Meet The Team: Our Exceptional Engineers

Taking a look at our team of engineers, you could easily mistake this bright crew for a group of students. But proving the adage that age has no bearing on one’s success, Raven Supply’s tight team of talented engineers may be young, but offer the right combination of experience and knowledge to stand out as industry leaders.

Bennett Lee is an example of rising talent that has become an invaluable part of our team.  Bennett Lee came to our company as a coop student in 2007 and then joined our team full time in 2008 after graduating from UBC’s Bachelor of Commerce program.  Initially working with our clients as a Venting Estimator, Bennett quickly graduated to VP of Venting Sales. Nowadays, Bennett is the one training our incoming co-op students as well as our entire team on the latest and greatest in venting products.

Linna Luu stepped into her role as an Inside Sales Engineer in 2016 after completing her Chemical Engineering degree at the University of Alberta. Linna joined the team at the perfect time, just as we needed a capable new individual to round out our Venting Department. Since then she’s excelled in a series of roles at Raven Supply, demonstrating exceptional technical abilities and close attention to the important small details. Currently, in the essential position of Project Engineer, Linna is extremely valuable to our team and to our customers, offering adaptations for each project’s unique needs flawlessly and with ease.

Merinda Widmer also comes to us from the University of Alberta’s Chemical Engineering program. The most recent addition to our Engineering Team, Merinda joined us in 2018 as an Inside Sales Engineer. First hired to support the needs of our many venting customers, Merinda had proven herself to be a valuable all-around team member. Now her responsibilities extend to design projects, tanks, and other parts. This quick learner with a keen eye for detail also brings a lovely outgoing personality. We know Merinda is destined for great things, and we can’t wait to see what her future here at Raven Supply holds.

Truly, Raven Supply wouldn’t be the company it is today without these bright and ambitious individuals. A big THANKS to our Engineering Team- we couldn’t do it without you!

All In A Day’s Work: Fun, Laughter, and Friendly Competition at TBC Go Karts

Like any crew of friends, the tight knit team here at Raven Supply enjoys trying out new things together.

We often get together to share meals for birthday and holidays. But our most recent excursion took us a bit further out of our comfort zone.

Switching our office chairs for the driver’s seat at TBC Go Karts in Richmond, we set out together for a day of relaxing and mostly safe fun. But we soon discovered another thing we have in common- a competitive streak that comes out alongside the urge to break speed records on the Go Kart track!

We were joined on this adventure by Tony Pregal from T’N’T’ Energy Systems. Tony has earned himself an honourary spot on our team, helping us out on a daily basis. We appreciate the hard work he’s put in performing the majority of our boiler start-ups, and were thrilled he could join us for a fun afternoon out. 

After two hours showing off our skills on the track, we were sore, tired, and covered in soot. We took a break to regain our strength trackside for some pizza before our final exciting race. Tony walked away in first place, cashing in on the hours he’s put behind the wheel in his BMW at Mission Raceways, with Nic and Merinda squeezing in at a close second and third in the final lap. 

All in all, the day included some pretty dramatic drifts, a few tires left on the sidelines, and tons of laughter. Our entire team enjoyed the experience, and can’t wait for our next big adventure.The Team

Here at Raven Supply, our team has doubled from 4 to 8 in the past five years. As we continue to grow, we know just how important it is to find memorable ways to bond as a team, get to know one another, and make our office a place people look forward to coming to each day.

We hope that our happiness and pride in our workplace team is something our customers enjoy too, and always welcome you to stop by and say hello when you’re in the neighbourhood!
