Management Team

As one of Saskatchewan’s largest venture capital and private equity managers, our team has a proven track record – not only in building long-term growth for investors, but also for job creation. Our team is leading the way to a stronger Saskatchewan by focusing on community goals.

The SaskWorks management team is led by President, Randy Beattie; Chief Executive Officer, Rob Duguid; Vice President, Chris Selness; Chief Financial Officer, Mike Merth; and Chief Investment Officer, Jeff Linner.

PFM Capital Inc., the manager of SaskWorks, also manages Apex Investment Fund, Prairie Ventures Limited Partnership, Top Soil, and the Saskatchewan Entrepreneurial Fund. This breadth of activity means the managers at SaskWorks Venture Fund have an unparalleled ability to engage in larger, late stage organizations that carry a lower degree of risk. This also allows us to effectively participate in follow-on investment activity as our investee companies succeed and grow. Just as we view effective management teams as a key success factor in our investee companies, we also believe that our own management team is the strongest in Western Canada.

You’ve seen the indicators of success. Now let’s meet the team of dedicated professionals that makes SaskWorks Venture Fund work.
