from Simon Fraser University, concentrating on Distance Education and E-Learning.
Other than all this work getting educated, one of his biggest successes (and likely challenges) was building LeanStream Inc. into a 50 person industry leader in innovative learning solutions over a seven year span and then selling it in 2005. From LearnStream Ken has moved on to UNB as the Director of the Centre for Enhanced Teaching and Learning, where he uses his unique skills combining teaching and innovation to increase student engagement and bring UNB’s teaching strategies into the 21st century.
Ken also works for himself as a consultant at Reimer Consulting Group providing senior level business consulting services to early stage companies looking to grow.
Ken is a constant presence in the Fredericton business community, volunteering time to help better the local business environment and helping Fredericton become a hub of successful start up companies.
He has sat on the Board of Directors of several enterprises, including LearnNB, the national board for CANARIE and for Family Life Canada and sat on the advisory board for the NRC Institute for Information Technology. He has also won awards and recognition across the country and on the North American stage over the years.
Ken lives in Fredericton with his wife and family.
