Meet McWane: Jerri Penrose, Canada Pipe/Clow Canada

Jerri Penrose 25 Years

After 25½ years of dedicated service with Canada Pipe & Clow Canada, Credit Manager Jerri Penrose (pictured top right) is retiring on May 1. Jerri, also known as a “super” user, has been an integral part in implementing the new computer systems at Canada Pipe and Clow Canada. Though we will definitely miss Jerri’s wicked sense of humor and laughter around the office, we wish her a long and happy retirement!

Colleen Jardim (pictured bottom right) is replacing Jerri as the new Credit Manager. Colleen has over 14 years of credit management experience in the waterworks industry and has been working with Jerri for the past few months during the implementation of the new computer systems.

As we celebrate Jerri’s departure, we also welcome Colleen to the Hamilton location and know she will be a great asset to the team!
