Chief Executive Officer
A proud Indigenous entrepreneur and business leader with 25 years of experience with some of Canada’s most prominent pipeline, infrastructure, and mining companies. Trent founded Steel River Group in 2017 based on the belief that there has never been a better time to reimagine how a private Indigenous business defines, creates, and captures value for Indigenous communities’ & people.
To achieve this goal, he established his company’s Governing Principles, which are deeply rooted in Indigenous values, beliefs, and culture. The foundation is grounded by a strong sense of community, centered around people and relationships. These relationships are premised around creating alignment between three critical groups: Steel River Companies; Indigenous Communities; and Alliance Partners through Steel River Group’s Inclusion Ecosystem Model.
As a diverse management entity, Steel River Group provides corporate governance, structure, and support to its group of companies as well as to its Ecosystem partners.
As Chief Executive Officer, Trent drives Steel River Group’s vision and provides support and guidance to his team and Ecosystem partners. He believes strongly in helping those around him to succeed and spends countless hours supporting and enabling his staff and mentoring entrepreneurs and individuals around him. His vision for the organization’s future is to support the process of collaborative engagement, foster the preservation of cultural and traditional values, and champion social sovereignty and economic sustainability for our people.
