A Fireside Chat with Tech Legend Ken Spencer

Later this Month the Vancouver Enterprise Forum is chatting with local tech legend Ken Spencer as part of their “Technology Legends” series.

After holding a senior executive role in many BC technology companies such as MacDonald Detwiller and Associates and Glenayre, Ken and his partner Dan Gelbart branched out on their own to found Creo Products. Over the next 20 years, they grew the company into BC’s largest technology company with 4,000 employees and revenues of nearly $1 billion, took the company public and eventually sold the company to Kodak in 2005.

Laurie Wallace, past co-founder of Datum Telegraphic and FlyOver Entertainment and current chair of Constructive Media and Vivity Labs will moderate the fireside chat. Wallace and Spencer will talk about Spencer’s drive to co-found Creo Products, his motivation for wanting to run his “own” company, and the keys to growing Creo into BC’s largest technology company.

This VEF event takes place on Tuesday, April 28th at the Vancity Theatre. Pre-register online if you’re interested in attending.
