Our Team

Kristy Carruthers

Kristy Carruthers

CEO

Kristy is our Chief Solutions Specialist and Product Jenius.  With over 25 years of experience in the marketing and promotions industry. Her varied career has included a decade as a top Promotions and Account Manager in the cruise industry, Owner of Integrity Promotions Group, and now, Director of Proforma Inspired Promotions.

While all the products we provide are fun in their own way, creating custom pieces is her true love.  She enjoys working with our client partners to create the perfect, one of a kind piece that conveys exactly the right message and is completely unique to them. 

When she’s not at the office or out on client calls, Kristy is spending time with her two children and most likely watching something animated on Netflix.  Kristy’s passions include scuba diving and travel.  At 40 countries and counting she’s determined to see them all some day.

Neeru Singh

Neeru Singh

Graphics and Social Media Manager

Our Graphics and Social Media Manager Neeru, is our resident ray of sunshine and bringer of chocolate cakes.  She was born and raised in India, where she completed her Masters in Computer Science and launched her career as a Quality Assurance Analyst with six years of Experience. She moved to Canada 12 years ago, and today she is a proud mom of two little girls, six and ten.

She has worked as a Digital Graphic Designer in Kelowna for the last three years and proudly donated her design services to Kelowna Women’s  Shelter for two years.

She joined our Proforma family over a year ago as a Graphics Coordinator and has become an integral part of the team. She loves to unplug by volunteering, hiking, gym, meditating (even on a cliff.)  Although that doesn’t sound relaxing to anyone else in the office.

She considers books like “The Secret” and “The Power” to be her mentors in life.

“Make Each Day Your Masterpiece” is her favorite quote by John Wooden.

Kara Olexson

Kara Olexson

Office Manager

Kara, our Client Service Manager, enjoys the sport of curling in the winter months, but mostly prefers to be inside warm and cozy with her latest knitting or crochet project while sipping a glass of wine. In the summer you can find her out on some local hiking trails, at the beach, camping, or out on the lake on her stand-up paddle board.  Friends and family are where a lot of her time is spent outside of work, especially with her two little nieces. She is our resident movie buff, wine connoisseur and attendee of local entertainment and is willing to give reviews on any or all of the above.

Tanis Funk

Tanis Funk

Solutions Specialist

Tanis was a small-town Alberta girl prior to moving to the big city of Kelowna in 2013. Before becoming our resident Solutions Specialist, Tanis worked in banking for 8 years, helping customers obtain Mortgages as well as building relationships and managing finances.   After 5 years of being a stay-at-home mom, she was eager to get back into the workforce, and we are thrilled she joined our team!

When asked about hobbies, first on the list is wine, or at least making wine and touring locally to find all the hidden gems in the Okanagan, one sip at a time!  Perhaps our weekly office “Wine Fridays’ is one of the reasons she joined the team? Travelling is also on her list of things she enjoys with her family, along with her passion for animals which includes her own fur baby.

If she for some reason is unable to” Wow” you with her Customer Service, she is surely able to win you over with one of her many delicious dip creations, just ask the team!
