Brad Peake

Committee Member

My name is Brad Peake and I have been a Drumhellerite since 1979. Today I work for and manage a privately owned Alberta-based Oil and Gas Company. By the age of 23, after completion of a four-year apprenticeship, I became a nationally certified Auto Mechanic and worked the trade for a total of ten years. I worked my way up from fixing cars to fixing oil wells and oil batteries, gas wells, sour gas plants and related sulphur extraction facilities, becoming a Lead Plant Operator of eight positions in Rainbow Lake. I now have an ownership stake in the business I work in today. People say I am very well rounded in how things work, how they should work, and why they may not work, what to do when they don't work, or if there is any chance at all if something might ever work. I am looking forward to being a part of the Community Futures Loan Review Committee and hope I bring some value to the process.
