Derek Bullen is Founder and CEO of S.i. Systems ULC. It is one of the largest professional services companies in Canada, with thousands of Information Technology consultants working on projects across Canada for blue chip corporations and government agencies. He is the author of High Velocity, a book to help new professionals in IT develop their soft business skills.
As CEO, Derek blends creativity and precision learned from a career as a musician, an ARCT from the Toronto Royal Conservatory of Music in classical piano, and a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Calgary. Derek balances his professional and personal life by making a point of taking a minimum of 60 days off each year to recharge and create new shared experiences with his family.
Experiencing life is a large part of Derek’s purpose, from vision quests with the Goodstriker family of the blood nation in southern Alberta, multiple Camino pilgrimages across Spain, and many visits to Sri Narayani Peedam in Malakodai, India. Derek continually refreshes the way forward for himself and his company, by growing from the inside.
Derek and his wife and three children split their time between Calgary and Vancouver.
