Craig Kalvin provides effective financial leadership at a senior management level in a contract or project role where we will endeavor to not only get the numbers right, but tell you the story behind the numbers.
Craig is a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA), with executive level experience in a public company in Canada. Craig has worked with more than 50 clients of various sizes and across various industries over the last several years since starting CK One Solutions in late 2013.
Prior to starting this business, Craig worked nearly 3 years as the Chief Financial Officer of the Sherritt Coal group of companies (with annual revenues in excess of $1 billion and assets in excess of $1.5 billion) with a finance team of approximately 50 people that operated at a high level.
Prior to that, he also lead the Operational Effectiveness department within Sherritt Coal, where his very talented, multi-functional team focused on continuous improvement projects, cost saving initiatives, and process improvements across the organization. These experiences have prepared Craig to support business in good times and bad times, with a nice balance of financial expertise and operational understanding.
His top skills, and what he's most passionate about, include leadership, problem solving, relating to people, financial analysis, and process development.
His Birkman assessment shows him as off the charts “Numerical” and “Social Service” so he can be summed up as a numbers guy who really wants to make a difference! He believes being wired this way makes him a great asset to any organization in terms of providing expertise in strategic thinking, problem solving, adding value, and challenging people and organizations to be the best they can be.
It is very important to get the numbers right, but it is equally as important to help senior management and key decision makers understand what the numbers are telling them.
