WDS wishes to congratulate Derek, as well as every notable 2018 winner. You are all stand-outs as Ottawa’s next generation of leaders.
Every great achievement is done slowly through a series of little steps. No one hands you a road map with directions, especially for a self-made person like Derek. His professional accomplishments, financial expertise, and community involvement genuinely reflect his own story.
When Derek joined WDS three short years ago, he recognized a rare opportunity to channel his passion for all-things financial into helping our clients meet their goals. Best of all, Derek’s in it for the long term.
WDS thanks the Ottawa Business Journal and the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce for this chance to spotlight these individuals’ outstanding contributions. The National Capital Region would not be as rich a business community without the contribution of their exceptional gifts.
