Team Wired

Meet Team Wired!

Whistler Wired is built on delivering exemplary service and value. Our dedicated sales, maintenance, housekeeping, and transportation staff help us remain true to this vision.

Nathan McLeod, Co-Owner

Nathan founded Whistler Wired with his good friend and ski buddy Martin, and they still hold their weekly meetings on a chairlift.  Nathan has a Bachelor of Commerce degree and his over 25 years of industry experience includes working for Whistler Blackcomb as an international sales rep and as a ski instructor. He is motivated to exceed homeowners’ expectations and gets satisfaction helping guests enjoy their Whistler vacation. Nathan enjoys hockey, salmon fishing, hunting and spending time with his wife and three boys.
Martin Kraut, Co-Owner

Martin founded the company in the summer of 1999 with his good ski buddy Nathan and they still have a weekly chairlift meeting. He began his career shredding Whistler pow as a four-year-old. Fast forward to today, and his experience includes management roles with Marriott and Fairmont. Martin is an experienced pilot and you might see him taking off from Green Lake in his custom float plane. Or, skiing with his family. Martin has enjoyed the ride meeting new friends and challenges and is looks forward to the next 20 years being just as exciting.
Mark Lasseter, Partner

Mark grew up in Toronto, arriving in Whistler in 1998 for “just one season.” Well, you can guess what happened. An integral part of Whistler Wired since 1999, he also was a popular ski and snowboard instructor for 10 years.  Mark chases the snow year-round, operating  in Argentina and Chile. He is fluent in Spanish and Portuguese.
Christopher Woods, Director of Operations

Chris joined Whistler Wired in the spring of 2011 fresh from nine months of travel in Asia, Australia and New Zealand. He has a Tourism Management Degree from Thompson Rivers University achieving the Dean’s List and he climbed the ranks to a management role at Pan Pacific Hotels in Whistler. Nothing fazes Chris as he rolls with any challenge in the pursuit of delivering a fantastic guest experience. He  grew up on Shuswap Lake, where he ran a wakeboard school, and has a love for the outdoors, spending time with his family, snowboarding/skiing and mountain biking.
Jernee Barrientos, Housekeeping Manager

Jernee has a Bachelor of Science degree in Foreign Service from The Lyceum of the Philippines, Manila and left her career as a Sales Manager for a semiconductor company to emigrate to Canada in 2007. She started cleaning Whistler Wired’s first property by herself and has been responsible for the onboarding of each of our now 40 properties. During peak periods, Jernee directs a team of up to 20 housekeepers and is responsible for keeping our homes in tip top shape. Having lived in a country where there’s only either rain or sun, Whistler has given her space to learn, grow and experience snow – and she’s loving it!

Arthur Barrientos, Maintenance Manager

Art has a Bachelor of Science degree in Foreign Service from the Lyceum of the Philippines, Manila and followed his wife Jernee to Canada to carve out a new life. He has a strong maintenance and technology background that, combined with a creative problem solving approach, enables him to maintain Whistler Wired’s properties in top condition. He is a sought after bassist and a mainstay of the Whistler music scene, playing in a number of different bands. You would be hard pressed to find someone more amicable than Art as colleagues, guests and owners enjoy his sunny disposition and infectious smile.
Sebastian Munoz, Photographer/Technology Specialist
In 2018 we recruited Seb directly from Chile where he was working as a Technical Analyst for Oracle. He is Whistler Wired’s photographer and IT specialist. Sebastian has a background as a professional photographer with photo credits in Ski Magazine and the European White Magazine. He is fluent in Spanish, English and gets by in Portuguese which is very helpful for our South American and Mexican guests. Seb is an avid backcountry snowboarder and mountain biker.
Jason Tonin, Senior Driver, Vehicle Maintenance

Jason arrived in Whistler in 2003 wanting to take a gap year after graduating with a degree in Communications from Carleton University. Jason is an avid Jeep Club member and enjoys working on his lifted Jeep Wrangler. If he’s not driving our guests, there is a good chance he will be out exploring dirt roads, skiing powder, or swimming in one of the amazing Whistler lakes.
Martin Reinberg, Administrative Assistant

Martin arrived in Canada in 2018 and started working for us that same year. During his time off you will find him Splitboarding the Whistler Blackcomb backcountry or, in summer, riding mountain bike trails.
Karen McLeod, Client Relations and Housekeeping

Karen wears many hats. She is responsible for the delicious home made  jam and cookies we spread around. She helps in housekeeping with inspections and training. Since her side hustle is writing, we put her to work when we need copy.  And if you want to know about the local spas and restaurants, Karen’s our expert.
Kieran Price, Guest Service Manager

Kieran comes to us with a wealth of knowledge and experience working for a variety of service businesses from around the world.
Originally from Northern Ireland, he holds a Bachelor’s Degree with Honours in business.
He arrived in Canada in 2018 and through his dedication and hard work he has quickly learned the ropes of the business and now serves in the role of Guest Service Manager.
He is an avid foodie and nature lover and would love to assist you with any special requests to make your stay memorable.
Frazer Houghton, Guest Experience Coordinator

Frazer first came to Whistler for only 1 winter in November 2016. After working in housekeeping for Whistler Wired, he quickly moved up to guest experience coordinator. Unfortunately, in November 2018 Frazer’s visa expired and he had to leave Canada. After living in Australia, a 6-month trip through Asia and a brief stint back in the UK, Frazer is back in Whistler or, as he says, “he’s finally home”. In the Winter you will find Frazer skiing, and in the summer, you will find Frazer camping, mountain biking and hiking.
