Reinier deSmit

Reinier deSmit is C3inc’s Creative Director.

At the age of 8, two important things happened to him: his grandfather gave him an accordion and he started music lessons, and a good family friend gave him an old 35mm film camera and Reinier’s passion for images was born.

That camera no longer exists and Reinier no longer uses “film”, but his passion for digital arts, video, music and photography has only increased over the years (and he still plays, to some people’s horror, the accordion).

With a wide range of experience in video creation, digital photo & imaging, audio design and music creation as well as web & graphic design, Reinier’s zealousness for computer-based creative expression has kept him on the cutting edge of this ever-changing and exciting landscape.

Rosemary Lutz

An experienced project manager and analyst, Rosemary Lutz possesses outstanding skills to initiate, plan and execute complex projects and assignments. She is C3inc’s Financial Officer and has over 36 years of experience working with the Ontario government, and spent several years managing the Business Analysis Unit of the OHIP Claims Services branch for the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, providing business analysis and project management to support the modernization of claims processing.

Rosemary has significant experience gathering and analyzing data to identify options, assess impacts and evaluate outcomes. She is a natural collaborator, and ensures quality results are achieved on time and within budget.

Rosemary is an avid golfer and curler – but away from the links and rinks, you’ll most likely find her curled up with a good book.
