Tri Hawk is proud of the team it has assembled to sell and produce its products. Here are a few of the key people involved in the Tri Hawk family.
Gustel is the owner and president of Tri Hawk. He is our principle idea generator and the visionary that first recognized the value of a high quality dental bur with a low breakage rate. Gustel was also the leader in promoting the idea of single patient use burs to the dental industry. His charisma, focus and persistance has brought Tri Hawk to new heights, he truly is the Tri Hawk ambassador to the world. More often than not he can be found in plane, at an airport, or at an exhibition opening a new market somewhere in the World.
Joanne is the Chief Operations Officer and Plant Manager for Tri Hawk and Xenopus. She has an extensive background in management and holds a Masters in Public Administration. Starting her career as a teacher then executive director for the Greater Montreal Athletics Association before joining Tri Hawk almost 20 years ago. Joanne is the glue that holds the company together.
As with many people Keith’s road into the dental world has been filled with many twists and turns. From completing a Masters degree in Sports Management in Australia to working in banks (don’t hold it against him). Keith joined Tri Hawk in 2007 to help re-shape and improve North American sales. In 2008 Keith took on the challenge of opening our new European office based in Luxembourg. Now 10 years later and Europe has become Tri Hawk’s largest and most stable market. Tri Hawk now has representatives in almost every European country and most recently has made tremendous headway in Russia, opening a new Moscow sales office to handle this exciting market.
Scott started his career with a degree in Environmental studies from Trent University. Beginning by working in the not for profit environmental sector in New Brunswick, Canada. His career continued as the executive Director of the New Brunswick Trails Council until Xenopus offered to hire him in 2001. Learning a great deal on the job and using his management skills he created a solid quality control system for the factory and has since become a machine designer, a graduate of Algonquin College’s Mechanical Engineering Technology, and the resident guru on the applied uses of dental burs.
