Jared is a graduate of NAIT (Northern Alberta Institute of Technology), where he earned a diploma in Computer Systems Technology. After several years working in the computer industry, Jared was lured back to NAIT; however, this time as a teacher!
In 2004, Jared joined Navigate Financial Group Ltd. and is the Manager of Edmonton and the surrounding area. Jared’s great personality and tremendous dedication, along with his ability to provide that exclusive customer care that is known to all of Navigate’s clients, makes Jared a valuable member of the Navigate team.
The skill sets Jared cultivated while at NAIT have proven invaluable to our clients. During his teaching tenure, he developed the ability to really listen so that he readily comprehends what clients are saying. This allows him to effectively determine their needs. Once Jared knows what the client really wants, he can then communicate effectively to educate them on the options available and together, as a team, they can choose the best course of action.
It’s easy to understand why the members of Navigate work well as a team, as they have all participated in competitive team sports. Jared is no exception, as when he was in his late teens, he played for the Canadian National Rugby team. He was one of the youngest players in the group at that time, and was even short listed as one of the top 30 players in Canada! He then went on to play with the Edmonton Super League team and even served as captain of their squad for several years. Now that he is a devoted family man, he still plays on a first division rugby team in Edmonton while also finding the time to coach his daughter’s basketball team.
Jared’s success at sports is the result of his drive, devotion and determination, qualities that he also channels into his business endeavors at Navigate. Due to his tremendous effort, the Edmonton office continues to build upon a well established base of diverse companies.
