About Jenny

Jenny Motkaluk is a decisive manager with a record of results in business and community leadership. After earning a BSc in Molecular Biology from the University of British Columbia, she worked for over a decade in senior business development positions in the biotechnology and IT sectors.

She traveled back and forth across Western Canada from Victoria to Winnipeg covering that territory for companies like Fisher Scientific, Pall Corporation, Qiagen QIAGEN, SAP Business Objects and she was Vice-President Sales for 5x Technology.

Jenny knows Winnipeg. She was raised here and lives here with her family. Jenny understands City Hall, thanks to her eight years of service on the City’s Board of Revision, which adjudicates property tax disputes.

Jenny knows the challenges of promoting our economy from her work with YES! Winnipeg, where she played a key role attracting new private sector investments worth $135m to our City and helping to create new jobs.

As the founder of Cumula Inc. – her own business consulting company, Jenny works with diverse stakeholders every day. Sometimes, she takes the lead in solving business problems with clients like Bioscience Association Manitoba, the Information, Communications and Technology Association of Manitoba, Victoria Innovation, and the Canadian Digital Media Centre Network.

Sometimes, she is sought out to get results to solve community challenges, as she did when she helped to raise private sector funds and cut through layers of red tape to open Murray Field to the community at Dakota Collegiate.

Jenny believes the best asset she can bring to the Mayoralty is her proven record at leading teams to focus on delivering specific goals and shared priorities.
