Harry Chemko is the co-founder and CEO of Elastic Path Software in Vancouver and a board member of the Canadian Youth Business Foundation.
Three things on Mr. Chemko's mind:
1. I spend a lot of time thinking about how to continue to build a culture of excellence within an organization that's growing extremely fast.How do we keep increasing our percentage of “A” players and grow quickly at the same time? Having the best people is so cliché that it's cliché to say that it's cliché. But it's what any good executive team should be spending the majority of its time on.
2. I'm also always thinking about how to be the best partner to our customers. I don't mean that we just want to provide them with the best tactical software and services to run their ecommerce businesses - although that's important. I'm talking about how we can add exponential value by talking to them at a strategic level; how we can really align our success with their success.
3. I'm passionate about entrepreneurship as well. I think it's the fabric upon which a successful economy is built. I'm always thinking about how our country can do more to support entrepreneurs and less to impede them.
