Darren Van Wart
President
I have been with Progressive since the beginning. I had worked in forestry for 15 years prior and played a key part in operations there. I was looking for a change and Progressive was the answer! I play a big part in the day to day operations and lead our IT department. Something not everyone knows about me is that I grew up in Sylvan Lake with Mike and can write backwards!
John Eaton
Vice President Sales
I started working at Progressive right out of university after finishing my Business Management Degree. In university I was the captain of our hockey team for 3 out of the 4 years and I met a few other Progressive teammates like Donovan, Josh and Kiel during that time. You may not be able to picture it, but in Grade 12 I won my high school talent show singing a duet of A Whole New World from Aladdin.
Jason Davis
Vice President Client Solutions
I technically started with Progressive in October of 2006, but actually worked as a “Scan Man” while I was finishing up my Business Degree. Progressive was the first job I had out of school, but I have done many different jobs within the company. I love camping, fly-fishing and heli-skiing.
Donovan Sugiyama
Vice President of Operations
I came to Progressive in May of 2008, as a referral from my friend and University Hockey Captain, John, after finishing my Business Degree. Hockey is a huge part of my life and I have been playing since I was 4 years old. You may be surprised to know that although I am a hockey guy, I like country music and am an excellent two-stepper!
