Welcome Cole van Wyk

The Knak team is happy to welcome Cole van Wyk as Senior Accountant.   

Cole comes to Knak after four years of experience in public accounting with Ottawa-based accounting firm Logan Katz. He holds a Commerce degree with a specialization in Accounting from the University of Ottawa and is currently in the process of completing his CPA designation. 

Cole was introduced to accounting by his grandfather, who was a business mogul in their small town. He encouraged Cole and his brothers to follow in his footsteps, which led to an interest in accounting. 

As for why he enjoys the profession, Cole says, “Numbers tell a story about the company’s past and future activities. I find it interesting to put that story together to gain useful information for making future decisions. Plus, I like the problem solving aspect of it!” 

When he’s not crunching numbers on his abacus, you can find Cole hanging out with family, watching sports, and playing with his two fur babies. 

Welcome to Knak, Cole!
