Meet the Founders
CEO & Co-founder
Chad originally carved out a career path in law enforcement, studying Criminology at Mount Royal University in Calgary, Alberta, but quickly discovered he had the entrepreneurial bug. Chad saw an opportunity in the construction industry and acted on it, which lead him to the ownership and operation of a concrete company for several years. After a successful run in the concrete business, he utilized his knowledge of the business by taking on the role of project manager for a Calgary custom home builder.
Chad's blue collar beginnings has him fired up about strengthening local economies by empowering everyday hard working people to keep more money in their pockets (where it belongs) and less in the hands of "big business."
Chad is dedicated to developing the best online user experience, and scaling the technology so that everyone has the opportunity to use the unique online platform. He believes strongly that technology should be leveraged to not only connect people online, but more importantly offline, allowing real people to have real meaningful experiences. With Wheel Estate he hopes to accomplish just that.
Fun Fact: Chad is very competitive and hates losing, to date his son has never beaten him at mini sticks.
COO & Co-founder
Born and raised in Calgary, her passion is family. Her father was her mentor, and from him she learned patience, business acumen, how to be a great judge of character and to always be true to herself. To top it off her husband is her business partner, so it’s only natural that family has a powerful influence on her vision, decisions, and aspirations for Wheel Estate. Cherie discovered her entrepreneurial spirit at an early age, always thinking of new ideas and always challenging the status quo. With the rise of the Collaberative Economy, Cherie plans to share Wheel Estate with those too looking to challenge the traditional way of doing things. Cherie's vision for Wheel Estate is to continually strengthen and empower "our community" with values that embrace openness, humanness, and connectedness, where people can create their own opportunities, discover new connections, and create lasting memories. For over 14 years she held various positions within the oil and gas industry and has worked on a number of teams throughout the Province of Alberta.
Fun Fact: Although communication is one of Cheries' strong suits, cliche phrases are not.
A few examples are: "If you give him a meter he will take five miles" - "Here we go..........hang on to your pants" - "I get it now, they have to get back to the future, because they are in the past......wait what?"
