As part of our “Technology Legends” theme, the VEF is pleased to present a fireside chat with local legend Ken Spencer. 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. He and Ken will talk about Ken’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.
