About Us

The PowerUp Team

Joe
Savoie

President & Founder

 

Dan 
Vella

Vice President, Soccer

Joe is an extraordinary manager and a superb listener. Once a boy scout, Joe still always comes prepared. He’s able to communicate with business people across all levels of the organization, as well as artists/designers and technical staff with equal ease. Joe has many years of technology experience as a developer, teacher and project manager, and he is extremely adept at translating complex business requirements into practical processes and functional technical solutions.

 

Dan has vast business development experience, and a strong track record of successfully identifying opportunities and delivering customer service excellence. Collaborative and extremely diligent, he is adept at working with professionals of all backgrounds, disciplines and technical abilities to merge business understanding with technical know-how. Dan is also bilingual (English/French), and has worked in a variety of industries in Canada, Australia and the UK.

He also makes a mean homemade mac 'n' cheese (according to his daughter).

Soccer Stuffs

Angus
March

Web Developer
& UX Pro

Breanna has been a part of the soccer community since before she was tall enough to ride roller coasters and spent most of her childhood telling her friends “I can’t, I have soccer!”. In the youth soccer world, she’s spent time as a player, coach, referee, administrator, and board member. With experience working in both a traditional youth soccer club and in a community centre, Breanna brings a unique perspective to all things club management related.

In her spare time, Breanna can be found curating extensive music playlists and petting every dog she sees.

 

Angus can often be found bouncing in his chair to music while programming new features or implementing new screens for PowerUp.  Not the most sport-savvy of the bunch he spent his youth kicking it on the dance floor instead of kicking balls over the goalline. These days he spends his spare time reading articles on emerging web technologies and user experience trends or updating his skills via online courses.

Angus looks forward to teaching his infant son to breakdance.
