Darren Lemke photoUCPBA Calgary President

Darren Lemke is President of Approach Management Group Ltd. An entrepreneur with over 25 years of dental industry experience,  Darren enjoys using his knowledge of finance and business practices, as well as the friendships gained over the years, to help others achieve success.

It’s my pleasure to serve as President of UCPBA, the Ukrainian business club here in Calgary. It is our goal to be the gateway to the Ukrainian business community, not only in Calgary, but across Southern Alberta.

Our emphasis is on bringing together people with a Ukrainian background for the purposes of business networking and mentorship, and to share ideas for building business growth in our community. Whether you are Ukrainian by birth or by marriage, if you can say “I have a Baba in my life’, I encourage you to come to check us out.

I look forward to meeting all of you this year. Whether you own a business, are part of a business, or are a practicing professional; whether you are just starting out or are already retired, I hope to see you at one of our events, where you can meet new friends and make business connections.
