Sean Penn also has a nearly 20-year career at Chandos.

Tom Redl, Chandos’ CEO, said that “as leaders, Tim and Sean have always focused on people, culture and systems as enablers of client satisfaction and growth. We will continue to focus on people as we scale the organization. Chandos is growing largely as a result of our expansions into British Columbia and Ontario. At the same time, the Alberta economy is slowly recovering. Chandos is thriving as a result. At no time have I seen more potential for us at Chandos than I do right now. The opportunities before us are many and significant; I am both eager and excited to see what the next few years will bring.”

Please join us in congratulating Tim and Sean in their new roles!
