Kimberley founded WāVv over nine years ago to follow in her family’s legacy of service to Canada through Aerospace, Defence and Security. 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. As such, Kimberley has also been asked to speak at NATO and participate on the board for NIAG: NATO Industrial Advisory Committee.
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 also the founder and creator of the series of conferences called CONVERGX™.
