Blair Shunk, Unrivald Digital Founder

Blair Shunk

Founder

Blair was digital before digital was even a term: he started working on web projects in the days of the Mosaic browser back in 1993.

Born and raised in northern Toronto, one of Blair’s proudest claims to fame is that he went to high school with Alex Liefson of Rush. After skiing the Rocky Mountains one spring break, Blair migrated west at the first opportunity. His decades working in the energy field taught Blair about professional behaviour, delivering as promised, and how to value and respect your fellow workers.

Blair brings a multi-disciplinary approach to his clients: he’s worked in project management, taught technophobes to embrace tech, managed corporate intranets with dozens of content contributors and hundreds of pages. He understands search, websites and rolling out online projects.

Blair is passionate about the power of the individual, and has been called an “encouragement dispenser” by some that know him well. He loves bringing smart, talented people together to form teams that outperform expectations. When not working, he’s spending time with friends and family. If you join him for a coffee, plan to play Six Degrees of Blair Shunk – he probably knows your neighbour’s pastor’s sister!

Gary Pitcher

Web Developer

Gary has forgotten more about technology than most of us will ever know. He’s worked in dozens of industries in a wide variety of roles and solves difficult problems recreationally. By the time you’ve formulated your question, Gary already has an answer, which would be annoying except he’s so darned nice about it.

Adrian Proctor

Web Developer

When you put Adrian behind a keyboard, magic happens. On stage, that means he’s making music. At work, he’s bringing website designs to life. Adrian is probably the quietest member of the Unrivald Digital team, but when he speaks, we all listen because we know he’s got something important to say.

Thiago Aragao

Digital Marketer

Thiago is all about visual and aesthetic. He loves to design with purpose and believes that every piece of design has to have a shape, a meaning, and a function. His claim to fame on the team is making everything look better than expected. He’s humble but takes pride in knocking every project out of the park.

Taylor Matheson

Account Manager

Taylor is our resident extravert. She’s an ace relationship builder, and a clever ad writer, which means she becomes a trustworthy partner to our team and our clients alike. She believes that relationships and a strong focus on the desired outcomes makes for more effective marketing with more meaningful results.

Shaheen Bhimani

Director

Shaheen is the guy you want in your corner when you’ve got a complex problem to solve in the next 15 minutes. He’s part MacGyver, part Tony Stark and part while still being the nicest guy in the room, hands down. His soft-spoken, down-to-earth vibe and ability to deliver makes him a client favourite.

Marie Davis

Director

Working in an agency setting is the perfect fit for Marie for whom a variety of intellectual challenges is what gets her out of bed in the morning (though admittedly, not really early). Working solo on a project, collaboratively with a client or managing a team, Marie thrives on high performance and bad jokes.

Blair Shunk

Founder

Whether leading a meeting, riding his motorcycle, or running in the Banff Jasper Relay (for which he was Race Director for many years), Blair connects with the world around him. He inspires his team to work hard while never forgetting the value of the relationships he builds with clients.
