MEET THE TEAM

Our team will be expanding shortly.

Simon

After skating competitively, attending York university and Loyalist College I found my way to VDTS. Since then I have enjoyed deciphering what the customer actually wants and needs and how to make that come about. After being with them since 2011, I’ve worked my way up to software development team lead where I have the chance to bring my crazier ideas to reality.

Jake

I graduated university as a Bachelor of Information Technology with a specialization in game design and entrepreneurship in early 2012 and am currently 30 years old. I am a programmer at VDTS working on some of its latest applications. When not working I am an avid gamer and enjoyer of movies. I also enjoy writing and being creative.

Palmer

I am a Christian, husband, father of 3, Lifelong learner and Jack of all trades. Dual citizen of US and Canada. Some of my interests include Camping, Carpentry, Dogs, Gardening, Judo, Movies, and Prime Rib. Some of my past and present rolls include, self-defense instructor, stay at home dad, nursing home chaplain, ordained officiant minister and cofounder of Quinte Skyhawks Football Club. My first real sale was at 11yrs old selling a car for my dad. I have been in sales or service positions for much of my working life. I enjoy meeting new people and strive to make all those I interact with to feel valued. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to reach and exceed your goals!

Kishor

I am responsible for maintaining and updating financial information for VDTS. I have been working in Finance/Administration area for over 13 years now. I am originally from Nepal, but Canada has been home for past 10 years and I have been a proud Canadian citizen for 5 years now. Outside of work, I like to travel and spend time with my daughter and wife. I am a big soccer fan and follow different leagues around the world.

Sam

Sam

I’m a recent graduate from St. Lawrence College’s computer programming and analysis course and the newest member of the software development team. It’s an exciting new opportunity for me, and I love to tackle new challenges. When I’m not writing code and solving problems, I might be playing console games, animating something, or practicing the piano.

Jillian

Jillian

I graduated in 2020 as an Environmental Technician, and am now the newest member of the VDTS team working alongside Palmer in sales and marketing! I’ve enjoyed every moment with VDTS thus far, and am looking forward to all the fun times and challenges to come! I’m a big fan of coffee shops, books, and the great outdoors! Outside of work you can find me hiking, kayaking, or going out on an adventure with my husband Matt.

Dave

My background includes many years experience in robotics and PLC programming. I’ve spent almost 20 years in technical roles in the hardwood industry. Currently I look after the herd of HMT’s for VDTS. I am married to Tina and spend most of my time figuring how to make things better for me and others.

Pat

I am the only non-technical person at VDTS. I enjoy interacting with our employees and our customers. I’m the go-to person who gets answers and results. Contact me. I would love to talk to you!

Dave

After 25 years as a GM in the IT sector, I started my own technology consulting firm. An engagement in 2002 introduced me to an enterprising software developer and led to Voice Recognition as an effective tool for many of the processes in the lumber business. I am married to and work and travel with Pat. As one customs official remarked, “it’s a beautiful thing”. We have 2 adult children and I enjoy reading and playing guitar in our local church music ministry.
