    ExcelGuru.ca is run by Ken Puls, FCPA, FCMA. I'm a Certified Management Accountant, who never remembers life without spreadsheets and computers.

    Since mid 1999, my career has been spent in the hospitality and tourism industry, in the finance and IT field. Starting as the Accounting Supervisor and Systems Administrator at Fairwinds Community & Resort on Vancouver Island, BC, I was promoted to Controller/Director of IT in September 2007. To this day, I dedicate a significant portion of my time to developing automated solutions and internal controls for the golf course, 400 berth marina, and two food and beverage outlets that make up the resort, as well as focusing time and energy on improving the Business Intelligence systems that run our real estate development. During this time, I've found that my true passion is designing and developing new systems, using such technology as Excel spreadsheets, databases built with Microsoft Access, and hand-held scanner technologies for taking inventory.
