Jan Veiel



Jan graduated from Yale University with a degree in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry and a minor concentration in literature. Finding that neither of these were destined to be his career path, he traded lab coat for coat and tie and joined Hay & Watson in 2006, obtaining his CA designation in due course.

Jan has multi-faceted experience providing assurance, tax and advisory services to companies in the mineral resource exploration sector. He is also involved in the firm’s services to venture capital companies and small and medium-sized non-profit organizations.

Jan enjoys interacting with clients to find out how to best match client needs with the services and expertise that Hay & Watson offers. He has a passion for accurate financial reporting and finds particular satisfaction in the process of providing value to stakeholders by distilling complex financial transactions into clear and standards-compliant disclosure. He is also the CA student coordinator for Hay & Watson and has a strong interest in student education and development.

Away from the office, Jan was an avid badminton player until injuries relegated him to less strenuous activities and can now be found enjoying the awesome outdoors around Vancouver as often as work and family allow.
