The Riel Trail Story
Riel Trail Management was founded in 2015 by CEO & President Gaetan Blouin. Gaetan founded Blouin Financial Group Ltd. in 2005. Career highlights include being the youngest recipient of Manulife Financial's prestigious 1st Star on its Master Builder Recognition Program as well as Top Advisor in 2012 for the largest Exempt Market Dealer in Western Canada.
His most recent accomplishment was the structuring and management of a 12,000 square foot, 6-bay office condominium development in Saskatoon, with a return of 85% over 2 ½ years. Gaetan has a keen sense of when to act upon an opportunity and seeing the need for a commercial retail building supply centre for the rural area south of Saskatoon, Riel Trail Building Supplies was born. With the support of a multi-talented team, drawing from expertise in the financial world, manufacturing, construction and over a decade of retail and wholesale experience, Riel Trail Building Supplies has the perfect mix of hands on people to create an effective and cohesive team.
