Darcy Tuer is ZayZoon's Co-Founder and CEO, who grew up in Calgary and Edmonton and started his first tech company in 2000. “I'm passionate about Calgary's technology ecosystem.” Also the Co-founder and previous President of Spira Data Corp. for 11 years, he founded his first software company, Halo Networks, in 2000 while studying electrical engineering at the University of Alberta. As a man with a heart of gold, Darcy serves as Past-Chair on the board of the Missing Children’s Society of Canada and has been a Director since 2011.
Darcy was convinced he was meant to be a part of ZayZoon when Tate Hackert, ZayZoon's Co-Founder and President, pitched the company and its vision to him. The idea of bringing financial wellness to the masses and creating a social impact around the world was something he could not ignore. “We believed that if we had one person that needed us, that we could keep away from a predatory loan, we knew that there would be hundreds of thousands of people that we could help in the same way.”
Darcy considered a career in music and still plays the piano everyday. He loves to ski in the winter and mountain bike, hike, and camp in the summer with his wife and kids. Known as "DT", Darcy admits to being a perpetual optimist. He is adamant that everyone has superpowers that can be harnessed. Despite having a busy schedule, he takes time to be kind and extraordinarily nice to everyone around him - those would be his superpowers.
