Gail received the Women of Distinction Award for Business and Entrepreneurs in the year 2000. In 2010, Gail received an Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree from the University of Calgary as well as the Eric Harvey Award from the Glenbow Museum.

Gary Jacques

A fifth-generation Calgarian, Gary holds a Bachelor of Applied Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Calgary and a Master of Applied Science in Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering from the University of Toronto. His graduate research at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital applied design theory to improve prosthetic limb function.

His early career was in design and commercialization of new mechanical and software products in oil and gas, environmental remediation and healthcare industries. He holds patents, published journal articles, and conference proceedings in several of these areas.

Gary was the fifth employee and partner at Peloton and oversaw data solutions design and engineering. Peloton is a Calgary-based, international software startup that achieved more than 30% revenue growth for 17 consecutive years. Peloton is known for successfully developing data solutions bringing together many aspects of petroleum operations. By applying these same design methods to non-engineering areas of production accounting and contract land agreements, Peloton fundamentally changed how that information was managed by solving root problems directly rather than accommodating historical layers of methods that evolved prior to modern computing capabilities.

Successfully transitioning out of Peloton in 2014, Gary now manages a private foundation with the goal of advancing the use of personal health information to improve outcomes in the medical system. He would like to see data used more effectively to improve prevention, diagnosis, communication and treatment of personal health. Other volunteer activities include helping the local technology ecosystem and coaching kids’ activities.

Gary shares his spare time with his wife and three energetic kids travelling and doing outdoor activities including skiing, biking, and sailing.
