Nolin Veillard is the Calgary-based entrepreneur, founder and managing director of TRAK Kayaks, the company behind the top portable and high performance kayaks on the market worldwide. Nolin’s passion for TRAK spans more than a decade. He has pursued the company’s success relentlessly, including being a core part of the group that refined a hand-built prototype into a shape-shifting kayak that can now be found across the globe.

He is delighted to be leading the charge for the TRAK 2.0 era.
