Featuring JoeAnne Hardy, President of WBM Technologies
At WBM, JoeAnne is honored to lead an incredible team of over 315 people across Western Canada implementing technology solutions for some of Canada’s largest and most progressive private and public sector organizations . Because she works in the tech industry, it might be hard to imagine that some of her most valued skills were learned on a ranch in South West Saskatchewan, but it’s true. Growing up on an acreage near Maple Creek watching her parents, her siblings and her friends and neighbors taught her so many lessons about the importance of commitment, passion and doing what you love with people you love. It’s these lessons that still inspire her in the work she does everyday. It also contributed to making her a serious morning person and a pretty good horseback rider!
JoeAnne is honored to have been recognized by CDN Magazine as one of the top 10 women in IT in Canada. She also serves on the Board of Directors for SaskTel, Saskatchewan Blue Cross and the NSBA, Saskatoon’s business association.
She splits her time during the week between Vancouver, Calgary, Regina, Saskatoon and Winnipeg. On all her travels, she always likes to find new places to run and spend time outside…even in the winter! JoeAnne is blessed to have a wonderful family and loves nothing more than spending time her husband Bob, her awesome stepkids Lauren and Matt and her grandson Dominic (who is the apple of her eye).
