Business in the Time of COVID-19 and Beyond
A Discussion on Saskatchewan from the New Normal to What’s on the Horizon.
On July 7, 2020, armed with public health guidelines and plenty of hand sanitizer, we gathered business leaders from various sectors across the province to discuss business in Saskatchewan—from the “new normal” to what lies ahead. Led by Wanda Hunchak, Executive Vice President of Westcap Mgt. Ltd., a local investment fund manager that, over the past three decades, has invested more than $1 billion into over 200 Saskatchewan companies through its diverse funds, including Golden Opportunities Fund and the Westcap MBO Private Equity Funds.
The group included Grant Kook, Westcap’s President, CEO and Founder and leaders from its portfolio of companies: Natasha Vandenhurk (Owner/CEO, Three Farmers Foods), Casey Collins (CEO, Prairie Meats), Garth MacDonald (CEO, G-Mac’s AgTeam), Blair Flavel, (President, Degelman Industries) and Rob Harasymchuk (Director of Operations, Maxie’s Excavating). Together, yet separated, they pondered the pandemic’s impact on business and what the future holds for the province’s entrepreneurial community.
