Chairman

Yuri Fulmer

Dedicated to growth and giving back.

Yuri Fulmer has been building businesses since his early twenties. Having arrived from Australia a few years earlier, it all began when he was faced with the unexpected opportunity to buy a local franchise while working for A&W. Young, but extremely motivated, Yuri figured out how to put together enough money and made the tough decision to focus solely on running a business, rather than studying them at school.

Since then, Yuri has grown that single A&W franchise into dozens, as well as managed, developed and invested in a number of other businesses including Mr. Mike’s Steakhouse and Pizza Hut franchises across Western Canada, doggedly building a $60 million business portfolio by the time he was 30.

In 2000, Yuri founded FDC Brands Inc (now Fulmer & Company Investments Inc) to continue doing what he does best — helping businesses grow. Currently, Fulmer & Company owns and invests in a collection of companies in the hospitality, business-to-business, manufacturing, construction, digital technology and consumer service industries. To date, Fulmer & Company businesses have been named among Canada’s Fastest Growing Private Companies five times. And yes, Yuri’s counting.

Right from the start, serving the local community has also been an important part Yuri’s work. Over the years, he’s been actively involved in local non-profit, educational and arts organizations, and serves as an accredited Director on a number of corporate and civic boards. Currently, Yuri is the National Chair of United Way Centraide Canada, Co-Chair of the Vancouver Fireworks Festival Society, a Director of the BC Achievement Foundation and the Vancouver Opera Foundation, and an Advisor at Active Impact Investments and the Little Kitchen Academy. He is a past Chair of the Board of BC Ferries, and a former director of the Vancouver Foundation, Vancouver Opera, Boys and Girls Clubs and the Surrey Food Bank. Yuri served on the Board of BlueShore Financial for 7 years, including chairing the Human Resource and Compensation Committee, and serving on the Nominations & Election Committee, the Audit Committee, the Governance & Conduct Review Committee and the Investment Committee. 

On June 18, 2020, Yuri was installed as Capilano University's Fourth Chancellor, making him the youngest University Chancellor in Canada. 

In 2019, Yuri established The Fulmer Foundation to take Fulmer & Company’s community investment to the next level, continuing his long-standing commitment to helping improve social issues with more than just financial support. One of the foundation’s biggest undertakings is the management and support of Goodly Foods Society — a social enterprise working to repurpose surplus produce from local suppliers, while creating employment opportunities for people in need.

As much as recognition is not what drives him, Yuri feels truly honoured to have received a considerable amount of acknowledgement for his contributions to others, including: Canada’s Top Forty Under 40 (2008), The BC Community Achievement Award (2010), The Spirit of Vancouver Award (2011), The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal (2012) and The Order of British Columbia (2010), our Province’s highest honour, for Yuri’s “dynamic entrepreneurship and committed volunteerism”.

Away from the office, you can often find Yuri enjoying the great outdoors near and far, fishing, diving, canoeing, kayaking, climbing and exploring. Or, you know, not find him.

Jeanette Reddington

Make an impact - make it matter.

Jeanette Reddington joined Fulmer & Company at the beginning of 2021. As an operations generalist with a richly diverse executive history in growth-oriented organizations, Jeanette brings in a proactive approach to the management team. Her professional journey, unconventional by some measures, has been meaningful and strategic. She is a Certified Insurance Professional who holds an Executive MBA from SFU’s Beedie School of Business and certifications in Risk Management and Conflict Resolution.

In her early career, Jeanette found her calling in automotive service industry and quickly became one of the finest female licensed Red Seal automotive technicians in North America. Between 1998 and 2007, she worked in the repair shops alongside other top technicians, perfecting her technical and management skills, while learning early on the importance of each “cog in the machine” to deliver performance.

Jeanette is a seasoned executive with a strong focus on operations and relationship management. Before joining Fulmer & Company, she was the Manager at LGM Financial Services. She was also VP of ES3 Insurance Services and Evolution Strategies, and held the Director position at RTOWN, assisting with business restructuring.

Given her extensive experience in insurance, financial services and marketing, Jeanette demonstrates a unique style which allows her to balance risk mitigation with a future-forward optimistic view. She is bold yet friendly, with a great sense of humor.

Jeanette is known to roll up her sleeves and continuously drive improvement, approaching business with a people-first, cause-no-harm mindset. One of her natural strengths is building mutually beneficial relationships and helping others succeed - something she is most passionate about.

Jeanette cares deeply about people, the community and the sustainability of our eco-system. She has been actively involved in various not-for-profit organizations, including the Boys & Girls Clubs and the Association of Neighbourhood Houses. She was a campaign lead for raising funds for Planeterra’s Women micro loan program in Kenya, and currently serves as Board Director with the Langley Lodge Care Society.  

Outside of her work in the office and in the community, you can usually find Jeanette at the cottage enjoying the beach with family and friends.

Tom Wood Joined the Fulmer & Company team in July 2021 as Senior Associate, Marketing, bringing with him 8 years of agency experience and a background in marketing and sales engineering, digital content, and video post-production. Tom’s approach is technical, creative, and holistic, shaped by many years as a technology generalist supporting operational experts and executives alike.

Prior to joining the team, Tom was the first employee at local Vancouver agency RTOWN where he was instrumental in helping grow the organization from its startup roots, through an acquisition and a pivot into a company that has helped thousands of small-medium sized businesses get a foothold online and launch successful campaigns with a positive return on investment.  

His superpower is making marketing and technology user-friendly and easy to understand. He excels at finding simple, creative solutions to complex digital problems and communicating the strategic value that informs and influences c-suite decision-making.  

When he is not plugged in, Tom can be found sailing the coast of BC with his wife and dog, Micah, or in the Whistler mountains hunting for new bike trails or a backcountry powder stash.
