Trusted Saskatoon Account Manager
Having lived in many towns and cities across Saskatchewan, Carman knew there was no better place to live and raise a family than Saskatoon. After graduating from the U of S with a B.A. and a B.Comm. he spent over 22 years as a professional fundraiser helping schools and non-profits raise much needed funds, and teaching thousands of students to set goals and be the best versions of themselves. When this career took him and his family to Alberta for 11 years he always knew he would be back. As part of his career journey, Carman also spent time as an account manager for a few other companies in Saskatoon, refining his skills in supporting and servicing local business owners.
At an early age, Carman's parents taught him about the values of hard work, honesty and integrity, and it's these traits he brings to the TrustedSaskatoon.com team. He's dedicated to the success and support of his local Trusted partners as he is also an entrepreneur and knows the ups and downs of being a business owner. He has a genuine love for people and is passionate about helping others achieve their dreams and goals. Carman likes to say his middle name is 'Service", and believes that is his secret for success.
For 26 years Carman has been married to his wife Deanne, who enjoys working at Ronald McDonald House, and together are raising 3 wonderful teenagers. He enjoys coaching, playing sports and volunteering, and is a true believer in lifelong learning. But what he loves most of all is spending quality time with family and friends.
Michele runs the accounts department like a well-oiled machine! She is focused on efficiencies and quality in all she does. With decades of bookkeeping and construction experience, she is an asset to the Trusted team. In Michele’s spare time you will find her at the lake, in Mexico or enjoying the company of her many friends and family members.
