Kent Brown named Vice President, Learning & Development
Legacy Bowes is pleased to announce that Kent Brown has been promoted to Vice President, Learning & Development.
Brown, a proud member of Fisher River Cree Nation, is a senior human resources professional with 28 years of human resources experience, much of which was gained in a large, Indigenous social service agency. He is active in community-based initiatives where he volunteers and contributes to the development of youth.
Since joining Legacy Bowes in 2021, Brown has been using his extensive experience to facilitate many different human resource workshops and courses to Indigenous and non-Indigenous corporations and community organizations across Western Canada.
On this new role, Brown said that he is most excited to continue providing assistance to First Nations with training and leadership needs and to give back to First Nations communities in a bigger way.
Legacy Bowes is part of the TIPI Group of Companies, which has become a “one-stop-shop” for clients by offering professional advisement and access to services including Leadership and Development, Executive Search and Recruitment, Human Resources Services, Property and Casualty Insurance, Group Pension and Benefits, and Group Benefits Administration. The TIPI Group of Companies and its entities are grounded in Truth and Reconciliation in all that they do.
Legacy Bowes offers an array of workshops, certificate courses, and learning opportunities that help teach tangible skills to participants. Throughout his time at Legacy Bowes, Brown has become a sought-after facilitator for capacity development, leadership training, and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action #92 Knowledge Program for Corporate Canada.
“My work is about building bridges. Every morning, I jump out of bed and I am thinking about how I can empower our People and make tangible impacts in the communities and organizations we serve,” Brown said. "I am honoured, I am grateful, to be a part of this TIPI Group of Companies and I look forward to the future and what we can accomplish as a whole.”
Nathan Ballantyne, TIPI Group of Companies CEO, said the organization is excited to have Brown at the helm of the Learning and Development pillar with Legacy Bowes.
“If you’ve heard Kent speak professionally or if you have had the opportunity to meet him, you know that he’s a great teacher who is passionate about his work,” Ballantyne said. “Between his knowledge and connection to First Nation culture and community, Kent is and will continue to be a strong leader within our organization as he transitions into his new role.”
