Born and educated in Western Canada, Don has degrees from the University of British Columbia in Economics and Business Administration. A lifelong sportsman, he still enjoys Masters Rugby as well as snow and water skiing, tennis, golf and recreational flying.

Seven years of Marketing and Brand Management assignments with General Foods, Limited launched his business career. Don was then recruited to a multi-national marketing and management consulting firm, Ronalds-Reynolds Ltd., where he rose to the position of Director, Sr. Vice President, General Manager, Western Canada. In 1994, Don established a Management Consulting Firm, Westrend Communications, Inc., specializing in Structural and Organizational Consulting, addressing the dramatic market growth opportunities (and consequences) of mergers and acquisitions. Human Capital management through these frequently traumatic engagements became a core criterion for a successful client result.

The firm selected and became certified in The Birkman Method to better manage project outcomes. A close relationship with Birkman developed. Ultimately, after an extensive training and qualification process, Don accepted the role of Global Business Development Director and Learning Partner with Birkman International, Inc. Over the last 18 years, Don has directed his focus within Birkman International, Inc., in supporting the introduction, training, and implementation of the Birkman Method into major, multi-national management consulting firms, selected regional consulting firms, and corporate multi-nationals and their offices around North America, Europe, Latin America and Asia/Pacific.

Expertise in the specific assessment applications of competency mapping, behavioral and motivational profiles, executive coaching, teambuilding, and selection are now the core business focus. Don conducts a majority of Birkman International’s offshore/teleconference Consultant Training in this capacity.
