Tanya Korenda
Chief Executive Officer

Tanya began her electronics manufacturing career on the production floor assembling boards for a railway electronics company.

She worked her way through a variety of departments, moving up to Master Scheduler and eventually, Production Manager. After 13 years, the manufacturer moved its operations to the United States, and Tanya looked for new opportunities. From 2003, she was the operator of a flagship Husky Energy retail site, before starting at August Electronics in 2007. Over the past decade, Tanya has been instrumental in helping August grow and refine their operating practices while building a team of talented production and office personnel. With over 20 years in the electronics manufacturing industry, Tanya understands how to manage and scale a successful business. Her experience and dedication will guide August’s future growth and operational success. Tanya is also a devoted mother, loves outdoor activities with her family and watching her son play lacrosse.
