Do not be alarmed. These are the people you will work with. They are trained professionals. And one of them always matches his shoes and t-shirts.
“Koop” is blitzkrieg of energy and enthusiasm. After teaching graphic design in high school for ten years, he decided to pursue business (and golf) on his own. Chez Koop has been a labour of love for 10 years now, 5 of which have been full-time. A complex individual (see list of love), he loves designing cool stuff and not taking himself too seriously (because nobody else does). Koop takes pride in his ability to develop design concepts quickly, dance and provide great customer service to our clients. He loves to travel and has visited 49 countries. Wickedly good looking and a great sense of humour defined his university years, however male pattern baldness, love handles and some winter weight have taken the shine off what was once a promising existence. However, he is still the funniest guy he knows. Koop now is told what to do by both his wife (ridiculously hot) and Andrea (ridiculously hip). He is dealing with that admirably.

Our adopted son “Fish n’ Chipps”, joined the firm in February of 2011 and hasn’t looked back. Holding a British passport, Adrian takes pride in his roots in Sandwich a small hamlet down the road from Reuben. He was anointed Lord Trimble, Baron of Chezford, placing him amongst the UK’s elite. His fascination with zeros and ones is a great asset as he heads up our international web design division, provided his afro hairstyle is in a reasonable state of trim (he can’t sleep if it gets too long). His instinctive design sense and overall aptitude for all things web prove to be an invaluable asset to the firm. He is our lead web designer and does amazing work. He is currently single, loves wildlife (particularly lions, cheetahs and cougars), drinks too much beer at times (an admitted weakness for independent craft IPA’s), and checks his various fictitious online dating profiles daily when he is not checking his phone, which at times is a decided distraction.

Our newest team member, Andrea or “Javs” as she is affectionately known, is a welcome addition. We needed someone clever to round out the company mantra (Adrian is all over simple and Koop handles the cool) and she fit the bill. In addition to her mad design skills, she also loves shopping for slacks. She seems to have a real penchant for “bossy pants” as she tells everyone what to do. But, technically, as office manager, that is her job so no one is complaining (though at this time there is no protocol for a formal complaint). One of the most conscientious, kind, and hardest working people you’ll ever meet, Javs brings rugged, hipster sunshine to the office on the cloudiest of days. When she’s not cyber-stalking Eli Manning or Rory Mcilroy, she loves to travel and has been all over the world. And if you’re late on an invoice… the wrath of Javs may find it’s way to your inbox.

Buck Hornsby has been with Chez Koop for over two years. Before establishing the HR Department at Chez Koop, Buck was instrumental in creating a human resource program at Deer Lodge in Winnipeg. Prior to that, Buck was a part of a very successful boy band called “Chasing Whitetail”. Whether it is employees fawning over one another inappropriately or workplace health and safety (particularly the enforcement of no hunting zones within the workplace environment), Buck is always monitoring our day to day operations. His presence is like a larger “fly on the wall”. In his spare time, he authors a syndicated relationship column across North America entitled “Deer Buck” where he provides relationship advice and counselling. A Vegan, he enjoys long walks in the forest, Olympic trampolining and four legged races.
