Vik is the guy in the office who knows a thing or two about most topics and is able to jump into any conversation. A cheerful and innovative ideas man who knows how to get a project moving, Vik likes to stay busy and has been that way since his university days when he had a different club meeting every day of the week. These days he’s busy heading up F-Media, but gets the itch to travel every so often and is always excited to tick another country off the list.
Justin’s mind is always at work trying to figure out why things work the way they do and keeps everyone organized with a multitude of spreadsheets.

Justin won the HSBC Scholarship in Business, graduated with distinction, took second place at the JDC West International Business case competition and has lived in both Germany and Hong Kong.

His management degree saw him graduate with great distinction in marketing while also becoming a semi-finalist in Canada’s Next Top Ad Exec.

Ross is the type of person who can figure out how to do anything—and do it quite well, though he’d never say so himself.

He self-published an e-book of his work in 2015.
