Populus Plus

Text - "It takes all of us"

Populus has been growing fast thanks to users who keep stretching the boundaries of how smart technology can be used to support new, measurable and sustainable ways to deliver value in healthcare. Populus is successful because of visionary leadership.

By providing effective and appropriate health technology, our users are able to provide collaborative and proactive care with the ultimate goal of improving health outcomes. It can’t change without all of us. The PopulusPlus solution successfully improves outcomes; reduces acute care costs; and enables operational efficiencies.

The PopulusPlus team is much more than a group of people who go to work at the same address. We work with each other toward the goal of better healthcare and we’re proud of it. If you have the skills and personality to work with us toward that goal; whether you are a rock climber, a ping pong pro (definitely a plus) or an avid gamer in your spare time, let’s have a conversation. We have bikers, artists, bakers and travelers, skiers, sports fanatics and even an amateur astronomer and we get things done because we truly are individuals working toward a common goal. This is US and there may be a role for you.

Rutter
Tristan Rutter is CEO and head coach of the PopulusPlus team as well as the coach of ski racing and soccer teams with the occasional appearance on the sidelines of the rugby pitch.  He returned with his family to Fredericton from ‘away’ and a career in big business, to lead this team to even bigger things. His vision for PopulusPlus makes working here exciting, his drive to make it happen keeps us all on our toes and his slightly off center sense of humour makes it fun.

Nick Rutter, as President and CTO, shows us how technology should be advanced. His background as a Mechanical Engineer provides him with the knowledge, but his dedication to PopulusPlus comes from years of helping to design our software and build the reputation which gives us bragging rights. In the last few years his passion for skiing and motorcycles has been displaced, but not fully dismissed, by his passion for being a dad.

Beth Webster’s official title is VP of Operations but as one of her favourite coffee mugs would indicate, she’s our Wonder Woman.  She’s been with PopulusPlus since the company took on the name Populus in 2010 and has juggled all things Administration, HR, Finance and Sales. She’s our resident wine connoisseur, world traveler and self-professed Queen B.

Debbie Bronnum’s business card says Culture & Office Coordinator, which means supporting pretty much every action and every person at PopulusPlus, but she’s actually our Office Mom.  She corrects our grammar, finds what we lost, remembers who did what and bakes a great carrot cake. If you wash your own dishes you could quickly become Mom’s favourite.

Whether it’s travelling to a remote location to watch an eclipse, ski racing, sailing, debating politics or helping his daughters with their many projects, Jeff doesn’t do things by half measures.  Jeff graduated with a Mechanical Engineering degree from UNB and has been with PopulusPlus ever since so is often called upon to be the company historian.

Colin Kilburn, our Director of Software Development knows the Populus system inside and out because he is one of the key builders.  He’s also a keen rugby enthusiast, martial arts student and, probably, most importantly, head chauffeur and fan for the next athletic generation of his family.  Colin challenges his team to be the best in their field during the week but on Friday afternoons the challenge is centered on the ping pong table.
