Meet Shane!

Meet Shane McMahon.

He drinks his coffee black. He’s a family man. He’s a man of few words (unless you get him fired up). And, he’s been with Canadian Energy for over 15 years.

Shane started his journey with us at our Kamloops Branch as a Warehouse/Countersales person. He has driven route trucks, spent time as a Branch Manager in Winnipeg, and most recently works from our Head Office in Calgary. Shane has definitely taken on a lot of different roles.

Shane is without a doubt one of the most capable members of our team. We sat down with Shane recently for a quick chat about his history with Canadian Energy so we can all get to know him a little better.
