Patrick Kwasnecha

Patrick graduated from NAIT with a Business Administration & Finance Diploma. After graduating from high school, Patrick went into trade school and began working as an Electrician. Throughout his time in the electrical field, Patrick worked in three different sectors of electrical, including industrial, commercial and residential.

Patrick enjoyed several years in the field and learned a lot; however, soon realized that he wanted to be able to utilize his knowledge and capabilities in a different manner – not just his hands! 

Patrick's decision to pursue a career in business and financial services was not easy, but he has not looked back since! Patrick is currently completing his Alberta Insurance Council Life License (LLQP) and is looking forward to working with new clients.

What Patrick does for you:

Patrick supports the advisor team and our clients in the implementation and ongoing monitoring of employee benefit plans including life and health plans, health spending accounts, and group retirement savings plans.
