Have You Met Fuseini Osman? If you haven’t yet, we certainly hope you get the opportunity to chat with Fuseini Osman who is celebrating his tenth year with Acden Environment later in 2018. Fuseini was born in Accra, Ghana on the Atlantic coast of West Africa later growing up in the northern town of Yendi. In 1991, he decided to venture over the water to investigate what Canada had to offer and has remained here ever since. First landing in Vancouver, BC, Fuseini began working in a sawmill driving tractortrailers hauling wood and wood waste until 2008 when he heard of the development happening in Fort McMurray. With no secured employment, he headed North with great expectations. Upon arrival here in Fort McMurray, Fuseini worked with multiple companies delivering drywall while continuously searching for his next big opportunity. Shortly thereafter, he happened upon an acquaintance that had just secured a job with Acden (then Denesoline Environment) who offered to introduce Fuseini to the company. Almost immediately after meeting with Dan Rorke, Acden’s now VP of Business Development, Fuseini was hired on as an Operator for Acden Environment, where he remains today. Ten years of service is an incredible milestone and we want to make sure Fuseini knows how valued he is. It is this kind of commitment that lends to the strong culture within Acden and we are grateful for the time and dedication he has provided us. ...continued
L Fuseini Osman con’t In an interview, Fuseini explains the reasons why he loves his job: My first job here was a roll off truck driver but I am crosstrained to do any driving job that Acden Environment needs which offers me a lot of job stability. I can work at any site; I never worry about unemployment. There is a lot of day to day learning here, we get to work all the machines, and the team members and supervisors have always helped me develop my skills. The training program was excellent and I feel like I’ve always been able to keep learning; I have experience in so many roles. Our safety standards have always been excellent, too. I feel in control on the job and know that my team members

are trained well, I never feel at risk in my work which is a good feeling. I am now in my tenth year with Acden and I like this company because it has offered me a stable and supportive environment where we always have the right equipment to do the job. There is no guessing. Also, I was able to bring my son over from Ghana in 2015 and he now lives in Edmonton; we are very close. My son is enjoying his time in Canada and plans to stay. He graduated from high school last year and is already in the workforce. I am very happy and plan to be here for a long time.

Wendell Cobb He’s come a long way since “yeah, maybe” when responding to his first job offer at Acden, but Mr. Wendell Cobb is now looking back upon a decade of service. Yes, a DECADE! Previously employed by Big Eagle Services, Wendell was approached by his past supervisor and invited to join the team here at Acden. After some careful consideration Wendell decided to take the leap and after just three months as a Heavy Equipment Technician he was promoted to Supervisor. It was three and a half years in this role that proved Wendell’s talents and he has been Acden Fleet’s General Manager ever since. I asked Wendell what one of the biggest challenges he’s faced in this role and here’s what he said: “Making the transition from being a predominantly fleet service provider into the commercial and retail markets. While we stay true in our commitment to our industrial clients, we have opened up the shop to include commercial and individual clients as well. We want to make sure we are positioned in the community to reach the needs of everyone – industrial operations, big and small local companies, and the family down the street. We are the mechanic shop for anyone who needs help and it is a huge accomplishment of this team to be able to shift gears like that” (that was a rephrase and yes, pun intended).
“The staff here make life easy. We have an honest, hardworking and reliable crew who get along well,” Wendell explains his team are the best part of his job. Born and raised in Millville, New Brunswick, Wendell followed his ambition to Fort McMurray in 2004 to pursue career opportunities and we are so grateful he landed here at Acden just four short years later. Wendell has built, maintained and developed a really strong team, and receives an incredibly high amount of respect from staff here at Acden. He’s the go-to for automotive advice and is quick to step in whenever a teammate needs a hand. In his off time he focuses on family; daughters Summer, 9, Lexie, 6, and Callie, 5, keep Wendell and his wife Stacey, extra busy. Camping, quadding, and taking the RV to Wandering River are among his top memories. Congratulations to Wendell. Your contributions to the company are of great value and we stand behind you as you continue to expand.

