C. Esther de Wolde, CGA
Chief Executive Officer
As one of the founders of Phantom Screens, Esther has nurtured and grown the corporation to become the leading brand in the retractable screen industry. Her passion for business is matched by her care for people – believing that Phantom Screens can only be truly successful if it has served its people, its customers and its business partners with respect and with integrity.
Esther’s finance and administration background coupled with her vision has enabled her to guide the company through growth, through change and through challenge. In the first year of business, Phantom Screens sold just 500 screens. Over twenty years later, under her leadership, the company has sold over 1.4 million retractable screens and now has representation across North America, Australia, the UK, the Caribbean and the Far East.
Her determination to succeed is complemented by her belief in values-based leadership. The company’s core values are at the heart of Phantom Screen’s culture and something that she believes sets it apart from other organizations. As she says: “they are our guiding star and keep us accountable to do ‘the right thing’.
Outside of her role as Chief Executive, Esther is a Certified General Accountant, a member of the Corporation Board of Directors of World Vision Canada and an active speaker and City Team member for the LeaderImpact Group.
Being a country farm girl at heart, she loves nothing more than spending time working in her garden and is currently taking on the challenge of English horse riding.
