Our Executive Team

 

Brian Antenbring

Brian Antenbring

Founder & President

A lemonade stand back in 1975. I was six years old and I can remember it as if it was yesterday. 5 cents per glass. The first stand was at the end of my driveway in a sparse community in Kamloops. The traffic wasn’t that good, so I knew I needed to move locations. I went to the local rodeo and set up shop.

I ran out of lemonade.

At that moment, I knew my destiny. It wasn’t so much the money that excited me; it was the rush of doing a deal and my entrepreneurial spirit was born. This spirit continued throughout high school and university where I would look for creative ways to transform a product or service, or create my own from scratch.

I was introduced to the staffing industry in the late 90’s and fell in love with it! My journey within the industry brought clarity to me in how I was going to transform the industry forever.

TEEMA was born.

As President of TEEMA, my role is to set vision, protect culture and to ensure we execute on our growth strategy. We have an incredible depth of talented members across the organization. My real joy now comes from empowering our members to greatness.

Steve Reimer

Steve Reimer

VP of Operations

Throughout my life I’ve been lucky to be surrounded by the right people – my teachers, classmates, close friends and mentors have helped shape how I view and approach the world. My journey in business stemmed from a family who not only were self-employed, but who encouraged me in anything I set my mind to. Early on I was able to make sense out of chaos. I was certainly organized and analytical, yet I had a passion to build something. However, I never wanted to get into business alone.

I was introduced into the Staffing Industry by Brian Antenbring back in 2004 and was surprised how well it aligned with who I am. This industry confirms I’m in the right place and being with TEEMA from the beginning affirms that we’ve built something unique and different – a very rewarding opportunity.

As Vice President of Operations, my role is to build on the foundation we have – to protect our model and ensure all that we do is scalable and sustainable for years to come. We have something special here at TEEMA and so we need to ensure the right infrastructure is in place for our people to succeed.
