Isaac finds little time for hobbies outside of his cherished time with his wife and kids. When there is opportunity, he enjoys a jam session with his brothers or playing squash with office colleagues.
Claudia Lafreniere, Logistics Administrator
Claudia's story with our company began right after her high school graduation. Her ambition, curiosity, and desire to learn made her an ideal candidate for our dynamic team. For three years running, she championed our company's slo-pitch team, fostering teamwork and camaraderie. As we continue to evolve and thrive, Claudia remains a vital part of our journey, and we're excited to see how her future with us unfolds. But her journey with us isn't just about her professional growth. She's also been busy adding to her family during her time with us, with an upcoming wedding and baby on the way.

Naden Parkin, Sales & Business Development
Naden joined WMI in 2021. Prior to WMI he worked in the Oil and Gas Industry for 15 years, then moved to BC to sell steel and drilling fluids in the Mineral and Geotechnical Drilling Industry, finding success in his first sales role. He joined WMI as Sales and Business Development after a series of what cannot be called coincidences. He has since spearheaded our Mineral and Industrial expansion, growing the company with new offerings and clientele. A new recruit to the company softball team, Naden is a published author, board game creator and hunter. Married a decade, he and Angela enjoy time with their 3 children while caring for their hobby farm and their two cows, sheep, rabbits, poultry, dogs and a clowder of cats. He enjoys his sawmill, a large vegetable garden, playing guitar and writing songs, learning violin, coaching soccer, playing drop-in hockey, squash and keeping his golf game under triple digits. Naden loves his cast iron, curing and preserving as well as his smoker… toss a couple beers his way and you got yourself a BBQ.
Devin Gale, Sales
Devin joined Wyatt Marketing Inc in 2020 as the youngest member of the sales team, eager to prove himself and quick to find his stride. Coming to the team shortly after high school, Devin's lack of formal sales experience proved to be an asset as he was easily molded and excelled with WMI's non traditional model of doing business. When he's not spending time with his love Hope and dog Mocha, you'll find him at board game nights with friends, playing video games or crushing it at squash and softball with the company team.
