Nicole Verkindt

She may have found her start in her family’s aerospace business, but when Nicole Verkindt spied a chance to create her own company, she flew the nest and hasn’t looked back since. Verkindt founded OMX (Offset Market Exchange) and invented a software solution that matches up the biggest aerospace players with Canadian technology partners. Her customer list includes industry heavyweights such as Lockheed Martin and British Aerospace. Verkindt’s busy schedule has her jetting around the globe to high-level meetings with world leaders as she oversees the international growth of OMX.
