Duane Bentley, Business Director | Lakeshore Vein & Aesthetics Clinic

Duane Bentley, Business Director

BCom (Hons)

Duane has over 20 years' experience as an IT/business consultant, a director in online/interactive media (strategy, sales and marketing), a small business owner, and a medical practice manager.

His primary concern is that patients have an excellent experience at the clinic while their medical or cosmetic needs are being met – and that staff love their job. Duane oversees the business of the clinic so the medical experts can focus on delivering great care to patients. Primarily Duane is focused on a culture of excellence: mentoring the team to be the best they can be personally and professionally. He also leads the strategy and helps operations with policy, HR, marketing... all the way down to changing light bulbs. Sometimes literally.

Born in White Rock, BC, as the middle child of three, his excellent and long-suffering parents did very well raising him – given what they had to work with. Duane's adventurous side led him to live in, or travel to, many parts of the world including Australia, New Zealand, Russia, China, England, Germany, France, Italy, Kenya, Uganda, etc. Along the way, he acquired many great friends, a Bachelor of Commerce (UofA), and a few life skills. Later, Duane married a wonderful and beautiful family friend who was to become Dr. Janna Bentley. This led, in turn, to living in sunny Kelowna, and raising an equally sunny family that he loves deeply.
