Tsain-ko Group of Companies taps Jason Jenkins as CEO, starting January 1, 2023.
After overseeing a four-year hyper-growth period for tsain-ko Group of Companies, CEO Debbie Hendsbee will step down in January 2023, leaving behind a legacy of stability, expansion, and profitable operations. Under Debbie’s steady hand, TKDC experienced enormous change, acquiring Swanson’s Ready-Mix Concrete, building a haul trucking company and acquiring the contract for the Lehigh mine, initiating multiple land holdings and real estate projects, reinventing the Nations forestry operations, and most importantly, building expertise and capacity into the organization to meet the Nation’s succession goals. Debbie will continue on in a consulting role for the forestry division. Chair of the Board Warren Paull offered some of his greatest praise for Debbie as she transitions from the CEO role: “We have been honoured to benefit from the vision and integrity of Debbie Hendsbee over the past 4 years, leading our corporate business team through the most rapid growth period in tsain-ko’s history, with over 60% Nation-member representation on a team that has grown from 5 staff to over 60. We thank Debbie for all that she has done for tsain-ko and the Nation.”
