Mark Cheyne – Owner
Mark started his career in the oilfield business in 1984 after he graduated from his post-secondary education with an engineering diploma. He immediately accepted a position with JC International and was based in Kindersley, Saskatchewan. After five years with JC International, Mark transferred to Drayton Valley, Alberta, to help with an upstart oil producer, Colin Energy. It was here that Mark forged friendships and acquaintances “that will last a lifetime”. During the five years Mark worked for Colin Energy he had ideas of starting his own company so, in the spring of 1992, he started a small oil producer called Bredal Energy. It took a couple of years to get to the point of stability but, once it did, Mark quit at Colin and started the daily journey of his own business. With the volatility of the oil business, the fifteen years in which Bredal was active led to some trying times, but those were far outweighed by the enjoyable times.
In 2007, Mark joined Vision Sports Group, owner of the BCHL West Kelowna Warriors. He and his wife, Janelle, and their kids, Tanner and Tori, moved to the Westside to help out with the operations of the hockey club. In the 2009/2010 season, Mark made the decision to assume full owndership of the team and is looking forward to more great seasons of hockey ahead.
