Present


KIMBERLEY VAN VLIET

Founder & CEO, WāVv / Creator of ConvergX®


“Cross Sector Innovation: How Aerospace, Defence and Security Collaborate with Energy”



Kimberley founded WāVv over ten years ago to follow in her family’s legacy of service to Canada through Aerospace, Defence and Security (ADS). As a third generation Van Vliet she specifically is uniquely positioned from the civilian side ensuring that the best technology, research, and innovation is provided to the women and men in our armed forces. WāVv was created to diligently engage in securing those vital elements.

Global efforts require global partners which is why the business linkage of the Energy sector is valued. Recognized as one of the top five Canadian influential women in Defence, Kimberley has enabled the alignment of the two sectors. Solutions and innovative technology requirements in both sectors are remarkably similar. WāVv facilitates the cross sector acquisition of solutions and services. Coordinating with three critical partners Government, Industry, and Private Sector, securing innovative solutions while supporting research and development continue to ensure the right solution is provided.

Kimberley is the founder and creator of CONVERGX® - the first conference of it’s kind bringing together both the Energy and ADS industries together. The purpose is to discuss opportunities, technologies, problems, solutions and opportunities that both industries and those that affect and are affected by them have.

Kimberley is an active board member/association member:

Industrial Participants Association of Canada (IPAC)

Aerospace Industries Association of Canada (AIAC)

Canadian Association of Defence and Security Industries (CADSI)

Canadian Energy Executives Association (CEEA)

Petroleum Technology Alliance of Canada (PTAC)
