"There is no better time than the present."
Zach Fedora – Administrator

Biography:  I have been with Oaktree since February 2024, working previously in the business and construction industry. I graduated from Red River College with a Diploma in Business Administration and have been involved behind the scenes with Oaktree for a while now.

My Role: I enjoy interacting with clients supporting them with a friendly smile as I meet and greet them. Answering phone calls and questions while being sympathetic as people are not always in a great place when calling in, especially for the first time. I also deal with behind-the-scenes stuff such as billing, and funding requests and try to create an environment where clients feel welcome and relaxed. I am very happy to be able to come into such a positive environment everyday.
