Walter Semkuley 

Co-Founder, Chairman of the Board, CEO

Walter co-founded Micotan in 2002, fulfilling a passion to become a business owner, after a lifelong career as a Chartered Accountant that began as an original graduate of Simon Fraser University. Micotan was developed as a petroleum software tool to solve major data management problems of that time. That initiative has become industry leadership for Micotan as Walter maintains his visionary role while also leveraging his CA credentials. He helps identify opportunities for growth, both geographically and in product development (as a world traveler he has a unique perspective). Whether steering this vision with Micotan leaders or joining the team as they meet with customers, Walter remains a resource that ensures staff and clients have an open door to the best opportunities. Walter is proud to support a team of equally visionary individuals with incredibly high standards for the work they do.