Ken Shier Waskatenau. The small hamlet that hosts big personality Ken Shier – Acden Fleet employee who is celebrating his tenth anniversary with us. Born and raised in Ontario, Ken’s story sounds familiar to many of us – he came to Fort McMurray in search of adventure and opportunity. Ken certainly found both and gave me a detailed account of all his travels.
You are obviously very determined. Do you have a big family?
When did you first touchdown in Fort McMurray?
Being with Acden for 10 years leads me to believe you are happy. What do you like about your job?
Ken Shier (KS): I came to Fort McMurray as an Apprentice Mechanic in 1980 as there was no work at home in Ontario. I moved around quite a bit, Calgary, Edmonton; I spent 15 years in BC – between Ukulet and Tofino, then back to Fort McMurray. Can you tell me a little bit about your extensive career path? I understand you’ve done a lot. KS: I’ve held previous positions with Big Eagle, Fountain Tire, Diversified, Tuc’s, Catalytic before it became Jacobs, Calgary Motor Products – I’ve been all over. I was working as a Ticketed Automotive Service Technician before I came to Acden in 2008 but was hired on as a Heavy Equipment Technician Apprentice. Midway through 2011, I was promoted to Supervisor. What is your current position? KS: Heavy Duty Fleet Supervisor. Sounds like you’ve got a lot of education under your belt.
KS: My wife and four children, two girls two boys. Or, women & men – they are all grown now. I live with one of my sons here in Fort McMurray when I am on shift. He’s a carpenter helping with the town’s rebuild.
KS: We get to work with a whole bunch of different brands, and learn all kinds of stuff about big trucks – always something new. Acden’s been very supportive during extended learning periods/schooling. It’s always felt like a family here, even since we’ve gotten big. We’ve been able to keep a core group of staff and new people are welcomed into the “family”. We have a very tight crew with little turnover. So it’s safe to say you intend to be here for some time? KS: Yeah, it’s an excellent place to work. Ken’s hardworking, easy-going attitude makes him an integral part of the Acden Fleet team and we are thrilled to be celebrating his 10 year anniversary with him. Thank you Ken for your dedication and congratulations on this milestone!
KS: I took my first year of my Mechanic apprenticeship and Heavy Duty Mechanic apprenticeship then challenged the rest of my exams. I passed.
Special Mention TJ Gauvin Earns Red Seal Endorsement (RSE) I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate TJ Gauvin on successfully passing his Automotive Services Technician Apprenticeship and earning his Red Seal Endorsement (RSE). The team at Acden Fleet are proud of your hard work and dedication to this challenge. - Wendell Cobb, Acden Fleet General Manager
Ron Fogal A BC transplant, Ron came to Fort McMurray in 2003 in hot pursuit of a thriving market. After a few months with Ever-Ready he joined the team at Tuc’s Contracting where he made his first Acden connection – Dan Rorke. Ron then decided to head back home to spend time with his son and after one year, returned to Fort McMurray where Dan hired him as an Operator at Denesoline Environment (now Acden Environment). Shortly thereafter, Ron’s ambition landed him a Supervisor position at CNRL. He began studying for his National Construction Safety Officer (NCSO) certification and after completion, he took a role with Acden Fleet as HSE Supervisor and hasn’t looked back. He celebrated his 10 year anniversary In November. Before all of this though, there is another interesting story hidden away in the Fogal archives: Ron was once coached by Don Cherry while playing for an American Hockey League team. At the age of nine, Ron began playing hockey and found his kindred sport. He played minor league for teams such as the London Knights, Saint Catherines
Blackhawks and Toronto Marlboroughs before being drafted to the Juniors playing for the Rochester Americans. In 1973, Ron was signed by the New York Rangers. It wasn’t until he felt the impact of several knee injuries that he decided it was time to move along and pursued a career as a drug and alcohol counsellor for imprisoned youth across British Columbia. Ron remembers his time guest speaking in the prisons as the most rewarding. These aren’t the only experiences that have had an impact on Ron though. He has explained much gratitude for being a part of Acden through our dramatic growth periods and is thankful for the commitment of his co-workers, Acden teammates and Management guidance. We would like to send our gratitude right back to you Ron. Thank you for being our in-house comedian, our helping hand and always looking out for the best interest of Acden. We appreciate all you’ve done. Congratulations on your big 10!

Greetings from Acden Environment! Welcome everyone, To get us started, I will introduce myself to those I have not had the pleasure of meeting yet. I am Craig Warden, General Manager (GM) of Acden Environment. I began my career with Acden in August 2016. As some may know, I have been in the Logistics and Environment industry for over 25 years. My career has taken me all across Canada and the United States for extended periods of time. In my later career moves, I had the privilege of coming to the RMWB. The experience was rewarding and reminded me of what I love so much about Northern Canada. When an opportunity arose that would allow me to assist with the management and growth of Acden Environment, I jumped at the chance. I haven’t looked back since. Since my inception as the GM, we have made some significant staffing moves, and will continue to add strength to our leadership team as we grow and develop. Acden Environment is dedicated to providing training and growth opportunities for our shareholder, the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation. I hope to establish more Environmentally focused training opportunities for Heavy Equipment operation, Class 1 Driver operators and Landfill Management training. With the Acden vision for “ Trees Up To Trees Up” and our “Better Earth” programs evolving every day, I am completely excited to be right here, right now. 2017 was a very good year for Acden Environment. Some of the significant milestones include; • The re-signing and expansion of our partnership with Suncor
Continued significant education of our staff to become proficient as Certified Hazardous Waste Technicians, completed training, provided by the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA), for certification for Transfer Station Managers, Managers of Landfill Operations and Landfill Operations Basics
• Expansion into the Edmonton market as a commercial provider of service In the coming year we will endeavor to continue on this path, providing our shareholder and staff with opportunities for further growth and new opportunities. I hope to see Acden Environment, in collaboration with other Acden businesses, dominate the industry as the premier provider of Environmental solutions in Western Canada. Our outstanding Equipment Operators, Administrative staff, Foremen, Supervisors, Managers and Executive team continue to show their outstanding attention to Safety, Quality and Customer Service. With the continued support from our partner companies, 2018 has all the indications of being an incredible year. I am truly appreciative of the team members we have and the ones that will be joining our efforts. See you soon , Highest Regards, A. Craig Warden General Manager, Acden Environment
• Our entrance into the realm of large landfill management • The introduction of Acden Environment to the commercial waste industry in the RMWB
